Experience Bhutan and its people by meeting families, seeing a variety of festivals, staying in small hotels, rafting the rivers, enjoying traditions such as hot stone baths, and sampling regional foods.

This special trip includes the Punakha Serda in the spring and the Jambay and Prakar Tsechu in the fall. In addition, you can explore Bhutan by touring a local school for arts and crafts just outside Thimphu, take time to meet with local people, and experience many other very unique adventures.
