Bhutan

Bhutan or Druk Yul, the 'Land of the Thunder Dragon', is a small country in the Himalayas, located between Tibet and India. Bhutan has stunning natural scenery, and a strong sense of culture, tradition and spirituality. It is also the world's last Mahayana Buddhist kingdom. All tourists coming to The Kingdom of Bhutan must travel on a pre-organized all inclusive guided tour through both International and Bhutanese local tour operators. The basic rate is fixed by the government.

 

REASONS TO GO

The amazing Buddhist festivals.

The impressive ruins of Drukgyel Dzong and the Taktsang Monastery in Paro.

The breathtaking landscape over the Himalayas.

 

BEST TIME TO VISIT

The best time to visit Buthan is from October to May. If you are planning to go trekking, avoid the months from November to February due to the excess of snow in the trails.

 

HOW TO GET THERE

Paro is Bhutan's only airport, located in a deep valley and surrounded by high mountains.

The airport transfers to Paro (20 minutes) and Thimphu (1 hour) are all organised by the Tour Operators or the hotels.
