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 & Paro Tshechu 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. Our journey 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. Here we attend the famous Paro Tshechu festival before driving across the dramatic Dochu La into central Bhutan, to Bumthang. It is widely regarded that Bhutanese Buddhism first took hold here and the legacies are the many ancient and magnificent monasteries which we will explore.

traveller reviews

I'm now back safely from my holiday in Bhutan and had a great time. Everything went really well and very smoothly. Our guide was a star, the accommodation and food were above expectation (I loved the national dish of cheese and chillies) and the whole tour was totally fascinating...
