Kingdom of Bhutan

Kingdom of Bhutan

Experience the mysterious mountain kingdom of Bhutan with Peregrine Adventures’ Dragon Kingdom trip.

Bhutan is perhaps the most mysterious and diverse of all the Himalayan kingdoms, where for centuries a traditional Buddhist culture has thrived in isolation from the rest of the world. It is a country that puts its people and environment first – a place where progress is measured in gross national happiness not GDP. It’s a place of lush forested valleys, fortified monasteries, sacred mountains and art and architecture unique to the region.

The journey begins in Paro and heads straight to Thimphu, where there are two days to discover the history and heritage of this charming and serene capital. Travellers can walk in the countryside and back in time with visits to the beautiful Punakha and Haa Valleys. Here the rural lifestyle and architecture of Bhutan is explored before returning to Paro.

The trip finishes with a true highlight – the spectacular Taktsang (the Tiger’s Nest), a small monastery clinging to a rocky cliff 900 metres above the valley floor. A journey through the astonishing beauty of the people, landscape and culture of Bhutan is sure to leave traveller’s  happiness levels off the scale.

The 9 day trip is priced from $5,990 per person.
