Bhutan Insights

Bhutan remains one of the world's least accessible countries. Television was only introduced in 1999. Yet the home of Gross National Happiness welcomes its guests with a warm heart and deep spirit.

This tour focuses on the Kingdom's western valleys of Paro, Thimpu and the ancient capital of Punakha.  We start the journey by taking the fifty minutes flight from Kathmandu to Paro which can truly be described as a flight into fantasy. During the flight a firsthand close up view of Mt. Everest, Mt. Kanchenjunga and many other famous Peaks become a reality. In Paro we visit the famous museum and take the 2 hour walk to the impressive Taktsang Monastery nestled on the cliff edge high above the Paro Valley. In the capital city of Thimphu we visit the local markets and appreciate the monasteries and forts that reflect the deep cultural heritage of this remarkable Buddhist kingdom. On the way to Punakha we cross the Dochu La Pass (3,100m) to get views of the Himalayan ranges.

Mountains, Monasteries and Dzongs leave you with a lasting memory along with some of the most scenic photographs to share with family and friends.
