Overview

Bhutan, a lightly populated country in Southeast Asia, is nestled in the Himalayan foothills, providing the ideal location for preserving its unique culture. The Bhutanese people’s culture is integrated into every aspect of their lives, as may be witnessed during cultural excursions in Bhutan. Vajrayana Buddhism underpins Bhutanese culture and traditions.

Bhutanese festivals take place throughout the year. There are numerous festivals dedicated to the honor of Guru Padmasambhava and the spread of Tantric Buddhism. Festivals in Bhutan bring together a social gathering of individuals dressed up to celebrate. Thimphu, Paro, Punakha, Wangdue, and Bumthang host the most popular pageant events. Festivals feature ancient mask dancing, with most of the dances having spiritual significance. These dances are associated with the gods and goddesses of Buddhism’s teaching. It believes that their dance’s power and blessing will bring peace and happiness to all calamities and city administrations.

Bhutan’s cultural tour will provide insights into the country’s people, culture, traditions, religion, and nature. These tours will take you through some of the most beautiful scenery in the world, including majestic mountain ranges and lush green valleys. The architectural splendors of the Dzongs, monasteries and traditional Bhutanese dwellings will be seen as some fascinating religious festivities. You’ll also have the chance to sample Bhutanese cuisine and meet its welcoming people.

Bhutan Tour– Best Time

Bhutan, like the rest of the planet, is a small country. It does, however, provide a variety of cultural trips, adventurous activities, and scenic views. Its best season is from March to May and September to December.

Spring and fall are the best times to visit the country. Spring starts in February and lasts until mid-May when the entire countryside is a rich green and alive with wildflowers in full bloom, particularly rhododendrons, locally known as the metho, of which Bhutan has forty-six different types. Every April, the Lamperi Botanical Park, near Thimphu, hosts a three-day Rhododendron Festival to honor the blossoms in their natural habitat. September sees the end of the monsoon’s heavy rains, ushering in the pleasant season of fall, with clear skies and sunny days. We must submit your visa application to the Bhutanese government at least one week before your travel. When you arrive in Paro, you will be handed a paper visa that will be stamped on your passport. For the visa application, we’ll require a clear scan copy of your ticket.

Bhutan: Festivals

Traveling during the festival season is a fantastic way to immerse yourself in Bhutanese culture and history. Bhutanese people have been fasting and enjoying holidays for millennia. Nepal Mother House has created a special vacation package focusing on the most well-known festivals in the country, including the Paro, Thimphu, Punakha, Ura, and Bumthang Drup festivals. Most visitors plan to visit Bhutan around significant festivals, which means that the country will be crowded. Nepal Mother House advises that you plan your travel at least six months ahead of time if you wish to attend one of Bhutan’s most famous festivals. It is preferable to attend less regularly attended festivals to avoid crowds.

There are also newer themed community festivals in Bhutan, which encourage tourists to visit at different times of the year and see Bhutanese traditions performed.

Detail Itinerary

Day 1: Fly from Kathmandu to Paro and sightseeing

Your six nights seven days on Bhutan Cultural Tour begin with a short and gorgeous flight from Kathmandu to Paro, just like other multi-day Bhutan trips. This flight is an excellent alternative to a mountain flight in Nepal in clear weather since you can see Mount Everest and Lhotse from a new perspective.

The National Museum will be the first stop on your tour, which was once a watchtower for Rimpung Dzong. It has a great view of Paro, and the Dzong is said to have been built in 1645 A.D.

You will now ride from Paro to Thimpu, Bhutan’s capital city, along a mountain road. It’s time to explore the National Library after touring the memorial Chorten constructed in remembrance of the third king.

Overnight in Thimpu!

Day 2: Thimpu sightseeing

After having a wonderful breakfast, you will have a full day of sightseeing, including visits to the Memorial Chorten (stupa), Bhutan’s most impressive stupa, which was built in 1974 by Grand Queen Mother Ashi Phuntsho Choden in memory of the Third King of Bhutan; National Library, which houses a vast collection of , manuscripts, ancient Buddhist texts and modern academic books; Handicrafts Emporiums, which displays a wide range of beautifully woven fabrics for men and women, crafted products, and other decor Painting School, famed for traditional thangka paintings, which you can buy if you like them; Institute of Traditional Medicine, where Tashichhodzong prepares the kingdom’s rich herbal medicines. Dinner and an overnight stay in Thimphu are included.

Today we will get up early and go to Trongsa, which is located in the center region of Bhutan and is about a 4–5-hour drive. After checking into the accommodation (Fortress), visit Ta Dzong (Museum) and Trongsa Dzong (Museum).

We were staying at the hotel for dinner and the night in Trongsa.

Day 06Paro (Day hike to Tiger's Nest)

Today you have a difficult climb and a horseback ride to Tiger’s Nest, which will take you around 3 hours. Another awe-inspiring location is Taktshang, which translates to “Tiger’s Air,” a Buddhist Monastery built on a rocky cliff. After lunch, you will visit Ta Dzong, which was built in 1646 by Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyel and once served as the watchtower for Paro Dzong; Drukgyel Dzong, which was built in 1647 by Zhabdrung to celebrate the victory over Tibetan invaders in 1644 and is now in ruins; and Kyichu Lhakhang, one of Bhutan’s most sacred temples, which was built in 636 AD by The Crowned Buddha (Jowo) and Padma sambhava are both housed here.

FAQ

How do I obtain a Bhutan visa?

We will assist you with visa applications. We must submit your visa application to the Bhutanese government at least one week before your travel. When you arrive in Paro, you will be handed a paper visa, which will be stamped on your passport. For the visa application, we’ll require a clear scan copy of your ticket.

Can I travel independently in Bhutan?

No! You won’t be able to enter Bhutan unless you’ve planned a land trip with a licensed and approved tour operator and paid the required nightly all-inclusive government tariff. Bhutan’s government discourages independent tourists in order to preserve the country’s strict culture and natural importance. During the trip, however, you have a lot of freedom to visit local markets and towns and engage with the locals as you like. You can plan your own private tour without having to join a larger group; however, it must be pre-paid and pre-arranged.

In Bhutan, what kind of weather should I expect?

Bhutan, like Nepal and many other countries throughout the world, is undergoing climate change. Summer is hot, humid, and rainy from June until mid-September. Winter is cold and dry (December to early March). The nights are out in the winter, but the days are clear and sunny. The western valleys receive barely two snowfalls per year on average. The wettest months are August and early September.
