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.
The kingdom of Bhutan remains one of the last unspoiled gems of the Himalaya. Closed to foreign visitors until the 1970s, Bhutan has an amazingly preserved traditional Buddhist culture uniquely blended with modern sensibilities. On your five-day journey, you'll visit monasteries, fortresses, and enjoy stunning views as you hike through the mountains.
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.
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.
Thanks to restrictions on independent travel, the idea of exploring Bhutan carries an air of exclusivity. Add some of these gorgeous luxury resorts into your itinerary and you'll feel every bit as royal as Jetsun Pema, Queen of Bhutan, while traveling around this beautiful Himalayan kingdom.
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.

My wife and I took our trip to the incredible treasure of a country, Bhutan, a bit over a year ago now. That it took me a year to write a review is entirely a reflection on myself and not at all 9n our gracious and accommodating hosts and guides.
Vishal and Sonam, our tour organizers, we're incredible from the initial contact about considering the trip, all the way through to leaving for home.
