Bhutan is a unique country in many ways. Famed for its culture, it's traditions and the iconic Tiger's Nest Monastery.
Travellers looking for something different will certainly find it here. The remote trekking (over 60% of Bhutan is forested), tours focusing on culture, textiles (just about every household has a weaving loom), bird watching or the festivals are all here.
Due to the country's system of a fixed rate fee for visitors, this not a backpacker's destination! Visas are strictly controlled and issued by authorised Agents, such as us!

There is some fantastic trekking in Bhutan from day walks, the leisurely 3 day Bumthang Owl trek, the 5 day Druk Path to the longer and more challenging Jomolhari. The reputed toughest trek in the world (the Snowman) is also in Bhutan. The colourful festivals in Paro (spring) and Thimphu (autumn) are very popular periods and unless you book well in advance, you are unlikely to be able to access Bhutan by air as the seats will be sold out.
A combined tour/trek is a good way to experience Bhutan to its full and if that also includes a festival, there is little more to fit in! Apart from a hot stone bath and a game of archery that is; the National sport.
Access into Bhutan by air is best done through Kathmandu in our opinion, to avoid unnecessary and risky missed flight connections or sleepless nights during travel. Let us plan your next visit.
