    Why Embark on a Bhutan Tour?

    Untouched and mysterious - a Bhutan trip still has the charm of the unknown. The kingdom in the Himalayas did not open its borders to tourists until 1974 and still offers plenty of room for discovery. Through the long isolation and focus on gentle quality tourism since its opening, Bhutanese culture and natural beauty have been preserved unspoiled.

    The small country in South Asia borders on India and Tibet in China and impresses with its scenic diversity and cultural characteristics. Visit the Buddhist monastery Taktshang, the cities of Paro and Thimphu and experience nature in national parks such as the Royal Manas National Park. Less

    Where to Go on a Bhutan Vacation?

    Clock Slope

    The Taktshang or Tiger Nest Monastery, is the most famous sight in Bhutan. Monks still live in the Buddhist monastery today. What makes the monastery so famous is its location high up on a rocky slope. To get to the Taktshang, you have to go up to 10,200 feet. For this purpose, the ascent in Paro is 2300 feet. It is worth to start the ascent early, then the temperatures are more pleasant. After the ascent you will be rewarded with the view of the Paro valley. Attached to the monastery there are some caves that can be visited.

    Thimphu

    The capital Thimphu is a good starting point for a round trip of Bhutan because of its proximity to the airport. Just outside the city is the Dechencholing Palace, which was once the official residence of the royal family and is an impressive excursion destination.

    Buddha Dordenma

    The Buddha Dordenma in the Kuenselphodrang Nature Park near Thimphu is definitely worth a visit. The golden Buddha figure is one of the largest sitting Buddhas in the world. And even more: From here you have a great view over the city of Thimphu.

    Phobjikha Valley

    The Phobjikha Valley is the perfect destination for nature lovers. The almost untouched valley is famous for the black-necked crane, which hibernates here from October to February. Mountains surround the valley from all sides, an ideal hiking area that is well worth exploring. Less
