This trip includes sightseeing and exploring several unique Bhutanese monasteries, forts, and a lovely three-day trek through the mountains from Bumthang Valley to the Paro Valley.
If there is a Shangri-La, then it is here, in the Himalayas’ lap, inhabited by the happiest people on earth. The tiny Kingdom of Bhutan is a magical land of mysticism and mystery. Bhutan certainly lives up to its reputation for blending modernity and tradition seamlessly in a country that believes in low volume and high impact tourism. There is much to see, do, and learn here — from the giant phalluses painted on every door to the colorful locals clad in traditional threads, from outrageous archery competitions to spectacular dance festivals, from snow-capped stunning Buddhist gompas to vibrant towns, and from the snow-capped Himalayas to the burgeoning virgin forests, Bhutan captivates and enchants its visitors.
“Whenever anyone asks me what Bhutan is like, I find the best way to describe it is like Narnia: it is so remote and unlike anywhere else on Earth that I’ve visited. And then I implore them to visit before it is too late before it all inevitably changes.”
