Bhutan East to West Textile Tour 

Bhutan – the land of Gross National Happiness, fluttering prayer flags, majestic monasteries, mountains and undisturbed ecology.  


It is also a land of remarkable handloom textiles 

 Still worn as their national costume.

We will travel overland from the East to the West through villages and valleys seeking out weavers & dyers as we go, stopping at monasteries and incredible views to breath in this magical land.


We start our Journey in Delhi, take a flight to Paro west Bhutan. On entering Bhutan we will be met by our English speaking Bhutanese guide who will remain with us at all times.   We will travel by car/bus (large and comfortable) through Bhutan.  Staying at 3* hotels in the west, the remote east offering more modest & simple food & accommodation and a chance to get off the tourist trail and explore villages to find the weavers & dyers.   

We leave Bhutan in the west, returning to Delhi by air.
