Join Kutira on a 17-day exploration of Bhutan's best kept secret the Twin Jewels of the East. We will explore the Eastern and central part of Bhutan including a 4-day trek to where the Nomadic people live. Long closed to outsiders, the beautiful far flung regions of Merak and Sakteng present Bhutan travelers with the unique opportunity to see two of the least known valleys in the kingdom. Experience the stark wilderness and the simple generosity of the Brokpa people, learn how their traditional garb is still fashioned from yak skin and listen to timeless tales of the yeti which form an inseparable part of Brokpa lore. This journey into the hidden valley lets us discover the exquisite eastern wilderness of Bhutan. (For those who choose not to join for the trek may choose a special cultural immersion prepared separately.)
We will visit temples, including the famous Tiger’s Lair, monasteries, nunneries, dzongs (fortress), art projects, schools and Kutira’s special projects. The timing is perfect as we will have the great honor to partake on several famous dance festivals as we travel along. This will be a once in a lifetime experience that you don't want to miss. On this journey you will meet like-minded friends and explore the magical and mystical land of the Thunder Dragon and National Gross Happiness as we also get to sample delicious and diverse local cuisine from fine dining to family prepared traditional food. This is truly the last jewel of the Himalayas and if spirit is calling you, then you will be immersed in the beauty of Bhutan.
