Whether you’re interested in learning about Bhutan’s heritage and history, or simply want to trek through the country’s staggering mountainous landscape and wide open plains, guides in Bhutan eagerly await your arrival. Bhutan’s skilled guides who are certified by the Tourism Council of Bhutan, and thus ensure top-quality service, know the ins and outs of their barely-touched country.
