Bhutan East West Traverse presents an all-encompassing journey across Bhutan, capturing the essence of its nature, landscapes, and cultural richness through a comprehensive exploration.

Commencing from eastern Bhutan, you’re instantly transported to the lesser-visited, secluded portion of the country. Here, a world of remote villages and authentic connections with genuine individuals awaits. Gradually progressing westward, you’ll journey through the renowned central and western regions of Bhutan. These areas are celebrated for their breathtaking valleys, captivating landscapes, and iconic monuments.

The Bhutan East-West Traverse tour offers an immensely exciting journey that encapsulates the very essence of Bhutan. From its remote villages and nomadic lifestyles to encounters with local craftsmen, women weavers, visits to sacred sites, and exploration of iconic monuments, this journey immerses you deeply in the heart of Bhutan’s cultural tapestry.

Embarking from the plains of Assam, the tour navigates through foothills, sub-tropical jungles, and transitions into temperate and subalpine regions before descending into temperate valleys. Throughout this adventure, you’ll engage in an array of experiences, from delving into village life to witnessing vibrant festivals or impromptu local celebrations. You’ll observe traditional sports like archery, sample diverse local cuisines, and actively participate in the mutual exchange of learning and sharing personal stories.
