Bhutan’s unique cultural heritage has not changed for years. Centuries-old traditions are in practice to this day and continue to have tremendous value and significance in the daily life of the people. Cultural traditions practiced before the advent of Mahayana Buddhism is still practiced and in some cases combined with Buddhism playing a dominant role in enriching and strengthening the socio-cultural fabric of the country. Hundreds of Lhakhangs, or temples, dot the countryside with a huge reservoir of religious and cultural history enclosed within their colorful and mystical interiors. In fact, every village has a temple and each has a mesmerizing story to tell. Our various Cultural Tours introduce visitors to the unique aspects of Bhutanese culture including visits to sacred festivals and pilgrimage sites.
