Hidden away in a corner of the Himalaya, the secretive kingdom of Bhutan is an unforgettable destination with ancient traditions, spectacular mountain scenery and vibrant festivals. At these hundreds of people gather to see the monks, dressed in brightly coloured robes, perform ritual dances. For several days there are masked dances and prayer meetings, and a general carnival atmosphere prevails. The spring departures visit Paro Festival, whilst the autumn departures take in Thimphu Festival.



Please note: This itinerary is valid for departures starting in Kathmandu on 22 September 2023 and 11 September 2024 attending Thimphu Festival.



Please refer to the alternative Paro Festival itinerary for departures starting in Kathmandu on 14 March 2024.
