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.

Thimphu

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.

Punakha

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

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.
