Travelling to Bhutan is a rare pleasure, as the country has only recently opened its borders to visitors and is relatively untouched by the outside world. Our Bhutan travel packages allow you to experience the country in all its glory.
When travelling in Bhutan, you will quickly realise that the country has largely resisted overdevelopment. There are still many villages that operate without running water and electricity, but these facilities can be found in cities.
Being located so close to the Himalayas has meant that many people come to the country for Bhutan trekking tours. One of the most popular treks in Bhutan is to the amazing Tiger’s Nest monastery, perched atop a cliff face.
Religious festivals are celebrated here year round, from smaller regional events through to larger nationally recognised ceremonies. These festivals preserve and celebrate the culture through parades, sport, dance, drumming and art.
Be aware that Bhutanese food is known for being spicy, but vegetarians will be spoilt for choice as meat isn’t overly prevalent here. Make sure you try Red Rice, Chilli Cheese, Momo (dumplings) and Red Panda Beer.
Some of the must-visit locations for any Bhutan tour includes: the Tiger’s Nest Monastery, Gangte Goemba, the ruins of Drukgyel Dzong, the Buddhist temple of Kyichu Lhakhang, Paro, the museums of Thimphu, and the Himalayas.
