Bhutan Tour Reviews

Our trip to Bhutan in April 2024, was a great success. Our guide, Kinzang and his crew looked after our group of 4 very well. The campsites are spacious and equipment excellent, even a hot water bottle at night when needed. During our walk we only saw 2 other trekkers. The Bhutanese people are very friendly. The scenery is stunning, with its snow covered mountains, many colourful flowering rhododendrons and the architecture very unique, especially the Dzongs. The hot springs to soak in was a real treat at the end of our trek.

Bhutan is a hiker’s paradise, perhaps best known for its dramatic landscapes, steep cliffs and Himalayan peaks. Sometimes referred to as ‘the last great Himalayan kingdom’, the country maintains a mysterious, sacred history that you simply won’t find anywhere else, even in its neighbouring countries. Enriched with Buddhist culture, Bhutan is great for travellers looking to take a mindful holiday with a spiritual connection. Unique cultural experiences abound in Bhutan, from incredible monasteries to dozens of year-round festivals.

Tour Highlights

  • Trek to Taktshang Goemba (Tiger’s Nest Monastery), an impressive 7,000 feet above sea level
  • Attend Thimphu Tshechu, a three-day festival starting the 10th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar
  • Visit Punakha Dzong, the crowning place of Bhutan’s kings
  • Snap a photo of a Takin, Bhutan’s national animal
  • Cross the iron chain bridge at Tachog Lhakhang

 

Travel Tips

  • Don’t expect to do much swimming on your visit to Bhutan. The country of Bhutan is completely landlocked, and its lakes are considered sacred.
  • Be courteous and respectful when visiting monasteries, temples and other religious places. Be sure to remove your shoes and hat before entering. Many of these sites also forbid photography, so never take photos without first asking permission.
  • No, you’re not seeing things - those certainly are paintings of penises you see everywhere in Bhutan. These paintings are meant to dispel evil and act as a protection against malice. They’re also meant to encourage fertility and were originally encouraged by Drukpa Kunley, or the “Madman from Kyishodruk”, Bhutan’s fertility saint.
  • The Bhutanese love spicy food. Red and green chilis can be found in nearly every local dish. In fact, the national dish, ema datse, not only contains chillies, it is also served with dried chillies on top!
  • If you come across the royal family during your trip to Bhutan (which is likely to happen, given the country’s small population of about 800,000 people), do not take their photo without permission. Be sure to show respect as the Bhutanese truly love their monarchy.
