tour details

On this 10-day tour, visit many of the historically significant chortens and dzongs, some of which are architectural masterpieces or home to priceless relics across Bhutan. The highlight of this trip is experiencing the Thimphu Tshechu, one of Bhutan’s grandest festivals, which honours Guru Rimpoche, the saint who brought Buddhism to the country.
