Bhutan

Bumthang

Bumthang is one of the most historic districts of Bhutan, littered with ancient temples and sacred sites, leading it to be known as Bhutan's 'spiritual heart'. Bumthang is also accredited as the birthplace of Buddhism in Bhutan. With direct flights from Paro, you can easily dip into Bumthang or take the longer road journey on a luxury tailor-made tour.

Many of these ancient buildings such as the 7th century Jampa Lhakhang are decorated with vibrant wall paintings and richly adorned altars that all have fascinating stories behind them. The surrounding area is also famed for its cottage industries including Bumthang butter, Emmenthal cheese, honey and the locally brewed Red Panda beer. The region is also known for its lush and fertile valleys full of apple groves and rice fields. It is perfect for at least three days, seeing a mix of the cultural and historical sites, but also longer day-walks. You can also fly there from Paro in the winter months, and we can tailor any tour to your specific requirements to include Bumthang.
