Blissful Bhutan March 2018

We are organizing our signature trip to Bhutan in March 2018, after a highly successful trip in October. It is a fixed date departure (23 March - 01 April). During the trip, we will explore Bhutan together with others who are as keenly interested as us to find out what makes Bhutan the happiest place in the world!
We will experience culture, see all the sights, stay with a Bhutanese family, undertake mild hikes and trails, have a picnic lunch by a river, experiment with local food and drinks etc. We will also provide access to a special event held only in Paro during the festival which is a treat for photographers.
The trip includes tours to Thimphu, Punakha, Paro, Haa and Phobjika valley.


We lodge our guests in 3-4 star category hotels on twin sharing basis. They will have heating, hot water and provision for extra blankets. Wi-fi may or may not be available given weather conditions.


All breakfasts will be buffet style and lunches will be Bhutanese fare and buffets in most places. Dinner may be in-house in some places and in the town at others.


We will travel by an 18 seater Coaster Bus/10 seater Hiace (depends on group size) through the country. Since it is a mountain country, traveling time between two districts (say, Thimphu & Punakha) is quite high (we will cover about 25-30km per hour).

She will offer you diverse and deep perspectives on Bhutan, a country she has been visiting since 2012.
