Sitting at the foot of the Himalayas, Bhutan has long been considered the last Buddhist Kingdom and has remained isolated from the modern world for centuries. On this journey, explore this captivating place with daily hikes through rural towns and lush forests, as you make your way to the legendary Tiger’s Nest and relax at some of the area’s most incredible lodges. Discover ancient monasteries and rustic farmhouses as you are welcomed for meals and meditations and take in the beautiful, wild landscapes. Plus, experience the Druk Wangyel festival, a unique cultural celebration performed by the Royal Bhutan Army.

A spot on this trip may be reserved with a 50% non-refundable deposit, with the balance to be paid in full by March 1, 2024.

What to Expect

Highlights and special experiences include:

Explore Bhutan’s unique culture, architecture and history, as you journey from Thimphu to Gangtey, Punakha and Paro through visits with local farmers, tours of medieval fortresses and stops for scenic picnics along the way.

Challenge yourself and marvel at the natural beauty of Bhutan on hiking trails that wind through forest-covered mountains dotted with ancient temples and rural villages—including the trek up to the aweinspiring Tiger’s Nest.

Immerse yourself in the spirituality of one of the world’s oldest Buddhist countries (and the happiest country on earth) with visits to monasteries and sacred sites, where you will meet Buddhist monks and have the opportunity to experience private meditations, blessing ceremonies and astrology readings.
