Things to do in Bhutan

The remote Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan stands proudly independent, holding steadfast to its well-established traditions and deeply rooted religious beliefs. Our specialists have undertaken numerous journeys to explore this captivating land, enabling us to craft a meticulously detailed tailor-made itinerary for Bhutan tailored to your unique interests. We'll guide you to discover the hidden gems of Bhutan, from renowned chortens (shrines) to lesser-visited rural communities.

Beginning in Paro in the west, you can embark on an awe-inspiring visit to the Tiger's Nest Monastery, perched precariously on a cliff-face high above the Paro Valley. Immerse yourself in the vibrant markets of the capital, Thimphu, and admire the crisply painted chorten. Journey eastward, crossing the Dochu La pass to reach the lush valleys of Punakha, where the 17th-century Punakha Dzong stands as a testament to Bhutan's rich history.

In the winter, the arrival of migratory black-necked cranes is celebrated in the rural communities of Phobjikha Valley, a sight to behold. Meanwhile, the Bumthang Valley cradles royal shrines and revered temples, offering a serene spiritual experience. Venture eastward, crossing the Thrumshingla Pass, and you'll encounter minority villages where traditional animist beliefs still thrive.
