One of such festivals is held in Paro which is very sacred festival with the unfurling of the World’s oldest Guru Thongdrel on the last day of the festival.

All packages can be customized. We can easily add extra days to the end of any package that you find on this website. Removing days is usually very easy to do as long as the driving or the treking is still possible. Some of the teks have two days in a row of descent and sometimes, if you are fit enough, we are able to skip a camp or two.
