Bhutan Festival Tour Overview
Why Bhutan: Bhutan is one of the most unique travel destinations on earth. Discover ancient Buddhist monasteries, temples, dzongs and chortens as well as local foods, traditions and dramatic scenery. Accommodation is of a high standard, and all tourism is strictly regulated by the government.
Culture: Bhutan is a deeply devout Buddhist country and religion plays a big part in everyday life. Local devotion is evident in the many ceremonies performed by red-robed monks in ancient monasteries throughout the land to the prayer flags which flutter across hills and villages.
When to Go: The best time to go is from March to May or from September to November. Festival dates are determined by the lunar calendar. We strongly recommend you book 3-6 months in advance for travel during festivals to secure accommodation and flights.
Combine With: Festival tour itineraries usually include other cultural and scenic highlights in the country. You can combine these tours with trekking, or with a holiday in neighbouring India or Nepal.
Getting There: Most of our tours include the return airfare from Bangkok, Thailand to Paro in Bhutan. Alternatively you can also fly from Singapore, Nepal, and various cities within India.
