The Bhutan Dragon Kingdom trip starts from and ends in Paro. It is a trekking tour that takes 11 days taking you through Simkotra, Thimphu, Jimilang Tsho and 3 other destinations in Bhutan. Bhutan Dragon Kingdom is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Follow the ancient Druk Path through the extraordinary Kingdom of Bhutan. We combine an exceptional trek with time to explore the cultural heritage of Bhutan. In the company of our local guides we follow trails that lead high above the Paro and Thimphu valleys to gain unrivalled views of the Himalayan peaks that define the borderlands of Bhutan and Tibet. There is also ample opportunity to delight in the pristine forests of conifer, oak and rhododendrons as well as encountering yak herders as they establish their summer encampments. In Paro and Thimphu we wander the markets and appreciate the location of the monasteries and forts that reflect the deep cultural heritage of this remarkable Buddhist kingdom.
