THE BEST WAY TO DISCOVER HAPPINESSThese tours don't go as high as the treks, and they finish at a hotel every night. So even those of you who may be worried about altitude can safely experience them.
Exploring Bhutan on foot is a complete pleasure. The serenity and sheer beauty of the landscape makes for peaceful, inspiring walking. The destination for most walks in Bhutan is a temple, fortress, monastery or nunnery, some many centuries old, in incredible locations. Once inside you begin to grasp the deeply spiritual side of this extraordinary country: golden statues, colourful silk hangings, ornate and highly detailed paintings, butter lamps and symbolic mandalas. Even the wood of the floorboards is beautiful, as it has grown silky from use over the years. All of our walking tours finish with a visit to the most iconic temple of them all, the wonderful Tiger’s Nest, situated on a cliff high above the Paro valley. We also take you to Thimphu, one of the smallest capital cities in the world and to Punakha, the seat of government until half a century ago and home to the most beautiful dzong or fortress, stunningly situated on the confluence of two rivers. You will encounter some steep gradients at times, as you would expect in the Himalayas but the climbs are well worth the effort.
