BHUTAN: Mountains, Mysticism and Festivals
A Photographic Expedition with David Samuel Robbins
Long isolated, deeply traditional and stunningly beautiful, Bhutan, Land of the Thunder Dragon, is a must-see on every adventure traveler’s lifetime bucket list.
This very special itinerary includes an outdoor Tibetan masked dance performance in the gorgeous Bumthang Valley, visits to several of Bhutan’s distinctive Dzongs, (massive, walled fortress/monasteries) and a drive over a 12,000-foot Himalayan mountain pass, festooned with prayer flags.
A short domestic flight brings us to Bhutan’s less touristed East, and from here we will begin our drive westward back to Thimpu, the Capital city. Along the way we will explore the serene Phobjikha valley, located on the migratory path of the endangered Black-necked Crane, and later tour the main Monk’s Assembly Hall of the Punakha Dzong, an architectural masterwork of incredibly intricate Buddhist statuary and painting.
There are several easy (and optional) day hikes through lush, terraced rice fields to traditional villages.
There will be endless opportunities for shooting environmental portraiture, ornate traditional architecture and stunning landscapes.
$ 7,995 per person, based on double occupancy / room sharing (Includes the Paro - Bumthang domestic flight).
$1,995 solo / private hotel rooms, all nights in Bhutan
