An Overview of Your Adventure


The wonder starts as you fly over the Himalayas, before arriving in Bhutan. The flight to Paro is spectacular, with sights like Mt. Everest, Mt. Kanchanjunga, Mt. Makalu and other peaks in Bhutan such as Mt. Chomolhari, Mt. Jichu Drakay, and Mt. Tsherimgang. Once you touch down at Thimphu, the only traffic-light-free capital city in the world, you’ll meet your guide who will kick off your adventure with stops at various nearby dzongs.
