In this extraordinary journey to the East, you'll experience the vibrant color, dynamic culture, and spiritual heart of this remote mountain kingdom. With its traditional lifestyle largely intact, it's no surprise that Bhutan is considered "a living museum," where traditional clothing, spinning prayer wheels, and a gentle tranquility are features of daily life. Visit monasteries and villages, view magnificent Buddhist art and architecture, and witness the unique harmony between the Bhutanese and the natural world.

Highlights of our trip include excursions to the Bumthang Valley, the spiritual heart of the kingdom, and to Taktsang, one of the most dramatic and venerated pilgrimage destinations in the Himalayan region.
