Imagine a country where a land’s worth is measured differently – think Gross National Happiness instead of Gross Domestic Product. Now stop dreaming because you are in the unexplored mountain kingdom of Bhutan. Beauty and wisdom are revealed at each dzong, every gompa, and most incredibly, in the eyes of every smiling Buddhist monk you meet. On treks through remote trails and visits to Paro, Thimphu, and Punakha, nature lovers, photographers, and culture junkies will uncover a purity of experiences, traditions, and kindness.
Travel along mystical mountains, visit various dzongs and Buddhist gompas, trek along scenic nature trails, experience the Dragon Kingdom with cultural interactions at a local farm, take in stunning Himalayan mountain views
Hotels/guesthouses (7 nts), camping (1 nt), farmhouse stay (1 nt).
