Bhutan family holidays –offers a fascinating and unique experience; rich in culture, heartwarming hospitality with an abundance of activities for the entire family.

Bhutan is wonderfully unique as a country, with many treasures that make it a great place for a family holiday. The Bhutanese government’s policy of high-value low impact tourism means that only a few foreigners visit the kingdom, the local people are excited to greet travelers which come and share their traditions and culture in a truly immersive experience. They are extraordinarily kind and generous to visitors, especially when you travel as a family. To make it even more appealing for families to visit Bhutan, children aged under 12 are exempt from the minimum daily tariff.

Although Bhutan is incredibly different from countries in the west, there is no overwhelming daily culture shock to contend with. There are however some minor compromises which may be required, electricity and plumbing can be erratic at times, teenagers may be especially surprised by the perceived lack of fashion or make-up choices and slower internet connection speeds (which does become less reliable the further east you head). Smokers will also have to adjust as tobacco sales are forbidden. Parents may just view these as positive reasons to visit the kingdom.

Alpine Eco Trek carefully designs your holiday to take your interests into account and work with flexible guides who accompany you throughout your trip and will modify your daily activities as needed.

upon arrival at Paro airport, depart straight for Thimpu through winding and gentle uphill till we reach Chapchhal Pass. The road descends from the pass till Chuzomsa (meeting point of two rivers) and enroute we can see Chhuka Hydel Project which is the biggest hydro power plant in Bhutan. Packed lunch will be served half the way to Thimpu, just above Chhuka Hydel colony.

Morning leave for Gangtey. Explore Gangtey Gompa and Phobjikha valley. Spotting black necked cranes in the meadows next to Gangtey is an ornithologist's delight. The cranes migrate here from the high plains of the Tibetan plateau in winter to milder climate of Phobjikha valley. Also visit Gangtey Gompa monastery, the only Niyingmapa monastery in this region. Evening return to Wangdi for overnight.
