Beautiful Bhutan

Backyard Travel, specialists in insider tours through Asia, has announced a new itinerary that will allow intrepid travellers to explore the magical Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan. Over eight days, the Bhutanese Adventure itinerary will showcase the country’s beauty and spirituality with visits through preserved dzong fortresses, remote villages, and the mountains of the Himalayas.

The eight-day itinerary begins in Bhutan’s capital, Thimpu, where travellers will see the city’s key cultural landmarks while gaining insight into the country’s unique brand of Buddhism and their royal family. En route to the village of Gangtey, travellers will encounter centuries-old fortresses and the majestic Himalayas. A highlight of the trip is the three-day trek through flower fields and forests that culminates with a hike to the top of the Shobju-la Pass, where visitors can bask in sweeping views over the Himalayas. Recuperate in Wangduephodrang and the picturesque Punakha Valley before exploring Bhutan’s oldest temples and monasteries in Paro.

To celebrate the launch of the Bhutanese Adventure tour, Backyard Travel is offering a 10 percent discount on every tour booked to Bhutan before the end of April 2015. www.backyardtravel.com
