BHUTAN

Descending into Buddhist Bhutan, one of the last untouched wilderness bastions of the world, is something very few people will do in this lifetime. To protect its rich cultural and environmental heritage, Bhutan remains in zealously guarded isolation and limits the number of tourists entering each year. Tiger Tops offer one cultural and one trekking tour into Bhutan. The eight day trekking itinerary offers a stunning four day trek between the Valleys of Thimpu and Paro. En route you have striking views of Cholmohari, Bhutan’s second highest peak at 7314 metres. Another day is spent exploring the capital, Thimpu, before moving onto the historic and fertile heartland of Paro. A visit to the famous Taktsang Monastery and surrounding gompas makes for a very spiritual journey into Bhutan.
