When selecting a destination we take into account several factors including interest from our travelers, where we have wanted to visit, the culture, how to get there, and so much more. Bhutan is one of those destinations that we have always wanted to visit as well as getting requests to put on our travel schedule. Timing for this has not always been right until we were able to move others around to make dates for this to finally work! So from September 6-14th, 2024 and we hope you join us!
