Central and Western Bhutan Tour is a very rich ancient cultural heritage with the Himalayas range of Bhutan. Western and Central Bhutan Tour offers a chance to experience the one-of-a-kind traditions and culture of the western and focal valleys of Bhutan. Western and central Bhutan is divided by the north-south running Black Mountain range. The western part of Bhutan is known for its spectacular scenic beauty; the area is filled with rice paddies and orchards. Western Bhutan also consists of high passes such as Cheli La (3988m), Dochu La (3050m), and Pele La (3300m), from where we get a spectacular view of the mountains. Likewise, Central Bhutan also has amazing natural beauty occupied by the miles of alpine and sub-tropical dense forests. It is popular for its buckwheat and apple production, strong stone houses, and beautiful monasteries.
Center and western Bhutan tours offer to take you around amazing monasteries, unique architecture, ancient traditions, rich colorful culture, and a wide variety of nature and wildlife. The main attractions of the tour include Rimpong Dzong, Ta Dzong Museum, Taktsang Monastery (Tiger’s Nest) in the wonderful Paro valley, 12th-century Changangkha Temple, and The National Memorial Chorten. In Western Bhutan, you will get to meet the Drukpa people, and travel around Haa valley, Paro valley, Thimphu, Punakha valley, Wangdue Phodrang, and Phobjikha Valley. The central Bhutan tour includes a visit to the broad valley of Bumthang (the Cultural Heartland of Bhutan) and the picturesque Trongsa Dzong. During this tour, you will get to experience the unique Bhutanese culture and tradition.
