Embark on an exciting trip to Bhutan, a kingdom in the midst of the Himalayas. With us you will experience the wonders of the country, with its never-ending mountains, deep lush valleys, peaceful Buddhist culture, friendly people, and unique Bhutanese architecture. Bhutan is a pristine country nestled between Tibet (to the north) and India (to the south, east, and west), and the fact that it has been able to maintain a very strong cultural and national identity, considering its small size, is refreshing. Bhutan is the place to go if you want to be surrounded by breathtaking scenery every moment of the day.

Our Tours: Whether you are interested in a challenging high-altitude trek, an easygoing cultural tour, a biking tour, or a bird-watching itinerary, we have something to suit your tastes, timeframe, and abilities. All of our itineraries are designed for private tours, meaning that we will not group you together with other tourists. So you can travel solo or bring along a few friends. You decide who will be in your group, and you will have your own guide and transportation. Though we have many preset popular itineraries, please feel free to customize your schedule.
Tour Package Inclusions: All of our tour packages include accommodation, meals, overland transport within Bhutan, sightseeing, a local tour guide, and a supply of pack and riding animals when and where needed for treks. All of our guides are local, and all are licensed and trained by the Department of Tourism in Bhutan. In addition, the guides are fluent in English and thoroughly knowledgeable about all aspects of the country and culture. We pride ourselves on giving personal attention to our guests, and we believe in being friendly and courteous.
Traveling in Bhutan: Bhutan is still a relatively unknown tourist destination, and tourism in Bhutan is highly regulated by the government. If you want to visit Bhutan, you must do so through one of the licensed Bhutanese tour companies. You cannot travel in Bhutan on your own. This policy ensures that when you tour Bhutan, you will be immersed in a culture and environment that have been carefully preserved.
Trekking in Bhutan is a unique and wonderful experience! You will hike through deep forests, along rushing streams, through typical villages, across high mountain passes, and near rice paddy terraces, encountering blue sheep, a variety of birds, yaks and yak herders, takins, and monkeys. On our Jumolhari trek you will even have the chance to camp at the base of the second-highest mountain in Bhutan. Imagine waking up to the sun rising over the majestic peak, while breakfast is being prepared for you. If you're up for a challenge, you will enjoy our Laya/Gasa or Jumolhari trek, but if you'd prefer a more moderate trek, our Gantey, Druk Path, or Jumolhari Base Camp trek would be perfect for you. Our team of experts will guide you every step of the way and make sure you have the best experience possible.
Without further delay, please let us take you on a travel adventure to the Land of the Thunder Dragon!
