Why Travel Bhutan With Truly Bhutan

Bhutan Village Tour PACKAGES

Druk Tashel

Nestled between the north of Tibet and three sides of India, Bhutan is known as the “Land of the Thunder Dragon” and the “Last Shangri-La“. This state presents an enchanting and unblemished natural and cultural magnificence. The dominant religion in Bhutan is Vajrayana Buddhism, with Hinduism being the second-largest religion, primarily followed by Nepali-speaking Bhutanese in southern Bhutan.

The landscape of Bhutan is typified by rough terrain and precipitous mountain valleys ranging from subtropical plains in the south to the Sub-alpine Himalayas exceeding 7000 meters. The Bhutanese government has shown great care in preserving and promoting Bhutanese culture.

Sometimes, taking a slower pace of life is the best way to rejuvenate oneself. For this reason, we offer homestays and village tours that enable families to experience an authentic rural farm life while promoting family togetherness, community, and a connection to nature. Such an opportunity is not available in hotels.

The Secret of Druk Tashel

To gain insight into the minimalist way of life that many Bhutanese in the villages lead, village tours and farm stays offer a wonderful experience where you can savor earthen pot-cooked food with the family, be a part of their daily life, and even join in archery and dart games with the locals on their off days. Moreover, farm stays offer relaxing hot stone baths.

These tours not only provide a peaceful retreat but also offer opportunities to improve the community’s livelihood. We strive to provide the local community with alternative sources of income through such tours.
