Summary

Cradled in the folds of the Himalayas, Bhutan is an isolated kingdom with a unique cultural heritage which dates directly back to the mid-17th century, closely bound with the Buddhist religion. It is only in the last few decades that foreigners have been allowed to visit and the country remains unspoilt by commercial tourism. The scenery is spell-binding, with deep, wooded valleys rising to towering snow-capped peaks and villages and monasteries that cling precariously to the hillsides.

Our tour is centred around the Jambay Lhakhang Festival, a remarkable event with colourful ritual dances. In addition to this our itinerary includes excursions and gentle hikes which take us to the most scenic areas and the best of the attractions, including the remarkable Tiger’s Nest Monastery.

We also take the opportunity to spend a couple of days in Kathmandu in Nepal on the outward journey, a chance to become acclimatized to the altitude here in the Himalayas.

The tour will be led by Julia Corden, formerly of the Explorer’s Garden in Pitlochry, an experienced traveller in this region.

Tour highlights:

  • Enjoy the sights of Nepal’s capital Kathmandu as we acclimatize to life at altitude
  • Stunning views of the Himalayas (weather permitting) as we fly into Nepal
  • Exploring Thimphu, one of the world’s most unusual capital cities
  • All the sights and sounds of the Jambay Lhakhang Drup Festival
  • Peace and meditation at the incomparable Tiger’s Nest
