Simply Bhutan sightseeing tour will give you inimitable experience and knowledge of culture, tradition, historical and nature beauty of Paro and Thimphu cities. In Paro, Paro Taktsang, Rinpung Dzong, Kichu Lhakang and national museum of Bhutan are the major points and places for sightseeing. Bhutan is known for its rich in Monasteries and Djongs that's why it is famous for Bhutan Cultural tour for family holiday visit and the Jhomolhari Trek in Bhutan add more values in sightseeing tour packages.

As many tourists and travelers know, Bhutan is the only country in the world where you can visit only as a member of the guided tour. Without having guide and purchased full package in advance, no one can enter Bhutan for travel.

Thimphu, the capital of Bhutan and the center of government, religion and commerce, is a city with curious mixture of modern development alongside ancient traditions. Thimphu sightseeing tour shows the city as a fitting and lively place. Home to civil servants, expatriates and monk body, Thimphu maintains a strong national character in its architectural style. Tashichho Dzong, Ringpung Dzong, Gangtaeng monastery, Drukgyal Dzong and Dechen Phodrang monastery are main focal points that have to be included in exploration of Thimpu Bhutan.

Most of the traveler’s ask about visa and entry process in Bhutan. Satori Adventures always includes that information to make it easy for clients to learn about the process.

The tourist can travel to Bhutan only with the package tour purchased through travel agency. It will take 2-3 working days to collect visa after we applied the documents through Bhutanese council. Tourist’s can enter Bhutan from Nepal, Indian, Thailand and Bangladesh by Bhutanese airlines companies only.

Satori Adventures and Expeditions run the trip base of Kathmandu, Bagdora, Bankgok, and Dhaka airport.  Fly into Himalayas with Druk Air, Bhutan's National Airline. Snowy peaks, green walls of the steep hills called gateways rise in Bhutan from the plains of India ever higher as the plane flies north towards the Tibetan border. Silvery rivers rush along the valleys, waterfalls plunge down the forested mountainsides, and to the north, the great snow capped peaks of the inner Himalayas rise up to the heavens. Farm houses dot the hillsides on either side of the plane. As the aircraft enters the Paro valley, look down and you will see the Paro Dzong on the hillside overlooking Paro Chu (river) with Ta Dzong, formerly a watchtower and now the National Museum, above it. Upon arrival at Paro International airport meet our representatives and transfer to Thimphu, the modern capital town of Bhutan. In the end after having breakfast our representative will arrange transfer to airport for your onward destination.

How to book holiday trip  Nepal , Bhutan and Tibet ?

Satori Adventures and Expedition aims at giving proper information to many travelers, trekkers and climbers who have some confusion regarding the booking process of the trip in Nepal.  Satori Adventures therefore desires to provide guideline for the first-time visitors or travelers so that they can comfortably start the process to book the selected package legally. Before starting the booking process we always advise our trekkers, travelers and climbers to intelligently check whether the company is genuine and whether they are fully safe to travel in the company’s guidance. We ask them to be acquainted with the company they want book their holiday trip with. Is the company genuine and authorized from Government of Nepal, Office of the Company Registrar, Department of Tourism and Civil Aviation, Nepal Rastra Bank ‒Central Bank of Nepal (authorized for foreign currency), Permanent Account Number (PAN), and the Department of Cottage & Small Industries).  Are they financially secured and environmentally conscious? We advise them to make sure about these formalities because there are some companies in Nepal that have been running business without abiding by the rules and regulation of the Government. Some companies were once registered but by now their licenses have already been expired and yet they have providing the services illegally.

On many occasions, Government of Nepal and Trekking Agency Association of Nepal have found that many foreigners’ tour operators, NGOs and INGOs have been involved in directly operating tours, trekking, and mountaineering holiday adventures without having government license and abiding by the Government rules. It has been also found that many individuals, freelance guides and porters have been arranging trips illegally by creating their own personal website. We have observed that many trekkers and climbers face a host of problems once they arrive in Kathmandu as they lack adequate information.  Many of them file complaints to Government of Nepal and Trekking Agency Association of Nepal for legal action such as the refund of the advanced payment. There is hardly any justice given to the cheated clients. Thus, so as to prevent all these probable problems we request our travelers to check the company before booking any trip to the Himalayas.
