About this tour

Hidden away in a corner of the Himalaya, the secretive kingdom of Bhutan is an unforgettable destination with ancient traditions, spectacular mountain scenery and vibrant festivals. At these hundreds of people gather to see the monks, dressed in brightly coloured robes, perform ritual dances. For several days there are masked dances and prayer meetings, and a general carnival atmosphere prevails. The spring departures visit Paro Festival, whilst the autumn departures take in Thimphu, Dechenphu or Genekha Festivals. The December departure visits the lesser-known Trongsa festival, which is smaller and offers a more intimate experience.Please note: This itinerary is valid for departures starting in Kathmandu on 26th March 2023 (Paro Festival).Please refer to alternative trip notes for departures starting in Kathmandu on 22nd September 2023 and 10th September 2024 (Thimphu Festival).
