When is the best time to visit?
October to December offer clear skies, warmer weather, and is most travelers preferred time to explore Bhutan.
Where to go in Bhutan?
Don’t expect to get by on a backpacker budget in Bhutan. It’s seemingly one of the most expensive places to travel thanks to a mandatory tariff of $250 a day (in U.S. dollars) for foreign visitors. Prospective travelers shouldn’t panic, however, since this fee covers accommodation, food, transport and an official guide. With these expenses paid upfront, visitors can tour the impressive dzongs and monasteries, the forest-draped hills and canyons, and take in the local tsechus, or dance festivals without worrying about pinching pennies.
How many days do I need?
Seven days is the ideal amount of time to travel through Bhutan.
From the famous Tiger's Nest Monastery to the sleepy streets of Paro, visiting Bhutan is all about the simple pleasures of natural beauty and a distinctly preserved culture. Experience this long-isolated country's stunning mountains, colorful architecture, and lush countryside on this comprehensive 10-day tour.
When it comes to trekking, Bhutan offers both beauty and variety. The kingdom is home to some of the most challenging high-altitude treks in the world, as well as countless easy rambles through the wilderness. Whether you're an experienced hiker or a novice, there's a multi-day trek in Bhutan to fit your needs.
Trek through an area adorned with a multitude of pristine, crystal clear lakes, and Bhutanese villages. As you walk, you’ll be treated to stunning views of the entire Himalayan mountain range and some of the world’s highest peaks - including Mt. Everest, Jomolhari, Masang Gang, and many more.
You don't need to have a lot of time in Bhutan, nor an exceptional level of fitness, to experience some of the best hikes in the kingdom. This selection of the best day hikes offers something for every interest and ability, from quick and easy downhill rambles to steep uphill climbs and passes.
Take in the best Bhutan has to offer, from culture to mountain scenery. Visit the impressive dzongs of Thimphu and Punakha, see the real Bhutanese countryside, and set off on day hikes before embarking on the arduous 7-day Jomolhari camping trek. Soak in the world of stunning snow-capped mountains, takins, Himalayan vultures, and even encounter the elusive snow leopard.

jumolhari round trek and cultural tour - 17 days, Bhutan - Jun 3 - Jun 14, 2018
Wow where to even start. Our time in Bhutan was so incredible we are still dreaming about it, and it would not have been the same without the amazing care from Vishal and Sonam.
They put in so much attention to customize the perfect trip for your needs. (They even know which room in the hotel has the best views!) Vishal and Sonam will go out of their way to ensure your stay in Bhutan is comfortable.
Our guide, Tek, was very accommodating. My boyfriend and I were doing our first multi-day... read more
Trip to bhutan, Bhutan - May 1 - May 6, 2018
Bhutan has a special place in my heart, not least due to the superb, seamless organisational efforts of Vishal and Sonam at Trophel Tours, and the excellent, informative and gracious care of our "walking encyclopaedia" guide UT. Pre-trip communications built an impression of courteous, lovely people who know their country intricately, and I felt in capable hands before we even set foot in beautiful Bhutan. Such a relief to have all the administrative intricacies of permits and visas dealt... read more
Bhutan, Bhutan - May 13 - May 31, 2018
Overall, the trip was fantastic and I am truly grateful that you suggested India before Bhutan. However, the hotel in Delhi was superb. They upgraded us to a fabulous room the the 2nd and 3rd times that we were there which was lovely. Our guides in India were fine. I do have a couple of suggestions....I think we could have done with 1 night in Rathombore. We saw 1 tiger on all our safaris, although others saw many more...just lucky. We really liked Jaipur and maybe should have had 2 nights... read more
