Bhutan Dragon Tour

Here in the 'Land of the Thunder Dragon,' quality of life is measured in terms of Gross National Happiness, rather than purely material measures - though Bhutanese live comfortable, serene lives. Until quite recently this tiny country remained in splendid isolation, dedicated to preserving its deep Buddhist traditions and pristine landscapes. Now, a small number of guests each year are invited to discover Bhutan's natural and cultural wonders. On this Dragon festival tour, you will attend two colorful festivals on both the spring and autumn trips. The spring trip visits Talo festival, a small festival held on a hilltop village above Punakha, and an elaborate Tsechu festival in Paro, one of the largest in the country. Similarly, the autumn trip attends large Thimphu Tsechu festival in the capital of Bhutan, along with small rural festival in Bhumthang valley. Wind Horse has done the autumn trip for over six continuous years with small modifications. This amazing journey among ancient monasteries and temples, Himalayan peaks and glacial rivers, rare wildlife and extraordinary people.
