Bhutan is a natural paradise. Even as the world is trying to heal itself from the scars of ecological damage, Bhutan is emerging as an example to the international community, with more than 72 percent of its land still under forest and a great variety of rare plant and wildlife species. It has now become an ideal destination for the more independent traveler.

We offer various customized and value – oriented tours to the independent traveler interested in exploring the grandeur and unique culture of Bhutan. We give the opportunity for you to undertake tours suited to your specific fields of interest allowing you far more detailed and informed access. Each tour is custom built around standard models. They will be in inpidual parties supported by a qualified guide and if required talks and lectures on any subject matter, the experts can be arranged.

Our tours will be supported by our framework of comfortable air conditioned vehicles and be based around quality accommodation.

We promise that you will experience the full impact of our country’s unique development philosophy of Gross National Happiness.
