Grandeur of western Bhutan is a unique experience any month of the year, but especially during winter, when you can have Bhutan to yourself. From November to February days are clear with intensely blue sky, bright sunshine melts the nighttime frost and by 9 o’ clock in the morning the nippy chill is out of the air, and a pleasant winter day arrives. Bhutan promises to charm you with an unspoiled ancient landscape and quietly challenges your view of the world all year round, and the following itinerary is but an introduction into the Kingdom of the Clouds and can be customized per your wishes.
Bhutan’s architecture is the best remaining example of an ancient living architecture – from the mighty ancient fortresses to the humble farm house – the stunning and strategic locations of the grand fortresses housing both monks and civil administrations.
