This trip commemorates the spirit of Bhutan, the magnificence of its old ways, where you go back in time on a comprehensive cultural odyssey, for a glimpse of traditions and customs fast disappearing from the rest of the Himalayan world. Gigantic mountains covered with thick primeval forests, the generous and welcoming attitude of its unassuming people who have not rejected their spiritual heritage for modern ways; all makes for a unique cultural experience.

As you visit the country’s impressive whitewashed Dzongs (fortress-monasteries) that are thriving centers of worship and culture, and meet the people as you travel through the countryside, you’ll see how the past remains an integral part of the very vibrant present. One of the highlight is the Tsechu, a religious festival, an exuberant and earthy affair featuring fancifully costumed dancers performing masked dance-dramas before hundreds of onlookers. Mingling with the locals in this joyous celebration, a highlight of their social calendar – is a unique honor, bestowed to only a limited number of visitors each year.
