Bhutan Tour

Bhutan is a beautiful Buddhist Kingdom which is situated between Tibet in the north and India in the South. It is a unique destination for visitors to explore ancient and historical temples and monasteries, real Buddhist culture and philosophy, flora and fauna, trekking and mountaineering. It is the most adventurous destination in terms of bio-diversity, untouched by modernization and provides stunning views of the Himalayas. A trip to Bhutan is considered a once in a lifetime experience. We welcome you to explore this fascinating and mysterious land.

Bhutan is the best-kept secret in the travel industry. Due to its relative isolation, the country is not known to the outside world and until 1960, western visitors rarely visited the country. Today still, few people know of the beauty of Bhutan. The few who do visit this magical place find an ancient Buddhist culture thriving in a landscape of incredible natural beauty. The mountains are magnificent, the countryside green, the air pure and unpolluted and the architecture striking. Our tours and treks give you an intimate insight into Bhutan’s Buddhist culture and way of life.
