Bhutan, Land of the Thunder Dragon, is a true living kingdom full of high mountain vistas, welcoming people, and colorful festivals. Experience the best of both worlds, delving into one of Bhutan’s largest and most intoxicating festivals and then immersing yourself in the spectacular natural beauty on several day hikes. Take part in the swirling excitement of the Thimphu Tsechu, an annual celebration of the Guru Rimpoche, featuring masked Cham dances and bustling marketplaces. Celebrate this joyous event with the Bhutanese people in a nation that values gross national happiness over profit and be one of only a few visitors to take part in this unique honor. Wander up to the impressive dzongs of the region, explore the iconic Tiger’s Nest monastery and have the option to stay the night with a local family.
