Bhutan is stuck in the Himalaya Mountains, between Tibet and India.
Bhutan’s landscape ranges from plains in the south to the Himalayan heights in the north, with some peaks exceeding 7,000 metres. It is one of the least frequented countries in the world, with an age-old culture and unique traditions.
The spectacular mountain scenery is impressive, a visit to the unique and authentic ‘Dzongs’ (convent fortresses) makes you feel small. Being involved in local celebrations makes you glow with happiness. Enjoy a butter tea with a Bhutanese family and get acquainted with a special way of life.
The beauty and splendour of the winter palace Dzong in Punakha will take your breath away. Immerse yourself in the ceremonies of the monks or enjoy a breathtaking adventure in the Village Lodge. Visit the colourful markets and mingle with the Bhutanese people. Be amazed by the Bhutanese kitchen, where red and green peppers are indispensable.
Of course a visit to the well known Tiger’s Nest should be part of your visit! A walk up there is a unique experience with the world-famous Takstang monastery at the finish line! Afterwards, a wonderfully relaxing massage is a must ….
