Places to visit in Bhutan

Dzong Monastery, Punakha
The remote Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan is proudly independent, with strongly established traditions and deep-rooted religious beliefs. Our specialists have explored the country many times and can put together a detailed tailor-made itinerary for Bhutan to suit your interests. We’ll suggest what to see in Bhutan, from well-known chortens (shrines) to little-visited rural communities.

From Paro in the west you can visit the Tiger’s Nest Monastery, which precipitously sits atop a shelf on a cliff-face above Paro Valley. Explore the capital Thimphu’s markets and crisply painted chorten. Head east across the Dochu La pass to the green vales of Punakha to reach the 17th-century Punakha Dzong. The arrival of migratory black-necked cranes is celebrated each winter in the rural communities of Phobjikha Valley, while Bumthang Valley shelters royal shrines and celebrated temples. Cross the Thrumshingla Pass to the east and you find minority villages with traditional animalist beliefs.
