Set on the eastern ridges of the mighty Himalaya and sandwiched between Tibet and India, Bhutan is a dream destination. Dramatic scenery, winding mountain passes, snow-capped peaks, fluttering prayer flags and vibrant rhododendrons are the backdrop for a colourful culture steeped in religion and mythology.
Here in the Land of the Thunder Dragon, you can hike through stunning valleys and across rugged high passes, visit isolated villages and explore the countless dzongs (fortresses) and tiny Buddhist monasteries that dot the landscape. Then, visit the unforgettable "Tiger's Nest", the sacred Taktsang Monastery that clings dramatically to the side of a steep, forest-studded granite cliff.
Trek through the picturesque Paro Valley to the base of Chomolhari, Bhutan's second highest mountain, crossing glacial streams and observing the majestic peaks of the Himalaya through a frame of colourful rhododendron blooms. Or be one of the few people each year to join our challenging Bhutan Snowman Trek, ranked as one of the greatest treks in the Himalaya, as it weaves a path through the most remote region of Bhutan.
Explore local culture and shop for beautiful textiles and handicrafts in Thimpu, Bhutan's delightful capital; take in the dancing, cheering and drama of a traditional Bhutanese archery tournament; or watch local history and mythology come alive at Bumthang's Jambay Lakhang festival.
Whichever adventure you choose; you'll be captivated by the stunning landscapes, ancient culture and humble people of Bhutan.
