The Experience

Rugged mountain landscapes, ancient monasteries and earlier-age magic are just some of the promising attractions drawing travellers to Bhutan. Steeped in Buddhist traditions, this remote Himalayan kingdom takes pride in a sustainable approach to tourism which makes fulfilling the travel dreams more challenging. This six-day guided tour makes for a great way of exploring the local wonders - pristine nature, mysterious temples, and intricate murals hiding behind the walls of monasteries.

The Itinerary

  • Pay a visit to the 12th-century Changangkha Lhakhang temple, a popular pilgrimage destination temple
