Highlights of our Bhutan tours
The Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan is a treasure trove of magnificent Buddhist temples and monasteries, mighty forts and palaces, and untouched mountainous scenery. Here's a selection of the best of them to get you started with your holiday planning.
Bhutan’s capital city Thimpu is a thriving, modern region. The perfect place for tourists to embrace Bhutanese culture. The general way of life there consists of a fascinating mix of the contemporary and antique, allowing its population to modernise without forsaking its cultural heritage and identity. Some unusual features of this city are its traffic-light-free streets and its dry Tuesday, when the sale of alcohol is prohibited.
Picturesque Punakha is simply stunning. Packed full of history. The spectacular Himalayas in the background, it sits at the confluence of the powerful Pho Chhu and Mo Chhu rivers, and is filled with beautiful white and terracotta buildings. Every year the town transforms into a hub of activity as the Punakha festival takes place, commemorating the country’s victory against the Tibetan army through re-enactments of the battle. It is an incredibly important showcase of Bhutanese culture.
Wangdue spreads itself across almost 4,500 square kilometres, making it among the largest districts in Bhutan. The region also ranges dramatically in altitude allowing for a wonderfully diverse collection of wildlife with red pandas and spotted eagles among some of the creatures to keep an eye out for. Wangdue also hosts an annual festival in celebration of the black-necked crane, designed to spread awareness of their rare and endangered status.
The expansive Gangtey valley is one of Bhutan's most beautiful places and something of a rarity in the mountainous kingdom. Of interest in the region is the elaborate Gangteng monastery, the only one west of the Black Mountains and an important centre for Nyingmapa Buddhism. Gangtey and the surrounding valley are also the home of the endangered black-necked crane and many fortunate bird-watchers have spotted the creature from the local information centre, using its powerful telescopes.
Bumthang is known as religious epicentre of Bhutan and boasts some of the country’s oldest places of worship. The region is nestled in valleys surrounded by dramatic mountains covered in rich green foliage. Imbued with centuries of religious legend, the spiritual Bumthang has a number of intriguing temples and monasteries worthy of attention including Jambay Lhakhang which originally dates back to the 7th century.
