  • FEATURES

    Bhutan is no ordinary place. This land-locked nation is one of the most remote and pristine environments on Earth. With over 60% of the land being unspoiled wilderness, you can immerse in natural beauty to purify your mind. Descending from 7,000-metre-high peaks in the north to the low-lying plains of the south, its rivers have forged deep valleys separated by high mountains passes.

    Historically isolated, each valley's topography and scenic beauty affords you an opportunity for unique journeys of discover. Peaceful monasteries, impressive fortresses (or dzongs), jagged Himalayan mountains and deep valleys are all part of this fascinating journey through the Buddhist kingdom on the Himalayas' eastern edge.

    Bhutanese Women in Traditional Dress

    Bhutan, the Land of the Thunder Dragon, has successfully preserved much of its ancient culture and reputation for being the happiest country in the world. Travel to Bhutan to discover its secret to happiness.

    Tiger's Nest: Paro Taktsang monastery (also known as Tiger's Nest) clings impossibly to a sheer cliff face at 3,120 metres (10,240 ft) above the sea level, about 900 metres (3,000 ft) above the forested Paro Valley. This temple is a prominent Himalayan Buddhist sacred site in the kingdom, and Bhutan's most iconic landmark and religious site.

    Bhutan Trekking Tiger's Nest

    Druk Path Trek: This most popular trek in Bhutan, leading from Paro valley to Thimphu valley, passes through magnificent natural landscapes, from blue pine forests to yak herders, from high ridges to pristine remote alpine lakes. This wonderfully scenic high-altitude walk boasts views of Bhutanese Himalayas as well as wandering through some ancient lhakhangs, dzongs and villages.

  • Weather and Climate

    Bhutan has four distinct seasons. Bhutan can be enjoyed in any season.

    Spring & Autumn Seasons (Mar - May, Sep - Nov)
    The weather is ideal in spring and autumn. Generally, it's clear and mild weather with excellent scenery, lower rainfall and a range of festivals called Tshechus and Dromchoes. Himalayan views are best in October, while rhododendron blooms peak in March and April. However, they are peak season for tourist visitors and you can expect some congestion at major tourist sights.

    Winter Season (Dec - Feb)
    The weather is still pleasant, though it can be cold and temperatures fall below zero at night in December and January. During those months, it has snow to the higher regions however the southern regions and main valleys where visitors generally travel are considerably warmer. Paro and Thimphu normally experience only light dusting's of snow. Cool weather and clear skies is a great time for photography and valley hiking plus the opportunity for wonderful Himalayan vistas.

    Summer Season (Jun - Aug)
    Monsoon rains. High-altitude flowers are at their peak. Early-mid summer period June to July is good time to visit as there are less tourists.
