Bhutan is popularly known as the Land of Thunder Dragon. Also known as The Last Shangrila, it is a discreet nation located deep inside the Himalayas of South Asia. It is also one of the few nations in the world to have preserved the practice of monarchy. It boasts rich Buddhist architecture, pristine lakes, scenic forested valleys and admirable lifestyle.
The short tour of Bhutan primarily focuses on bringing out the best of both the geographical and cultural riches of the nation. Paro, Punakha and Thimpu are the major tourist destinations in Bhutan. These places are rich in architectural relics, ethnic lifestyle, authentic diners and scenic destinations.
This trip facilitates briefly touring the three major cities of Bhutan. You will drive around most of the destinations. Masked dances and dance dramas are common traditional features at festivals, usually accompanied by traditional music. If you are lucky, you may get to witness the iconic Chaam dance, where the performer dons a hugemask depicting the God and dance in the traditional music.
An overland tour doesn’t require any physical or mental exertion, therefore, this trip is basically easier and can be done by anyone.

I would like to thank Gautam and Caravan Outdoors for the most amazing holiday. I traveled with two other people and can honestly say we all feel that this was a holiday of a life time.
