About This Tour

Bhutan is a remote place of remarkable natural beauty with a pristine and intact environment and a friendly, tradition-bound people. For the discerning international traveler who has been everywhere, Bhutan may just be the final frontier. This tiny kingdom, barely the size of Switzerland, zealously sequestered itself from the rest of the world for centuries. It only opened the doors to limited tourism in 1974.

Travel to Bhutan is really an exploration of traditions and a culture that has been preserved through the centuries. In Bhutan we are not going to see some display or cultural park that has been created for tourists. Rather, we will be sharing a true life experience with the Bhutanese. This tour involves some hiking and travels to several new locations that we haven’t seen on previous tours. Come with us through a doorway to a world unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before.
