Uncover the beauty of Bhutan, the last Himalayan kingdom, with its towering fortress-monasteries, sweeping mountains, fertile valleys and vibrant traditions. 

At a Glance

  • Wander through ancient monasteries of the last Himalayan kingdom 
  • Attend two of Bhutan’s colourful festivals, with masked dancers and spectators wearing their finest embroidered costumes   
  • Explore the Bumthang region in central Bhutan, the country’s cultural heartland 
  • Ascend to Tiger’s Nest, the emblematic Bhutanese temple perched on a cliff edge 900 meters above the Paro Valley 

The ‘Land of the Thunder Dragon’ is like no other, with its impressive architecture, dramatic landscapes, wonderful textiles and fascinating Buddhist customs. Myth and legend intertwine in a place where monks dance and tigers are said to fly, where rice is red and men don traditional robes with argyle socks. 

Venture into picturesque central Bhutan and discover the country’s cultural and religious heartland in the Trongsa and Bumthang regions.  

Spring is an ideal time to visit Bhutan; rainfall and humidity are low, while pleasant temperatures and mostly clear skies allow the incredible landscapes to be enjoyed at their best.
