The Bhutan tour is the best way to explore the cultural treasures of Bhutan. This 4 days tour will let you experience the essence of Bhutanese cities in the lap of the great Himalayan Range. You can discover this kingdom known as the 'Land of the Thunder Dragon' or Druk Yul in Dzongka, the local dialect. This destination is the least explored in Asia, allowing fewer tourists to visit each season to preserve the ecosystem. With more than seventy percent of the country covered by forests, Bhutan is one of the greenest countries in the world, measuring prosperity by the ' gross national happiness index'. 

On this tour, your journey begins with a flight to Paro, enjoying the aerial views of the Himalayan mountains. Explore the magnificent Ta Dzong, the national museum housed in an ancient fortress, and the grand Paro or Rinpung Dzong featuring exquisite wooden carvings and paintings. Hike to the Tiger's Nest or Taktsang Monastery, built on the side of a rocky cliff, and the meditation cave of Padmasambhava who introduced  Buddism to Tibet and Bhutan.

Being in Thimpu's pristine city provides a great opportunity to understand more about the culture, lifestyle, and Buddhism. You can explore Wangdsite Monastery, the Thangtang Dewachen Monastery, Changangkha Lakahang, and the Painting School or National Institute for Zorig Chusum. Besides that, the glorious Taschihho Dzong and the hilltop shrine of Buddha Dordenma will amaze you in many ways. This tour involves hiking, easy walking, and driving on pitched roads, suitable for all age groups. You can join us in all four seasons to experience the cultural treasures of Bhutan.
