  • The captial Thimphu is charming and serene, a delight to explore.
  • The opportunity to explore the rural lifestyle and architecture of Bhutan via the beautiful Punakha and Haa Valleys
The Bhutan: Dragon Kingdom trip starts in Thimphu and ends in Paro. It is a walking trip that takes 9 days taking you through Thimphu, Punakha and Paro in Bhutan. Bhutan: Dragon Kingdom is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation in hotels, transport, meals and others.

Bhutan is perhaps the most mysterious and diverse of all the Himalayan kingdoms, where for centuries a traditional Buddhist culture has thrived in isolation from the rest of the world. It is a country that puts its people and environment first – a place where progress is measured in gross national happiness not GDP, and that’s not just carbon neutral, but carbon negative. It’s a place of lush forested valleys, fortified monasteries, sacred mountains, and art and architecture unique to the region. This journey begins in Paro and heads straight to Thimphu, where there are two days to discover the history and heritage of this charming and serene capital. Walk in the countryside and back in time with visits to the beautiful Punakha and Haa Valleys. Here the rural lifestyle and architecture of Bhutan is explored before returning to Paro. Finish with a true highlight – the spectacular Taktsang (the Tiger’s Nest), a small monastery clinging to a rocky cliff 900 metres above the valley floor. A journey through the astonishing beauty of the people, landscape and culture of Bhutan will have your happiness levels off the scale.

“Wonderful trip/cruise along the coast of Croatia, which is a must-visit. I thought Croatia's infrastructure was behind before visiting but was surprised as to how developed the nation is.

The duration, timings etc. was appropriate and our guide was great!”
