Bhutan Cultural Tours

Discover the Land of the Thunder Dragon

Bhutan Travel Bureau’s range of Bhutan cultural tours are designed to bring clients into close contact with an unspoiled land that is home to a vibrant Buddhist way of life, and as close in spirit to Shambala – or paradise – as an earth bound kingdom can be.

Our popular Bhutan tours cover the valleys of Thimphu, Paro, Punakha, Wangduephodrang, Gangtey Phobjikha, Trongsa, Bumthang and Trashigang. In these townships you can really discover the spirit of the Bhutanese, as well as visit numerous sacred sites, Dzongs, temples, landmarks, monasteries, markets, farmhouses, schools & museums. All our tour programs are flexible and can be easily tailored to suit.

Guests have the option of staying in either our range of carefully selected, government approved tourist class hotels and lodges, or upgrade (additional costs) to superior, luxury hotels and resorts. Further upgrade options including specialised transport can be utilised as part of our range of luxury tours. Visit Ultimate Bhutan, The Cloud Kingdom and The Last Shangri-La to view sample itineraries of luxury tours that we can customise.

To enhance your Bhutan cultural tour why not consider a specialised activity including cycling, photography, camping and walking as featured on our Specialty Tours page, or a unique Bhutan festival tour or one of our many Value-Added Options to provide an more in-depth experience of Bhutanese culture.

BTB – Guest Comments

“I just completed a week in Bhutan with your agency and with Tshultrim as our guide and I wanted to take a minute to let you know what a fantastic job he did.  Not only was his knowledge of the country and the sites we visited fantastic, but he blended in with our group and joked with us and really became one of us.  I cannot imagine having a better guide and experience…”

 “We would like to thank you so much for making it possible for us to spend such an interesting time at Dodaydrick Monastery. It was a highly inspiring experience and we really enjoyed interacting and talking to your brother, your cousin and to the principal of the monastery. We very much appreciated to having the opportunity to meditate at that wonderful and holy place…”

“The consensus of our recent trip was “IT WAS FABULOUS”! An outstanding cultural experience. We came away feeling we had had a privileged experience in Bhutan that most other travelers may never have known. The Festivals, particularly the last one in Chuhume was great. Without all the tourists and a more natural setting, we were able to appreciate the whole experience…”

Norma Sears, USA

“Our entire experience with BTB was one of exceptional service! From trip planning to arrival and throughout our trip – the Laya Trek & Bumthang Festivals – BTB staff and guide were very personable and professional. While there are numerous agencies offering itineraries in Bhutan, the difference is the individual attention BTB gives their clients and I highly recommend…”
