You will be journeying through to the cultural heartland of Bumthang and savoring the distinctiveness of each corner of the country as you slowly travel further and further back in time. In just over two weeks this trip takes us to the Western and Central Valleys where the wilderness of Bhutan’s un-spoilt forests and the lush tangle of its tropical jungles reign supreme and from there to the eastern quarter of the country and then across the border into India.

The diversity of the vegetation of Bhutan’s tropical forests will surprise you and many consider it a botanist’s heaven. The only aspects of the journey which never changes are the friendliness of the people and the awe-inspiring views. You will work your way to the eastern-most outpost of the Kingdom including the remote village of Trashiyangtse and exit into the beautiful and rarely visited area of India, Assam.

This cultural tour to Bhutan will give you an insight of the people, the culture, the traditions, religion and ecology of the country.
Our Bhutan east to west tour will take you through some of the most picturesque landscapes of the spectacular mountain ranges to the lush green valleys. You will see the unique architectural splendors of the Dzongs, monasteries and the traditional Bhutanese houses along with some intriguing religious festivals. You will also get the opportunity to taste the exotic Bhutanese cuisine and meet friendly people.

P.S
The trip also can be combined with Rajasthan of India (Taj Mahal, Jaipur, and Delhi) or with Tibet (Lhasa) Darjeeling, Sikkim or the Buddhist circuit tour like Lumbini, Boudhgaya, Kushinagar and Sarnath.
