Rich Buddhist Culture & Sacred Himalayan Peaks

Nothing can prepare you for Bhutan. It possesses an indescribable magic. Temples built at the impossible heights of the Himalaya. A culture rooted in history and yet changing with the times. It's not Shangri-La—it's more real than that, balancing the modern with the ancient. It's what you've pictured and what you couldn't have imagined.

What's Included

Straight Talk

We want to make sure you're on the trip that's right for you. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.

Accommodations

This trip includes two nights at the beautiful Dhensa Boutique Resort, a Casual Plus Hotel. We've chosen it because of its proximity to our favorite routes, its friendly hospitality, strong cultural character and the tremendous view from the deck. 

Some hotels and restaurants we visit see few Western travelers and therefore lack many Western-style services. The leisurely service found in neighborhood restaurants and the limited supply of beer can all be appreciated as part of the journey.

Traveling in Bhutan

Bhutan is a remote corner of the world where ancient culture, traditions and religion are still the deep-rooted cornerstones of everyday life. That said, modern Bhutan is not always the Shangri-La depicted in glossy travel magazines. Rather, it's a developing country, where the scenes of poverty, trash and pollution can be jarring.  And yet, the beauty of the people, the culture and the landscape shine through. Our itineraries and Trip Leaders remove as many obstacles and inconveniences as possible, but we can't remove haze and noise from the air, or replace a poorly maintained road or trail—it's all part of the experience here!

Commercial Flight Schedules

This trip includes travel on a commercial flight so that we can explore the best of your destination. Please note that flight schedules can change with little advance warning, which may require us to adjust our activities on a travel day. Your Trip Leaders will provide more details on any changes should this occur.
