About Trip

This tour is perfectly designed to offer you an insightful cultural fascination of Bhutan. This is a lovely kingdom that follows the idea of Gross National Happiness that stresses more on paying attention to the good welfare of a human being. You are encouraged to visit this country yourself to see what its like to believe what you hear. As you begin to digest in the relentless succession of astonishing cultural wonders, you travel from Paro to Thimphu and from thereon to Wangduephodrang. The journey is silhouetted by outstanding panoramic views. Drugyel Dzong majestically towers Paro with dominating views of Mount Chomolhari. The spectacular hillock of Chomolhari perched high overlooking the entire valley of Ta-Dzong houses distinguishing cultural monuments and artifacts that reflect a long and varied history. In Thimphu, you get to experience indigenous culture in its most genuine form of visiting monasteries, a museum, stupas, a library, chortens and many such sites of cultural importance. You can explore the local market souks for a good selection of crafted artifacts, ceramics, basketry, traditional wood carvings and contemporary paintings. Wangduephodrang and Punakha Dzong further acquaint you with the deep-rooted cultural values of Bhutan that remains unchanged till today.

Your trip to Bhutan will be great and there's so much you will learn about this beautiful kingdom. And oh yes, we must mention that Bhutanese food is really good and everyone must try the food when you get there.
