2019 Regis Bhutan Program

Deadline(s): TBD

Bhutan

Primary forest, towering mountains, buddhist traditions, stunning dzongs, and Gross National Happiness are a few of the unique traits the last great Himalayan kingdom boasts. The landlocked nation of Bhutan blends the ancient and the modern unlike anywhere else on the planet, preserving its buddhist culture and embracing environmental conservation for future generations. Where the rice is red, chilis are eaten as a main dish, and monasteries are tucked away high in the Himalayas, this country holds many surprises. Having committed itself to environmental protections through modifications to its constitution in the mid 1990s, Bhutan prides itself on 72% forest coverage, absorbing more carbon than it omits, and sustainable tourism. Come see for yourself exactly what this country has to offer, we are confident you will find yourself in the last Shangri-La!!

The Itinerary


We work hard to create engaging, educational, and truly immersive itineraries for our travelers. However, we also know that travel can be unpredictable, so we always design our experiences to be flexible enough to allow for adjustments based on group interests, unexpected opportunities, and any weather or safety concerns that may arise during your program. Should changes to the itinerary occur, we will notify travelers and families as quickly as possible.

With a previous outfitter [I worked with], the experience was more “touring” and no hands-on contributions and work. Walking Tree surrounds the travelers with amazing professionals who are dedicated to their sciences, travels, and countries. Travelers’ experiences are first-hand, authentic and memorable!
