The flavor of eastern bhutan
This Bhutan Cultural Tour takes you to the far eastern region of Bhutan. Discover ancient villages frozen in time with spectacular views and authentic Bhutanese architecture; fresh rivers flowing through and mountains gorges as we pass through various vegetation from subtropical to temperate. The best part of this trip is stopping by the Las (Pass, highest mountain point) and inhaling the fresh air on the highest points with magnificent views. In total we will be crossing six Las.
It will be an adventurous tour with winding roads and forests. When you reach the further eastern part of Bhutan, you will see the road fall in a long series of bends, through dark pine forests, wild green pastures, and a variety of fruit orchards, some gushing waterfalls all surrounded by the stunning blend of wildflowers and constantly changing vegetation. The journey brings you to the warmer, subtropical climate of the lower elevations of eastern Bhutan. While traveling through the six districts you can see the changes in the socio-cultural life of the Bhutanese people. You will also visit important historical and cultural places of interest in this Bhutan Cultural Tour.
