Our range of suggested Bhutan cultural tours are designed to bring you into close contact with an unspoiled land that is home to a vibrant Buddhist way of life, and as close in spirit to ‘Shambala’ – or paradise – as an earth bound kingdom can be.
The mysterious mountain kingdom of Bhutan was isolated from the rest of the world until very recently, preserving its rich culture and traditions. It is a deeply devout country steeped in the ancient traditions of Mahayana Buddhism. Dzongs, monasteries and temples are at the heart of every town and village while prayer flags flutter from chortens or the tops of hills. People still predominantly wear traditional garb, with men in a kimono style Gho, and women in an ankle-length dress called a Kira. Our tours are designed to bring clients into close contact with this unspoiled land and its vibrant Buddhist way of life. Tours visit numerous sacred sites: dzongs, temples, landmarks, monasteries, markets, farmhouses, schools and museums. Specialty programs include photography, biking, bird watching, festival and pilgrimage tours.
