This cultural touring journey to Darjeeling, Sikkim and the ‘Dragon Kingdom' of Bhutan will appeal to the Himalayan enthusiast keen to appreciate the culture and history of the East Himalayan Kingdoms. We include time in the renowned hill station of Darjeeling and gain memorable views of Kanchenjunga – the third highest mountain in the world. In Sikkim we visit the Rumtek Monastery in Gangtok, and Kalimpong, where trade thrived between British India and Tibet until the early 1900's. We drive across the border to Bhutan where we visit the famous Taktsang Monastery and make the short drive to the capital of Thimphu, where we have ample opportunity to wander the bazaars before crossing the Dochu La to Wangduephodrang and the remarkable Punakha Dzong.
