It is important to get the right balance between incorporating the iconic sights of any country with some less visited cultural highlights. And as always it is the quality of our guides that make the difference and bring these wonders to life.
Bhutan’s Buddhist religion is the perfect backdrop for a relaxed cultural and spiritual journey. Time your trip with one of the many festivals taking place in the beautiful dzongs and palaces. The highlight is Tiger’s Nest and we know a hidden route to access it before the masses arrive.
