About
On this 6 Days 5 Nights adventure through the hearts of 4 western districts of Bhutan, you’ll go on nature hikes and appreciate the pristine natural environment, explore and ramble through rural villages and gain firsthand experience on its culture and people. Come visit Bhutan with us and explore one of the most unique and extraordinary countries in the world. Bhutan has both natural beauty and cultural wealth so carefully preserved and passed down from generation to generation, that visitors are not surprised to hear its nickname ‘Kingdom of Happiness’. Tucked away deep in the eastern Himalayas between the mighty neighbours – China to the north and India to the south, Bhutan remained isolated for centuries from the rest of the world until it opened its door to the outside world in the 1960s. Bhutan is one of the most beautiful and least travelled countries in the world and the last Vajrayana Buddhist Kingdom.

Outstanding! Highly recommend Bhutan Acorn Tours! They are very professional. They got us our visa in 2 days, stayed in contact through WhatsApp, and provided an outstanding guide, Dema, and an outstanding driver, Karma. We had such an amazing trip in this beautiful country. We booked our tour through Viator.

incredible sights, very knowledgeable, competent, and charming tour guide, expert and careful driver, well-appointed accommodations, perfect itinerary! i have nothing more to wish for, I have achieved the top item on my bucket list. Lhamo and Kencho helped make it a reality.

Bhutan is a beautiful place but my itinerary favorites are the easy hike across Probjikha Valley and (of course) the not-so-easy hike to Paro Taktsang. Bhutan Acorn Tours and Travel made my dreams come true!

The trip was fabulous, dream come true! The country is very beautiful and breath-taking and it was very well organized. The guide was very helpful and knowledgeable about the culture and history with captivating stories. We were lucky that the weather was good. The Bhutanese people are very friendly and chatty all around. I recommend Bhutan as your next travel destination! Thank you, Bhutan Acorn, for making our trip unforgettable!

We definitely made the right choice when we decided to book our tour with Bhutan Acorn Tours & Travel. This Bhutan trip has been in my friend's bucket list for sometime so we wanted to have memorable and iconic moments in this trip. And we did!

We took the cultural and nature tour where we visited a couple of monasteries, the Phobjikha Valley and , of course, the famous Tiger's Nest. For me one of the best moments of the trip was wearing the traditional Bhutanese clothes. It made the experience more authentic.

During our trip, our guide and driver were very friendly and very accommodating with our requests. My friends and I are not good with spicy food so our guide made sure that our food were not that spicy. Our guide was well-informed about the places we visited and the stories she shared especially about the divine mad man intrigued me and convinced me to buy a book about him. On the walls of one of the monasteries that we visited were paintings depicting the life of Buddha and our guide explained it to us effortlessly. My knowledge of Buddhism definitely improved. Phobjikha Valley is stunning with pine trees, mountains, green grass all over the place. Very peaceful. In our last day, we hiked to Tiger's Nest. It is not an easy hike. We saw other tourists wearing flip flops or sandals and they were having difficulty hiking. So make sure to wear proper footwear.

Food was okay. Accommodation was very good. We had a fireplace inside our room in Phobjikha Valley so that was pretty nice.

Overall, we definitely had an amazing time in Bhutan. Kudos to our always smiling guide, Lhamo :)

Highly recommended.

Cheers,
Ivy I.
