Bhutan Tour

Bhutan at a Glance tour is perhaps the shortest and most entertaining Bhutan tour. The tour allows you to learn the culture and history of this dragon kingdom. You will visit Thimphu, the capital of Bhutan and Paro to explore its many attractions. 
 
Tatksang Monastery or Tiger’s Nest Monastery is perhaps the most important of them all. It was here that Guru Rimpoche landed on a flying tigress in 7th century. You will also visit Kichu Lhakhang which was erected by Tibetan King Songsten Gampo along with 15th century Changangkha monastery and Memorial Chorten. 
 
This tour is feasible throughout the year as daily flights operate between Nepal and Bhutan by Bhutanese airlines. Nepal Environmental Treks & Expedition handles all your travel arrangements from getting tourist visa for Bhutan to coordinating with local tour guides.
