bhutan trek and tour

Central Bhutan

The two districts of Trongsa and Bumthang forms the Central Bhutan. This region is separated from the Western part of Bhutan by the Black Mountains. This region has inimitable attractions and is home to many sacred monuments of the country. It is also known for its buckwheat and apple production and its sturdy stone houses. The broad valleys and sloping mountains in this region serves as the perfect place for walking.

Central Bhutan defined much of Bhutan's history. Till the early 1950's it was the seat of power for two Kings. The watch tower, Ta Dzong, with its dominating four towers has been turned into the National Museum.

The Wangdue Choling palace in Chamkhar, built by the 1st King Ugyen Wangchuck is also open for tourists to visit. You may also attend the Nomads festival of Bumthang and delve into the wonders of a living culture of the nomads and play a part in the Matsutake festival of Ura and savor the high altitude mushroom. You can also enjoy numerous festivals including the annual tshechu of Trongsa and Bumthang, the Jampa Lhakhang tshechu, or witness the Ura tshechu that is unique. You may also visit

The Thrumshingla National Park forests range from alpine to sub-tropical broadleaf types. Trek across the park and try to distinguish the six species of globally threatened birds – the Rufous necked hornbill, Rufous-throated wren-babbler, Satyr Tragopan, Beautiful nuthatch, Ward's trogon and Chestnut-breasted partridge. Or try and spot the Red Panda or the foot prints of the Royal Bengal Tiger.

  • We appreciated this local Travel Agency, because of friendly and experienced Staffs, who are working in it. They always tried to do their best, to make everything perfect, on what you agreed before beginning of the trip. This is important for clients, who decide to travel in Asia, because experienced tourists know, that it's not always like this here. I hope, they will remain the same, when their company will grow up.
