Let us know what is on your mind and where you want to rejuvenate and regenerate.  Most of our 2020 tours and treks listed here have been revived for this year with slightly modified dates. We are working towards operating all our trips as possible

  • The best news first: As of now the kingdom is almost 100% vaccinated.  
  • Next best news. At the end of February 2022, the Kingdom of Bhutan has had a total of 11,100 cases with just 6 deaths so far.
  • Possibly good news:  According to the Tourism Council, the most likely date for re-opening is June 2022.  However, you can surely start planning your travel into Bhutan for any future dates without any financial or other commitments before the official tourism reopening is announced.

Currently flights into and out of the kingdom are operating on a reduced and limited schedules. See COVID Updates for the latest information.

 

In this section I have selected some of our Most Popular trips that we have to offer. These have been curated from my 40+ years of intense, friendly, and warm association with Bhutan and my personal association with the agency that sent the first western tourists to the Kingdom. If any of these tours do not fit you, your interests or your dates, please contact us for a personalized experience.
You can also browse the Festival Dates to build a specialized trip around your desired festival.

Easy Adventures are cultural explorations, in-depth tours which cover as much as possible geographically, culturally, and spiritually. There are countless things to see in the world’s last remaining Himalayan Kingdom. On our Easy Adventures, you will explore Bhutan’s beautiful landscape, its centuries old traditions and its unique way of life based on Himalayan Buddhist beliefs. You will learn about Bhutanese art and architecture, dance and music, handicrafts and folklore; you will get to meet local farmers and get to know some gentle, earthy and hospitable people. You will cross high passes in our deluxe four-wheel drive vehicles and ride a pony to stare up at the venerated Tiger’s Nest. You will gaze at awesome snow clad peaks and share in the festivities with local villagers at ancient dzongs. You will soak in a stone-bath and stop to take pictures of the rare golden langurs from the road-side. You will visit a weaver’s den and a farmer’s house. You will experience a culture and a land which remains the most unspoiled and most beautiful example of the Himalayan Buddhist way of life in existence today.

Walking Tours are cultural explorations for active people who enjoy lots of walking and day hikes, with nights spent in comfortable country inns and small hotels. Short hikes and walkings will take you over the ridges and into wonderful landscapes. It will allow you to visit monasteries or a village where there are no motorable roads. It will allow you to get to the top of hills for fantastic views of landscapes below with perhaps a silvery shining river snaking its way across the valley floor. It will allow you to quench your curiosities about what is on the other side of the hills; it will make it possible for you to get to the heart of the countryside and measure its pulse. Everywhere there are hikes and excursions to villages, to temples and to spectacular citadels of natural beauty where you can experience the kingdom in its fullest. These short walks and hikes will lead you away from the beaten path, and allow you to visit out of the way places reachable only on foot.

Trek Adventures are wondrous experience anywhere; in Bhutan it is unequalled. It offers you an opportunity that is already lost elsewhere.  More than 65% of the land is protected by law.  You walk in pure, pristine, wilderness — sometimes long and arduous. However, crystal clear air, lonely paths and views that defy descriptions complement them.  Experience the kingdom’s lush terrain and pristine forests, meet with yak herders and spot its unique wildlife such as takins and golden langurs, cross its awesome passes and gaze at its stunning peaks. In Bhutan it is still very likely that you will find no other trekkers on your trail. Trekking in the late April and May offer extra benefits of hundreds of species of exotic flowers in bloom.  All our trekking adventures can be combined with extensive sightseeing and cultural activities.
Learn more about Moderate Treks
Generally no more than 5 or 6 days in duration with a maximum altitude of 12,000 – 13,000ft, which is just below timberline. While no previous experience is required, you need to be in good physical shape and should enjoy hiking for most of the day and camping at night. It is for those who enjoy a weekend in the hills or mountains at home and are capable of roughing out a bit for 3-4days. Ideal for those with fewer days and looking for something a little more challenging, energetic and wanting to combine it with the kingdom’s cultural highlights.
Learn more about High Treks
Can be from 7 to 21 days in duration and reach altitudes of above 13,000ft.  Previous experience is necessary.  You are not only away from all forms of modernity, you are in true wilderness and villages are quite rare. There are no roads and even fewer trails. Starting with rhododendron forests at the foothills your trail will lead you through alpine meadows around snow peaked Himalayas opening into emerald green valleys with crystal clear lakes.  Awesome passes crossed can be as high as 15,000 – 18,000 feet. While no technical climbing skills are required, you need to be in exceptionally good physical condition and should enjoy strenuous hiking and camping overnights for extended periods.
Learn more about Glamping
Bhutan Travel’s Glamping (or Luxury Camping) is the best way to love and achieve contentment with pristine nature with some tone of modern comfort. Imagine your own luxury tents with comfortable plush, pillow-top beds inside them.  Then imagine that some elves set up these lovely tents for you in one of the most exquisite pine forests or at a fabulously scenic location.  Then imagine waking every morning to a cool breeze and chirping birds outside your canvas as if you’re roughing it— but not really. You woke up to a hot tea in bed inside your tent. You freshened up in the toilet and the bathroom tent. You enjoy hot cooked breakfast – not over a campfire, but in the kitchen tent prepared by our gourmet cooks and served by our staff. Experience pristine nature where you enjoy breathtaking landscapes for the day before returning back to your luxury camp perhaps to enjoy your evenings in traditional hot stone baths.
