Bhutan Spiritual Tour - 5 Days
Our spiritual tour to Bhutan also involves a little bit of adventure as we get to hike up to the Tango and Cheri Monasteries that take about an hour and a half. On reaching our destination you will instantly sense the vibrant spiritual energy of the monastery. Here you get to interact with the local monks who will bestow blessing upon you.
Bhutan or the “Land of the Peaceful Dragon” is a country of sprawling forests, venerated monasteries, overpowering fortresses; lush green valley’s fed by bountiful rivers and age-old practices. Cultivated fields surrounded by pitched roof houses with their typical trefoil-shape windows and Dzongs (fortresses) dominate the scenery with their sheer size. Its people are hardworking, vibrantly attired and deeply religious while the land is immaculate. Bhutan’s alpine pastures, peaks, forests, lakes and flowers make it a paradise. Maybe that is why the rare black-necked crane makes its way across the Himalayas to Bhutan every year.
Visit the many ancient Dzongs, Monasteries, fortresses and chortens, throughout the trip.
Stop by the Heritage Museum, Traditional Arts & Crafts School, and the National Institute of Traditional Medicine.
Shop at the largest weekend domestic market in Bhutan, a most favoured spot.
Walk to “Tiger’s Nest” Taktsang Monastery, the most famous and an unofficial symbol of Bhutan, perched on the side of a vertical cliff at 3000 m.
