NEW DEPARTURE | Spring 2022

Visit the grand Talo Festival of western Bhutan

 

An active hiking journey to Bhutan’s 2020 springtime festival in the valley of Bhutanese Queens

Group | 12 Days | Moderate Touring

Dates: March 28 ~ April 08, 2020

 

The bucolic Talo & Nobgang valleys in western Bhutan, surrounded by green rice paddies during sowing season, and overlooking the ancient capital of Punakha, is the ancestral home of Bhutanese Queens. Each year, a Buddhist mask dance festival celebrates the foundations of the monastery established by the illustrious Shabdrung, the "Great Unifier," who codified the religious and administrative laws of Bhutan. This journey takes us to the Grand Talo Festival, named for the famous monastery pictured on this page, combined with a hiking adventure across the main cultural centers of Bhutan.
