Bhutan Cultural 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 highly regulated by the government.
Culture: Bhutan is a deeply devout Buddhist country and religion is part of everyday life from the ceremonies performed by red-robed monks in ancient monasteries to the prayer flags which flutter across hills and villages.
When to Go: The best time to go is spring (Mar – May), to witness Bhutan in full bloom, and autumn (Sep – Nov), when there is very little rain and the skies are clear, offering the best mountain viewing. Winter (Dec – Mar) is the best time to view Black-necked Cranes at their winter home in the Phobjikha Valley.
Combine With: Combine a cultural tour with a trek, village walk or some other exciting outdoor adventure such as whitewater rafting. You can also combine Bhutan with a tour in neighbouring India.
Getting There: Most of our tours include return airfares from Bangkok, Thailand to Paro in Bhutan. Alternatively, you can fly from Singapore, Nepal or various cities within India.
