About this trip


Thank you for your interest in this fantastic journey to Bhutan. We have hand-crafted this tour from our own experience and hope you fall in love with the area—as we have! 


We’d like to let you in on a little secret—Bhutan. Typically people we tell about Bhutan ask “Where is Bhutan?” and that’s just the way we like it. It is this anonymity that Bhutan has  preserved so well, for so many years, that makes it special. The Kingdom of Bhutan is a hidden 

gem that is often compared to Tibet before the Chinese invasion, and Nepal without the budget backpackers. 

Bhutan lies along the lofty ridges of the Himalayas—a remarkable land where the well-preserved countryside, architecture, and culture appear lost in time. The capital city, Thimphu, is said to be 

the only capital in the world without traffic lights. Our walks in Punakha reveal impressive dzongs, while Paro’s location along ancient trade routes has created a rich culture, encapsulated  by its unique monasteries, such as the striking Tiger’s Nest. Let us introduce you to Bhutan, a  truly peaceful kingdom!

Before You Go


It is very important that you realistically assess your physical condition with regard to the demands of this trip. The more well-prepared you are for the activities, the more you will enjoy  yourself. As a general guideline, we suggest that you engage in easy to moderate aerobic  activities (such as walking, hiking, jogging, or cycling) for at least 30-45 minutes several times a 

week for 4-6 weeks before the trip. If you live in a flat area, try to incorporate some stairs into your workout, or use a treadmill with varying incline capability (consult your doctor before  undertaking any new fitness program). Please contact us if you have any doubts regarding your physical match with this tour
