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.

Surprisingly enough, when it comes to the most popular destinations for travelling, Bolivia is not a country on the list. Well, your loss. There are a few negative factors which keep on pushing the tourist away from the country, such as a lack of public transport and the necessity to get visa, which might set you back 150$ dollars. However, I dare say that the astounding scenery awaiting you will make amends for all inconveniences. The combination of high-rise mountains, jungles filled with wild life and the unfathomable variety of within a single country is what makes Bolivia so unique and irresistible to visit. Here are the top things not to miss out on.
