This short Bhutan tour includes the major cultural highlights of amazing Bhutan. Ideal as a touring Bhutan Family Holiday too. After exploring the sights of the Paro Valley you’ll head to the Bhutanese capital, Thimpu and then head over a spectacular mountain pass road to the lush Punakha Valley to see the iconic Punkaha Dzong. Overland journeys are broken up with interesting stop offs along the way to visit lesser known, but very atmospheric places of cultural interest and spiritual significance. Some places can only be visited on foot, but the walking can be optional although the walks are invariably not prolonged and should be within the capabilities of the leisure walker. This suggested itinerary also includes a visit to the once “off limits”, scenic Haa Valley to experience a little bit of Bhutan that could be considered “off the beaten track”. As well as all the principle sites of cultural significance this unhurried Bhutan culture tour will also allow you to experience both the rural nature of Bhutan, as well as its beautiful scenery too.
