Snowman Trek: Bhutan

We had an absolutely fantastic time. The countryside in Bhutan is so pristine and we really enjoyed the remoteness. It certainly was physically challenging and it was a credit to the two leaders that all 10 clients completed it safely.

Bhutan Explorer & Jambay Lhakhang Festival

The remote Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan is well known for it's untouched wilderness, rich Buddhist culture and a history steeped in mystique and legend. This unique journey of discovery encompasses all that Bhutan has to offer taking in the 'must see' highlights of both western and central Bhutan. Our tour begins in the picturesque Paro Valley, home to the Tigers Nest (Taktsang) monastery, before we drive across the dramatic Dochu La into central Bhutan, to Bumthang where we spend 3 days attending the vibrant Jambay Lakhang festival. It is widely regarded that Bhutanese Buddhism first took hold here and the legacies are the many ancient and magnificent monasteries in and around the area.

traveller reviews

This was one of the very best travelling experiences I have had (and I have been travelling extensively during the last 10 years). Long distances between locations were broken by planned stops at places of interest. The festival celebrations were amazing.
