Solo Travel Destination Bhutan: This small Himalayan kingdom has for years been overshadowed by neighboring Nepal. Mt. Everest has for a century drawn adventure travelers. In more recent years, its neighbor Bhutan has become more often a destination for adventure travelers.
Mountain Travel Sobek’s expert guides lead this tour of Bhutan. They benefit from decades of leading global tours. Their specialty? Active tours, especially hiking abroad. As a result, travelers get to see terrain and sights not part of more traditional urban tours.
In Bhutan with its 23,000+ foot tall mountain peaks, you will be one step closer to heaven!
This 9 day odyssey led by Mountain Travel Sobek experts will acquaint you with Bhutan’s rich culture and colorful festivals. Among the latter will be the Tsechu religious festival, where elaborately costumed dancers perform masked dance-dramas. You will mingle with the locals at this festive celebration, a unique honor as only a limited number of visitors are allowed to do so each year.
From the tranquil Punakha Valley to the bustling towns of Paro, Thimpu and Punakha, this Himalayan kingdom will provide you with memories of a lifetime.
