Seeing is believing.
Because of its one of a kind culture which the people still proudly follow to this day and also because of its well preserved flora and fauna which without a doubt can be ranked number one in the world: “Seeing is believing.” is the only expression one could think off in order to best describe the tours in Bhutan. Nevertheless, the mandate the Royal Government of Bhutan places on tourist to choose their tour package prior to even entering the kingdom might stand in your way in terms of choosing which tours might be best suited for you. Hence, Bhutan Pelyab Tours would like to spare this blog post in the effort to bring to you the top 5 tours to Bhutan.

Now if you are wondering what is so special about this particular Valley; then here is to why- Phobjikha valley is not only the home to Gangtey monastery which is the only monastery of Nyingmapa Sect (the oldest of the four major schools of Tibetan Buddhism) but it is also the winter home to Black-necked Cranes- a one of kind bird at the verge of extinction. Hence, if you opt for The Last Shangri La Tour in the months of late-October, November, December, January, mid-February or even beginning of March; you are bound to be faced with the once in a life time opportunity to see these exquisite birds in action. Otherwise, there is a center in this region dedicated specifically for these birds which remains opened all year round, in case you choose to travel in other months.
