Package Overview

The kingdom of Bhutan was first opened to tourism in 1974 and has retained far more of its traditional culture than most other countries. On our journey we visit a number of isolated valleys with their distinct cultures and ways of life. Part of this the presence of local dzongs or fortress monasteries, which also serve as administrative offices to this day. As we enter these dzongs we get a feeling of being back centuries in time as we see incredible tangka paintings, traditional Tibetan Buddhist paintings, and exquisite Bhutanese decorative designs, while meeting monks of all ages in their distinctive red robes. As we drive through Bhutan country side through beautiful valleys with Himalayan vegetation, rice paddies clinging to mountain sides, herds of cattle and yaks, and the wonderful Bhutanese architecture with brightly colored patterns and designs on them. Being a Tibetan Buddhist country where tantric beliefs abound the notion that sexual union is the source of power and protection we will see various phallic symbols and carvings on people's homes and shops, as well as stupas of all sizes and prayer flags flying at mountain passes. Most of all, we will meet the extremely friendly and gentle people of this wonderful land.Personal insurance Drinks and Beverages Tips and Gratitude Airfare Meals

    Pre trip, our communication with Boonserm was clear, professional and prompt. It took us a while to finalize our plans and the agency was patient, helpful and accommodating throughout. Once we arrived in Bhutan, our already high expectations were exceeded. We could not have asked for a better guide and driver for our 11 day tour as we were always well taken care of and at ease. We are a mother-daughter travel team with a 41 year age difference. Both of us has a magnificent experience of Bhutan. Thanks to Boonserm Tours & Travels. from Asheville, NC, USA
