Magical Bhutan Tour

Venture into a world that will touch your heart and soul – a land of myths, legends and traditions which are as vital and alive today as when they originated.

Thickly forested valleys, snow-capped mountains, colorful prayer flags fluttering in the breeze, maroon robed monks and architecture from another age. This is Magical Bhutan Tour 5 Days, a kingdom that has long maintained its independence and isolation from the outside world and so preserved a fascinating Himalayan culture and tradition.
