Introduction

Bhutan is a gem house of Buddhist art, culture and literature. Being the only country in the world to preserve the Tantric form of Mahayana Buddhism as its authoritative religion, the Bhutanese people have immense faith in their creed and permeate all kinds of ethical and sociological well being in their day-to-day life.

We have carefully crafted a 5 days trip to Bhutan that showcases the magnificent temples, fortresses and cultural attractions that the tiny nation boasts about. All our trips include opportunities to walk through the countryside and experience Bhutan at the forefront level.

The Mystic inspirations on this tour that we can experience are the snow-clad mountains, transcendent monasteries and ancient dzongs. The tour combines informative guided sightings to ancient and traditional sites of Paro, Thimphu and Punakha.
