Trip Details

Bhutan Tour Overview


Bhutan, the Land of the Thunder Dragon, is a tiny Himalayan kingdom that still restricts the number of travelers it allows inside its borders each year. A travel agency is required for all visitors going to Bhutan. In this mysterious nation, you won't find backpackers. Drukair/Bhutan Air offers flights to Bhutan from Kathmandu. There are many monasteries to visit because Bhutan is a Buddhist nation. The wearing of the national dress is required of all Bhutanese citizens, and it is illegal to buy or sell tobacco products in public places.
Bhutan Tour Package

This Himalayan kingdom conducts operations differently. Bhutan has welcomed visitors for 45 years while putting its environment, culture, and well-being ahead of business interests. Trekkers, wildlife lovers, and Buddhist pilgrims will all appreciate a trip to Bhutan. From the mind-blowing Tiger's Nest (Paro's Taktsang monastery) to the prayer halls of Gangte Gompa, you'll come across moments - and people - that make happiness feel like the norm, not a goal.

The Tiger's Nest, which is actually a monastery constructed on solid rock, is one of the most significant sites to see on a cultural tour of Bhutan. Some of the fascinating events to keep an eye out for in the nation include masked dances and archery festivals. Bhutan is attempting to strike a balance between tradition and modernity, allowing for the limitations on the number of tourists who are permitted to travel there.

Best Time To Travel Bhutan


The ideal times to visit Nepal and Bhutan are in the spring (March to May), autumn (September to November), and early winter (December). Days during these months are the perfect temperature—neither too hot nor too cold. In Autumn and the beginning of Winter, it could be a little chilly in the mornings and evenings.
