Bhutan, Druk Yul, the Land of the Dragon, is the most isolated and exotic land in the Himalayas. We offer the best group and individual guided eco- travel throughout Bhutan, and our trips operate almost year-round. In Bhutan, standards of dress, architecture, food, and education are ruled by ancient tradition. You can travel for days through Bhutan's uninhabited pine forests or follow the paths of ancient warrior monks who have repelled invaders from the north. You may visit an ancient Bhutanese monastery where helmets, shields, bows, and spears still hang ready for action.
Journeys local Bhutanese guides possess full knowledge of travel and logistic requirements to arrange a very special trek, cultural expedition or festival-focused ecotour. Until recently, accommodation choices were very limited in Bhutan, but new hotels and the option of staying in local homes afford new options. Ask about special permits to visit Bhutan's restricted areas.
Trips to Bhutan can be combined easily with travel to Nepal, Tibet, India, and our destinations in Southeast Asia. The best time to visit Bhutan is from September- November and March to May.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Recently, Druk Air has made it possible to book flights in and out of Paro via their website. We recommend that when booking the land with Journeys, you also allow us to handle your Druk Air flights. This allows us to quickly handle problems with connections or cancellations or any other issues that may occur. Journeys will not be responsible for problems with flights not booked through us.
