Bhutan – the land of happy people to cross from west to east is a special journey. You start your journey by visiting the most important cultural sites in Kathmandu and fly on to Bhutan from there.
The ascent through a fairytale forest to the legendary Taktshang monastery, the “Tiger’s Nest”, is one of the most beautiful highlights of this tour. When crossing the Dochu-La Pass you have a spectacular view of the fantastic mountains of the Himalayas. On a clear day, you can see the 7000s mountain range that separates Bhutan from Tibet. The imposing 17th-century Punakha Dzong is picturesquely situated at the confluence of the two rivers Pho and Mo and reveals the fantastic handicrafts of Bhutan.
The untouched nature creates a unique flora and fauna in Bhutan, which you can marvel at on smaller hikes. In winter, dreamy sites are the refuge of the rare black-necked crane. Your journey continues over high passes and valleys, past mighty dzongs and monasteries.
In East Bhutan, the land of the thunder dragon, you come into contact with a very important part of the kingdom. They experience a genuine culture that is unique in its architecture, clothing and religion. They meet the indigenous people who still have their own language in the remote valleys. The landscape in the east is rougher, steeper and pristine than the rest of Bhutan.
