Be immersed in awe-inspiring scenery and the Buddhist way of life on an inspirational trip through Bhutan. Discover the spectacular Himalayan settings of Paro and Thimphu valleys with a private driver and guide, combining cultural sights, spiritual experiences and breathtaking scenery on a journey that can be tailored entirely to your preferences, in advance or on the ground
Experience breathtaking views of the Himalayan peaks on the spectacular descent into the Buddhist kingdom of Bhutan. Begin your spiritual journey at Changangkha Lhakang, a 12th-century temple in the Thimphu valley: meditate in the altar room and take part in the symbolic lighting of 108 butter lamps, before returning to Amankora's Thimphu lodge for a traditional cultural performance or a lecture on Buddhism at the library.
Join locals in their daily worship before embarking on the incredible journey through the Himalayan landscape to Paro. Join the nuns at Zilukha for dawn prayer, circle the Memorial Chorten with locals and explore Thimphu's cultural sights and shops, before taking the dramatic drive to Amankora's Paro lodge, stopping en route at Dra Karpo, one of Bhutan's holiest temples. In Paro, visit the National Museum, the fortress of Paro Dzong and Dungtse Lhakang
After sunrise meditation at Amankora, trek to Tiger's Nest, the legendary cliff-top monastery that rewards hikers with life-affirming views at its summit. The descent brings the promise of a visit to the Kingdom of Bhutan's oldest temple, Kyichu Lhakhang, and a lecture, traditional cultural performance or prayer flag printing in the evening at the lodge.
