Route 11 daagse Groepsrondreis Festivals of Bhutan

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, Dechenphu or Genekha Festivals. The December departure visits the lesser-known Trongsa festival, which is smaller and offers a more intimate experience.Please note: This itinerary is valid for departures starting in Kathmandu on 28th September 2022 (Thimphu Festival), 26th March 2023 (Paro Festival) and 17th September 2023 (Thimphu Festival).Please refer to alternative trip notes found HERE for departures starting in Kathmandu on 3rd April 2023 (Paro Festival) and 22nd September 2023 (Thimphu Festival).
