Your chance to
Witness spectacular Bhutanese festivals
At a glance
9 nights hotels with en suite facilities and 2 nights full-service camping sleeping on camp beds in two-person tents
Gentle Himalayan hiking
The secretive mountain kingdom of Bhutan is one of the world’s great off-the-beaten-path destinations with its mountain-top temples, towering peaks and unique culture. As well as seeing the country’s highlights, we head to central Bhutan where we meander through meadows, Blue pine forests and bamboo groves, stopping in villages and meeting welcoming locals. We then witness the masked dances and other festivities of one of Bhutan’s less visited festivals (Domkhar in May and Jambay Lakhang in November). Note that different departures follow different itineraries.

Interesting facts
Culinary tour in India, finger-licking!

If you are a foodie (cmon, which one of us is not? hehe), making a cuisine tour in India is a must for you! When you think about India, I bet exotic is the first word that pops up in your head. Exotica is the very essence of this country with India being truly unique in every possible aspect: culture, traditions, lifestyle and, of course, cuisine! When it comes to traditional Indian food, it can be worth exciting and intimidating. Spices are a must in almost every dish but mind the quantity of them used in every of them. Sometimes a dish is seasoned with spices so generously, that you feel like capable of drinking the entire Indian Ocean. In this blog, we will cover some of the most popular cuisine tours in India that will not make your stomach turn :)
