This active 17 day tour starts in Paro where you have a chance to see the impressive dzong before climbing up to Tigers Nest Monastery as part of your trek preparation. From Paro you then follow the Druk Path Trek which is one of Bhutan’s signature treks and which will afford some amazing views of the Himalayas before you reach Thimphu. After time to explore the Bhutanese capital head west to Punakha and then on to Bumthang, the ‘spiritual heartland’ of Bhutan, where you can discover ancient monasteries and temples. Before returning to Paro you will visit the scenic Phobjikha Valley where you can witness a traditional, rural way of life that has changed little in centuries.
