12-Day Bhutan Revelation Tour

As a child you must have read fairytales of Kingdoms in the middle of snow capped mountains ruled by a wise king and pictured it with lush green valleys, thick forests, cascading waterfalls and a happy populace? Visit the land where these fairytales can be envisioned and experienced in real life, Bhutan.
The land of Buddha will touch you spiritually and invoke such feelings with its serenity that can only be felt and experienced.
Driving through the meandering roads of the Himalayan Kingdom, you will find adventure in every step, as you re-discover this relatively unexplored terrain.
As the cool mountain air caresses your face, and the sweet smell of trees and flowers tickles your senses, you will feel that you have become one with nature in this god’s own land!

Join us as we take you to explore those terrains of the world that only a few have experienced!

Tushar and Sanjay personally lead all convoys and have explored every single route themselves! Self drive as part of their convoy, meet like minded travellers, experience the highs of driving though exotic landscapes and harsh terrains.
