Bhutan Traverse Tour West to East or East to West

Exciting Traverse across Bhutan attending festival along the way

Bhutan Traverse Tour West to East or East to West Trip Map, Route Map
Trip highlights
Overland Tour across Bhutan incorporating local festivals.

Bhutan Traverse Tour from west to east or eastern to western Bhutan is extremely exciting journey passing from idyllic west to old fashioned charms of  far east through gamut of vegetation, which also gives a fascinating insight into its ever changing landscapes and lesser-known eastern quarter before crossing over the southern border into India.

Combine the colours of the Western and Central Valleys with the wilderness of Bhutan’s un-spoilt forests and the lush tangle of its tropical jungle. You will be surprised at the diversity of its vegetation in such a seemingly tiny Kingdom. The only aspects of the journey which never change are the friendliness of the people and the awe-inspiring views, which delight at every twist and turn of the road.

Our odyssey across this emerald jewel of the Kingdom begins in the West, through towns of Paro, Thimphu and Punakha. Then journey through the cultural heartland of Bumthang. Savor the distinct corners of the country as you slowly travel further and further back in time. Work your way to the Eastern-most outpost of the Kingdom and exit into India via beautiful and rarely visited Assam.* All small group journeys are scheduled to visit at least one festival, allowing you the unique opportunity to experience lively festivities that attract thousands of villagers from afar and near. There are some exciting short walks, most of which are optional.

P.S. Almost always the tour starts in West, but some Bhutan Traverse tours also start in the east and ends in the west (mentioned in the Detailed Trip brochure), in order to fit with the festival or for favorable weather conditions (eastern part  is warmer and lower).
