About
On this 10-day journey covering 4 western and 2 central districts of Bhutan, we’ll get you up-close and personal with the local people, eat and live like a local, broaden your adventure by going beyond tourist activities and enjoy experiences that are truly authentic and deeply immersive that will leave you with memories for a lifetime. You will explore the essence of this magical Kingdom with a private expert guide and discover happiness amidst stunning landscapes and majestic eastern Himalayan Mountain ranges and pristine natural environment that made Bhutan the only carbon-negative country in the world. Hidden by the staggering mountains of the Himalayas, Bhutan chose to remain in self-imposed isolation until it opened its door to the outside world in the 1960s and to this day, it still remains largely untouched by the worldly influence and holds strongly on to its age-old traditions.

We have been very fortunate to select Bhutan Acorn to organize our long overdue visit to the magical Kingdom of Bhutan. The guide and driver were very professional, punctual and always proactive. They made our stay very comfortable keeping the itinerary flexible each day.

We must thank Mr. Karma who has been prompt and very helpful in planning our trip right from the beginning till the end.

We definitely recommend Bhutan Acorn Tours & Travel!
