Bhutan has long stood out from other travel destinations as a country that has remained largely culturally intact. It’s well-known for being a Buddhist Kingdom, its unique and immediately recognisable national attire, its imposing dzongs and its monasteries, and the absolute love its people have for spicy food. There is cultural homogeneity in many elements, but perhaps less obvious is the fact that there is also plenty of diversity. On tour with us, you can learn about the Bon religion and its practises that predated Buddhism in the country. You can witness the dramatic changes in landscapes that have inspired enduring folk tales, the telling of which have served not only as entertainment, but until very recently have also even had an impact on what crops are cultivated in certain areas. Bhutan’s forests and jungles and micro-climates have allowed for a staggering level of biodiversity in both flora and fauna, and it draws birdwatchers and butterfly experts alike. It's difficult to express in words what the “real Bhutan” is: is it in the bustling streets of Thimphu, or in remote Sakten? Is it woven into textiles in Bumthang with skilled hands, or floating in songs sung by famed singers in Trongsa? Obviously it’s not represented in any single one of these things alone, but must be experienced and shown.
