Tailor-made Vacations to Bhutan

What you will see and experience:

Bhutan is a mystic land where the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas kiss the sky and lush green meadows create a wonderful chaos of colours which touch your inner soul. Its dense forests of rhododendron, magnolias, junipers and a variety of orchids of various colours have created a world that seems to have come out straight out of a fantasy tale. Visit Thimpu, Paro, Punakha, Takung Valley and Bumthang to experience the true spirit of Bhutan and you will be thoroughly impressed with its beauty, culture and the exquisite hospitality of its people.

Bhutan is a land where travelling at leisure will give you ample time to soak in its true spirit and rejuvenate your mind, body and soul.

Though Bhutan has made rapid progress in recent years, the remarkable coexistence of traditional values and modernity that you will see will surely leave you spellbound. Bhutan’s history dates back to thousands of years, and every corner of it is soaked in Buddhism.

Not surprisingly, you will find Buddhist monasteries, gompas everywhere, where you can immerse yourself in uninterrupted serenity and peace.

Thimphu, the capital city is the centre of activity of Bhutan. Buddha Dordenma Statue – the gigantic 177 feet tall statue of Shakyamuni Buddha, the Tashichho Dzong Buddhist Monastery, Tango Buddhist Institute, Thimphu Memorial Chorten, and the National Folk Heritage Museum are the main attractions of Thimphu.

The lush greenery of Paro will soothe your eyes and the intricate designs of the traditional houses that you will find here will definitely impress you. Visit the Jangtsa Dumtseg Lhakhang and Kichu Lhakang, the well-preserved ancient Buddhist monasteries, to experience their calm atmosphere. The architectural brilliance of the spectacular Taktsang Monastery located more than 800 metres above the Paro valley in a ledge will leave you awestruck.

The beauty of Punakha, the winter capital of Bhutan is also remarkable. The elegant design of the 17th-century fortress Punakha Dzong will give you an insight into Bhutan’s glorious past. Go for a hike to the Khamsum Yulley Namgyal Chorten via the Punakha Suspension Bridge to catch an uninterrupted 360° view of the lush greenery of the gorgeous valley of Punakha. A drive to the scenic Dochula Pass, which lies between Thimpu and Punakha will give you an exquisite view of the snow-capped Himalayas and will bring your tour to Bhutan a glorious end.
