Trip Info

Enjoy learning about the local culture, heritage, history and traditions on this cultural immersion tour. As recently as 1961, all entry into Bhutan was still on horseback. Druk-yul, the land of the thunder dragon, is only just emerging from the mists of its self-imposed isolation. The last Shangrila is an exotic land of high mountains and lush valleys, snow clad peaks with clear running springs, a pristine ecology and an incredible wealth of wildlife.

A most striking feature of Bhutan is its architecture. The style and color which characterize every building and house in the kingdom is a distinct source of aesthetic pleasure. The Dzongs themselves, imposing 17th century structures built on a grand scale without drawing and without a single nail, are outstanding examples of the best in Bhutanese architecture. Patterns of rich colors adorn every wall, beam, pillar and door in traditional splendor.

Nestled deep in the eastern Himalayas between India and Tibet, the simple pleasure that this country offers gives a sense of kinship with the people and their love for the land. Essentially a rural country with 90 per cent of the people engaged in agriculture or raising livestock, Bhutan is predominantly Buddhist, practicing the Tantric form of Mahayana Buddhism. Bhutan is a unique blend of the old and new. Here is a country that is slowly opening up to the modern world in a fine balance with its ancient traditions, as stated by the Tourism Council of Bhutan.

You will get to visit Thimphu, the new capital city of Bhutan with vibrant cultures, monuments, pristine environment; Paro with beautiful valleys with many historical sites; and, Punakha, the old capital with a spectacular dzong in between the male and female rivers and amazing hikes to Chortens and monasteries and always full of crisp air. The trip will be planned coinciding with yearly festivals, if not cultural programs will be arranged to showcase the vibrant culture of Bhutan to our guests.
