Bhutan, thought of as the last Shangri-La on the planet, is one destination that provides for an experience like no other. In the name of preserving its rich heritage and culture, the Bhutanese government only allows for limited numbers of tourist access into the nation. This makes travelling to Bhutan an almost exclusive experience. Located in the Himalayas, visitors to Bhutan enjoy front row views of the highest peaks in the world, the Himalayan Mountains.

Explore the cultural heritage of Bhutan on this private tour. Discover the hidden treasures of Bhutan, such as the Tigers Nest Monastery, and meet its friendly people. Be wowed by the magnificent Himalayan peaks that surround these land locked countries and enjoy the breathtaking views.
