Bhutan Cultural Tour with Three days Bimthang Trek

Duration: 12 Days

Bhutan Cultural Tour with Three days Bimthang Trek combines sightseeing and trekking effortlessly in one package. Bhutan often called the Land of Happiness is a small landlocked country bordered by India and China. The unexploited ancient culture and traditions including the practice of strict Buddhism make this country so unique.

The country's extreme measure to protect the nature has resulted in making it one of the few countries in the world with most protected areas in the world and the only carbon-negative nation in the world. This 12 day Bhutan trip starts at an altitude of 2,195m and reaches up to 3,360m.

The trip starts at Paro where we visit KichuLhakhang, Ta Dzong, and RinpungDzong. Also, we hike to one of the most famous landmarks of the country, Taktsang Monastery (Tiger’s Nest). While in the capital Thimphu, we’ll visit Memorial Chorten, National Institute of Traditional Medicine and TashichhoDzong where we will get to know more about the Bhutanese history. Next, we drive to Punakha where PunakhaDzong sits in all its glory; it is the oldest and second largest Dzong in Bhutan.

Our trek begins from Bimthang; we get familiar with the rural Bhutanese culture in the trek. Climbing high passes, passing through picturesque forested valleys, camping at beautiful places and many other wonders make this three-day-long trek a truly fascinating ride.
