Festivals of Bhutan

From £2849 for 11 days
Trip Overview

Hidden away in a corner of the Himalaya, the secretive kingdom of Bhutan is an unforgettable destination with ancient traditions, spectacular mountain scenery and vibrant festivals. At these hundreds of people gather to see the monks, dressed in brightly coloured robes, perform ritual dances. For several days there are masked dances and prayer meetings, and a general carnival atmosphere prevails. The spring departure visits the Paro festival, whilst the autumn departure takes in the Thimpu festival. The December departure visits the lesser-known Trongsa festival, which is smaller and offers a more intimate experience.
