NOMADIC EXPEDITIONS

bhutan-02 BHUTAN Mountains & Prayers Surround You LET'S PLAN YOUR JOURNEY

THE LAND
OF SERENITY

Mountains and prayers surround you in this majestic ancient kingdom. Largely closed to travel until the 1960s, the centuries-old culture of the Bhutanese is as pristinely preserved as the sacred mountains forbidden from climbing, lest their spirits be disturbed.

Buddhist faith intertwines with life here, with monasteries and chortens dotting the landscape of spectacular valleys, and prayer flags fluttering in the alpine air along steep passes. Traced through by the bygone Silk Road connecting the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia, Bhutan bestows incredible gems for those seeking connection with the historical past.

Nomadic Expeditions provides decades of expertise and exclusive local guides to unlock the peerless adventures, both cultural and active, in this gentle place growing increasingly renowned for its exceptional trekking among the Himalaya.

Visit the enchanting Punakha Dzong built at the mesmerizing confluence of the Po Chu (Father) and Mo Chu (Mother) rivers. Witness the thrilling mask dances performed annually at festivities in temples and monasteries. Trek mountain and valley, sleeping beneath dazzling starfield, rewarded upon every step by breathtaking scenery. Hike the 2,000 feet to the iconic “Tiger’s Nest” monastery perched atop a sheer granite cliff and experience the site of one of the 13 tiger’s nests in historical Tibet where Guru Rinpoche, considered the Second Buddha, once taught.

Delve into this real-world Shangri La and forge a lifelong connection with Bhutan’s glorious scenery and benevolently inviting people.
