The Journey

Maybe you have some secret yearning to raft a Himalayan river or hike to a ridge studded with fluttering prayer flags or just sit in a quiet monastery and let the stillness overwhelm you. Or, perhaps you'd like to spend some nights camping under the stars listening to the cicadas in the dense pine forest.

 

Many people come to Bhutan wanting to share experiences with the Bhutanese people. We make that happen by extending an invitation to sleep at a lovely Bhutanese farmhouse not on the tourist circuit. Or, attend a feeding ritual to propitiate malevolent spirits. Or, join in the Zangcho Monlam, the greatest food offering of the year where thousands of monks and nuns say prayers for world peace.

 

• Is your focus on learning? Bhutan is filled with experts who would love to share their knowledge with people who are curious about their culture.

 

• Meet an expert in your field, whether is medicine, law, education, or government, for example.

 

• Or, have a weaving lesson with an eastern Bhutanese master using a backstrap loom.

 

• Or, spend an hour with an art preservationist to learn how ancient paintings and thangkas are being preserved.

 

• Or, meet with a geologist to hear about the effects of global warming on this Himalayan country.

 

• Or, find out about the history of food in Bhutan from an expert who literally wrote the book on ­the subject.

 

• Or, meet with young entrepreneurs in Bhutan. Many of them were unemployed and founded companies with help from humanitarian agencies.

 

• Meet with a musicologist or a dance master who will talk about the complex meanings of festival choreography.

 

Within this personalized program, you have a choice of what to see and do based on your ambitions for the trip.
