Overview

Bhutan, the land of Thunder Dragon, is no ordinary place. This Himalayan kingdom is full of myths and legends, where the best of traditional culture thrives with the superlative landscape, timeless Buddhist culture, stunning ancient fortresses, and colorful festivals. Ever since Bhutan opened its doors to tourism in 1974, the government kept the number of tourists visiting Bhutan to an environmentally manageable level. Hidden high amongst the mighty Himalayan range this kingdom of Bhutan is, therefore, a destination even the most seasoned traveler considers a privilege to visit. This exclusive cultural trip will make you discover the magic of Bhutan in the luxury and comfort you deserve. Our trip to Last Shangri-La will allow you to travel through time while exploring sacred monasteries which sit precariously on sheer cliffs while red-robed monks chant in distant temples, and colorful masked dancers perform ancient rituals on sacred Dzong (fortress) grounds during Buddhist festivals. In addition to encountering the rich cultural heritage of this exclusively Buddhist kingdom, you will also come upon awe-inspiring landscapes of snow-clad mountains, lush valleys, dense forests, rushing streams and the daily life in far-flung rural communities. You will be taken deep into the heart of Bhutan for you to see the very best the kingdom has to offer in the most comfortable and exclusive way possible, and will come back enchanted by the proud Bhutanese who are renowned for their happiness.
