Australian tour operator Travel on Q, has just released its 2015 Inspirational Bhutan tour in conjunction with Walking Matilda. Travel dates: 28 Mar – 12 Apr 2015.
The tour is fully escorted from Australia by Peter Kellett, owner of Walking Matilda and a well-known walking guide.
On arrival the group is joined by a local English speaking guide and private transportation.
The two-week trip is a combination of cultural sightseeing with day walks and a fully supported 3 night walk in the Haa Valley.
Participants will immerse themselves in the traditional lifestyle and rich customs of this ancient Buddhist nation, a land of stunning landscapes virtually untouched by human hand, and wonder at the impossibly located Dzongs (monasteries) that dominate the valleys.
A highlight of the tour is the Paro Tshechu, one of many festivals that cement the fabric of Bhutanese culture and faith; a week long celebration of storytelling through dances with fabulous costumes and accompanied by horns and cymbals.
Accommodation is in comfortable A class lodges and hotels and this small group tour is inclusive of guides, sightseeing, transport and all meals in Bhutan.
