This is a special tour for those who want to understand the diversity of Bhutan! Where most people go half way across the country only to Bumthang, you will travel from Paro in the west, all the way across the country to Mongar and Trashigang in the east. Along the way you can stay in small hotels, visit monasteries and holy sites, spend time in local hospitals, visit schools and libraries, explore markets, and meet with the artisans and local people. You end this journey by driving out into India and flying on to Delhi from Guwahati.
This spring, you will be in Bhutan for the exotic Gomphukora Festival in Trashigang.
