Open to tourists only since 1991, Bhutan is one of the countries that tries to preserve its culture and environment as best as possible. Hidden in the heart of the mountains of the eastern Himalayas, let us be the pioneers of this extraordinary country.
You will enter the Dragon Kingdom at Samdrup Jongkhar, between the Indian plains and the Bhutanese hills. A winding road with magnificent glances through the eastern hills will take you to the eastern region of Trashigang where you can discover several ancient sites.
Crossing the country from east to west, you will discover the monastery of Dramitse and then arrive in the region of Bumthang, the spiritual heart of the “Kingdom of the Dragon”, bathed in religious and popular legends.
These high valleys were among the first in the country to receive the teaching of Buddhism which was introduced here in the 8th century by Guru Rimpoche. Nowhere else will you see so many temples, monasteries and sacred places.
After visiting Trongsa, where the royal lineage originates, you will go for a walk in the beautiful Phobjika valley where the cranes with black collarcome to hibernate.
You will then arrive in the subtropical valley of Punakha, the winter seat of the Bhutanese clergy and its leader, the Je Khempo. The visit to Thimphu, capital of the Kingdom, will be followed by the discovery of the traditional Valley of Haa, before concluding in the enchanting Paro Valley with the excursion to the famous temples of Taktsang, the Tiger’s Lair, clinging to a cliff Dizzying.
