  • I like this Highland Asia Company because of people, who are working in it. They always try to do their best, to fulfill everything, on what you agreed before beginning of the trip. This is important for people, who decide to travel in Asia, because experienced tourists know, that it's not always like this here.

  • I met your nephew in Nepal, he did an excellent job. Our guide and driver in Bhutan were awesome, too. Our guide in north India was wonderful, it was great to have a Tibetan-Buddhist guide for us. I want to thank you for your service, you did a great job planning the trip and taking care of the problems that arose.I appreciate your help.

Best Time To Travel to Bhutan

Bhutan can be traveled throughout the year but spring (March, April, and May) and autumn (September, October, and November) are the best seasons when you have pleasant weather, clear blue skies and great views of the valleys and snow-capped mountains. Late autumn is also the time of year when the black-necked cranes migrate to central and eastern Bhutan for the winter.

Is Bhutan Tour Expensive?

There is a wrong perception that Bhutan is an expensive destination because of government controlled tariff but what we shouldn't forget is that the daily tariff includes almost everything: three star hotels, three meals a day, accompanying guide, transport, sightseeing admission fees and government royalty. All you need to pay out of your pocket is the airfare, personal expenses such as drinks, tipping, souvenir purchase etc.

Traveling Bhutan is safe.

Bhutan is almost worry-free travel destination and we don't find any adverse travel advisories against Bhutan. There is very little or no crime even in larger cities such as Thimphu. A very rare cases of pick-pocketing and purse snatching have been reported. Intermittent cases of burglaries, theft, robbery and assaults can be read in the newspapers but we have no knowledge of any foreign travelers been victim of such incidents.
