Experience Bhutan and its people by meeting families, seeing a variety of festivals, staying in small hotels and sampling regional foods. Travel routes in Bhutan may be somewhat limited, but what you do in the country is as broad as your imagination.
This special trip includes an exciting fall festival. Perhaps you can learn to make butter tea, Hontay, vegetable dumplings; Mengay, (a sort of Bhutanese Pizza, made from mashed rice, eggs, spring onions, mushrooms and other ingredients; or a chilly dish.
Traveling Bhutan as far west as Bumthang, you will meet monks and farmers, explore giant dzongs and small gompas and truly get a special ‘taste’ of the culture of this country!
