The 11-Day Cultural Heartland Tour is one of the most satisfying tours covering major tourist sites of Bhutan. Importantly, it passes through Punakha, the ancient capital of Bhutan and where kings are still crowned today, and Trongsa, a landmark associated with the Monarchy of Bhutan. The tour will also include a visit to Bumthang, known as the cultural and spiritual hub of Bhutan as it houses many spiritual and religious sites.

During the 11-day trip, you will be visiting many important historical, spiritual and cultural monuments dating from the 7th century to present day. You'll come to understand how Bhutan has been spiritually shaped into Drukpa state, The Land of the Thunder Dragon and the last bastion of the Vajrayana Kingdom.
