Discover More About Bhutan


Bhutan, Land of the Thunder Dragon, is a nation wrapped in myth and legend. Virtually untouched and nestled deep in the eastern Himalaya, this is a mysterious and peaceful country of supernatural beings, ancient monastic fortresses and warm-hearted people. A bastion of Tibetan Buddhism, Bhutan is best known for its religious festivals known as Tsechus where colourful mask dances and religious performances depict the cultural heritage of the country. Nearly all settlements in Bhutan have a Dzong – a fortress and seat of civil and religious power unique to Bhutan – and the valleys remain staggeringly distinct, from subtropical Punakha with it spectacular Dzong and the stunning high-altitude scenery of Gangtey to remote Bumthang and the far-flung valleys of eastern Bhutan. Pettitts Travel specialises in providing quality, tailor-made holidays and tours to Bhutan.

Customer Testimonial

This was a wonderful holiday. Bhutan is a land that I have never before experienced. It seems an anomaly surrounded as it is by India and China. Culturally it is quite different to its neighbour to the south. It is modernising quickly and trying to hold on to its religion and traditions.
