bhutan trek and tour

Western Bhutan

The six districts - Thimphu, Paro, Haa, Wangdue Phodrang, Punakha and Gasa forms the western part of Bhutan. The predominant ethnic group in Western Bhutan is Ngalops. They are generally followers of the Kagyu tradition of Buddhism. They tend to be taller than people in other parts of the country. A distinctive feature of Western Bhutan is that the cities and towns are built besides rivers in wide valleys. Tourism Council of Bhutan has classified new ways of exploring the existing great sights in this part of the country. In this part one may attend the summer festival of Haa and delve into the wonders of a living culture. The festival highlights Shamanic rituals and other folk dances.

  • 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.
