I’m very much looking forward to returning to Bhutan in Nov-Dec, 2020. I’ve put together a unique itinerary on behalf of the Australian Himalayan Foundation (AHF) that will take us into Bhutan overland via the eastern border in Assam, India. The 14-day trip is timed around annual festivals at the remote Trashigang and Mongar monasteries. We’ll also visit some of Bhutan’s more well-known destinations including the Bumthang Valley, the impressive dzongs (fort/monastery) at Jakar, Thimpu and Paro, Thimpu’s famous weekend market and the spectacular Takstang (Tiger’s Nest) monastery.
The tour cost includes accommodation, most meals, two internal flights, private transport and entry fees. Accommodation options are limited in the remote east, but elsewhere we’ve chosen places a step or two up from Bhutan’s standard lodges, which should also mean the meals are above average.
Fundraising: This trip was initiated by the Australian Himalayan Foundation (AHF, of which I’m an Ambassador) as a fundraiser to support the great work they do in the Himalaya. Consequently, we are seeking a minimum donation of A$1,000 per person, which can be fundraised or donated directly. Further details and contact info are in the trip notes. See the AHF website to learn about their work:
