Discover the Beauty of Bhutan

This tour takes us to a land so enchanting that many have compared it to the fictional lost paradise of Shangri-La.

The door is now open, and we welcome you to join us for this unforgettable once-in-a-lifetime experience.

A 177-ft. tall Buddha statue. The Tashicho Dzong, the seat of the country’s government since 1952. The Royal Botanical Garden, Serbithang, a rescue center for rare and threatened native floral species. The high mountain pass of Dochula, at 10,000 feet.
