Bhutan has spell-binding rural scenery, from lush green terraced rice-paddies rolling up to high mountain passes with Buddhist prayers fluttering in the wind, to the snow-capped mountains above. With a national manifesto that’s based on cumulative, community happiness and cohesion, the country has only recently stepped out of the shadows. Our Bhutan Travel specialists living in Bhutan can put together a tailor-made itinerary for Bhutan to suit your interests.
From Paro in the west you can visit the Tiger’s Nest Monastery, one of the most sacred places of pilgrimage in the country, perched on a sheer ridge at a dizzying height of 3,000m above sea level. Explore the capital Thimpu’s markets and crisply painted chorten. Head east across the Dochu La pass to the green vales of Punakha to reach the 17th-century Punakha Dzong or "Palace of Happiness". The arrival of migratory black-necked cranes is celebrated each winter in the rural communities of Phobjikha Valley, while Bumthang Valley acts as the spiritual heartland of Bhutan. Cross the Thrumsingla Pass to the east and you find minority villages with traditional animalist beliefs.
