Short and Sweet Cultural Tour

  • Culture and traditions in Bhutan play very important roles in preserving the status of the pristine environment. Bhutan’s unique cultural and traditional values, highly valued in them by all the populations, are also essential embodiments of the nation’s identity. For a small country located between the two most populated countries of the world and with no military might or economic strength, the preservation and promotion of its distinct cultural identity is seen as an independent and sovereign kingdom. It was this identity that has protected and sustained Bhutan and also provided the foundation for its major policies. On this tour you will be visiting cultural sites, and the highlight of the tour is the Taktsang monasterly also known as "Tiger's nest". You will experience the unique traditions and culture and life style of the now modern Bhutan. This trip will take you right from Paro to Thimput which is the capital of Bhutan.
