TOUR IN ETHEREAL BHUTAN - THE LAST SHANGRI LA

This 6-night holiday trip takes you to the heart of the ethereal kingdom of Bhutan. From the gravity-defying Tiger’s Nest monastery to the temple of the Divine Madman, this trip, like other packages, combines spectacular drives, unique nature walks, and fascinating monastery visits. Journey deep into the Kingdom’s heartland exploring three distinctly different but important valleys: the bustling capital of Thimphu in a valley dotted with monuments, museums and markets; the almost tropical Punakha Valley with its magnificent dzongs; and the emerald valley of Paro with its rice paddy fields and ancient temples.
