Additional Information

Hidden away in a corner of the Himalaya, the secretive kingdom of Bhutan is an unforgettable destination with ancient traditions, spectacular mountain scenery and vibrant festivals. At these hundreds of people gather to see the monks, dressed in brightly coloured robes, perform ritual dances. For several days there are masked dances and prayer meetings, and a general carnival atmosphere prevails. The spring departures visit Paro Festival, whilst the autumn departures take in Thimpu, Dechenphu or Genekha Festivals. The December departure visits the lesser-known Trongsa festival, which is smaller and offers a more intimate experience. *Please note:* This itinerary is valid for departures starting in Kathmandu on 28 March 2020 (Paro Festival), 19 September 2020 (Thimphu Festival) and 19 October 2020 (Dechenphu or Genekha Festival).  Please refer to https://www.exodus.co.uk/tripnotes/aib/20301" target="_blank">alternative trip notes found HERE for departures starting in Kathmandu on 5 April 2020 (Paro Festival), and 25th September 2020 (Thimpu Festival). For Trongsa Festival departures starting in Kathmandu on 31st December 2019 and 9th December 2020 please refer to these https://www.exodus.co.uk/tripnotes/aib/20302" target="_blank"> alternative trip notes found HERE.
