The enchanting Kingdom of Bhutan is rated among the happiest countries in the world. It’s no wonder! This earthly nirvana is filled with beauty at every turn, from lush river valleys, whitewashed homes, and terraced rice paddies, to fields covered pink and yellow rhododendrons and majestic, snowcapped peaks of the Himalayas. In fact, we were instantly enamored with Bhutan when we first pioneered trekking here in the 1980s. Everything from its ancient monasteries and temples to its tea houses and folk art was steeped in timeless tradition, and we felt a warmth that has kept us coming back for over 30 years! You may say it’s our happy place.
Today, we run four very special group trips to Bhutan as well as a private Bhutan experience and popular Himalayan Passages trip (combining Bhutan, Tibet and Nepal). Although one visit to Bhutan will create memories for a lifetime, many people feel a strong urge to return.
