About
This 8-Day trip offers an eye-opening adventure into Bhutan's rich ancient culture & abundance of nature through the hearts of 4 western districts. You will go on nature hikes, appreciate the pristine natural environment, explore rural villages, and gain firsthand experience on its culture and people. On Day 6 of your trip, you will trek to one of the most sacred pilgrimage sites called Bumdrak located on the mountain meadow at an elevation of 3,860m. The trail takes you through green lush forests following ancient trails and enjoy breathtaking views of Paro valley. Camping will be on a serene mountain meadow adorned with Chortens (sacred Buddhist stupa) and fluttering prayer flags. Your return journey back to Paro will be via the most recognized site in Bhutan, 17th-century Taktsang (Tiger’s Nest), built on an 800-meter rock cliff sacred site founded in the 8th-century.

Hi there,

I had a great time in Bhutan and am very happy that I chose to travel with Acorn Tours. My tour guide and driver were so thoughtful and accommodating and did a great job of showing me around the country. No complaints at all and would definitely visit again.
