Bhutan often revered as the “land of the Peaceful Dragon” regarded as one of the last Shangri-La in the Himalayan region because of it’s remoteness, it’s spectacular mountain terrain, varied flora and fauna and it’s unique ancient Buddhist monasteries. It is one of the reactively unexplored pockets of Asia which allow only limited number of discerning travelers to enter the country with a special visa permits.
Bhutan’s isolation has resulted in its culture and traditional remaining much the same for many hundreds of years. Our introductory 8 days Western Bhutan Culture tour will be through the stunning beautiful alpine valley’s flanked by steep slopes and terraced pastures dotted with temple. The highlight of tour will be visits to Simtokha Dzong within the tiny capital township of Thimpu and the Taktsang Monastery that clings to a sheer 3,000 foot rock face cliffs.
Festival (Tscechus) are held in Bhutan throughout the year at different locations. These festivals are celebration of faith, legends, myths and history of Bhutanese in ancient rituals of colorful dance and music. To co-incide a visit to Bhutan during the festive season would be an added bonus and even better way to observe the unique culture.
