Bhutan, though is a small sized country has a rich culture, traditions, life styles, with diverse ethnic groups, languages and belief systems. It is astounding that a country with a population of just over 0.6 million speaks as many as nineteen different dialects with Dzongkha as its national language. The Bhutanese socio-culture is well knitted and harmonized with the common thread of simple Buddhist values that serves as the guide to every day’s life.

Our cultural tours are the easiest way to relish the great Flora and Fauna, Culture and Etiquettes, People and Lifestyle and get the taste of real Bhutan. Driving around the winding and exciting roads, with comfortable nights in hotels, we will give you a tour of all the Places of Interest. Your guided tour will always be an awesome treat of Dzongs dating back to the 1600s, and many old temples and monasteries and architectural marvels. Wherever possible we can organize cultural shows for you to heighten your experience and letting you get a feel of the Bhutanese Festivity time.
