Paro, Thimphu and Punakha Tour

Bhutan is an unique experience any month of the year, but especially during winter or mid-summer, when you can have Bhutan to yourself. From November to February days are clear with intensely blue sky, bright sunshine melts the nighttime frost and by 9 o' clock in the morning the nippy chill is out of the air, and a pleasant winter day arrives. In July and August it will rain intermittently but never consistently so as to spoil your trip. No matter when you will visit, Bhutan promises to charm you with an unspoiled ancient landscape and quietly challenges your view of the world all year round, and the following itinerary is but an introduction into the Kingdom of the Clouds and can be customized per your wishes.
