Tour Overview

This tour is an introduction to everything that is Bhutan. It provides an overview of Bhutan’s culture and is ideal for a first time visitor. As a prelude to the cultural richness of Bhutan, you will get to meet common people for first-hand experience of rural livelihoods and will also get to stay in countryside cabins and have a taste of the farmer’s idyllic rural life.
