Land of the Thunder Dragon

Known locally as ‘Druk Yul’ meaning ‘Land of the Thunder Dragon,’ Bhutan is full of surprises. With your local guide, journey through blue pine forests, terraced fields bursting with red rice and chilies, and valleys dotted with dzongs (forts) and small temples.  Climb up towards Paro Taktsang - Tiger’s Nest monastery - clinging to the cliff edge overlooking the upper Paro valley and marvel at the Himalayan panoramas. Stay in peaceful, hospitable villages and enjoy the traditional way of life in this beautiful land. These are experiences that will reveal to you the authentic rural heart of Bhutan.

Joyful Tours

One of the smallest countries in the world, Bhutan is largely untouched by the modern world, guided by the principles of Gross Domestic Happiness and strong Buddhist values rather than material wealth. There is great pride in sustainable tourism and there is a strict entry policy. We are working in partnership with Joyful Tours, a local Bhutanese specialist which shares our commitment to responsible tourism in the country's villages. Their expert team takes care of you every step of the way.
