Additional Info

Nabji Trek: This 5-day Nabji – Korphu trek , in the foothills of Black mountains under Jigme Singye Wangchuk National Park was opened in 2006 but only recently has the route begun to grab attention. To minimize the impact on the fragile ecosystem of the region, only one group is allowed to walk the trail at a time. As a part of community tourism initiative, local villagers are employed to provide services and amenities in addition to our guide and cook from Thimphu. This trek may also be done in reverse order.

Monpa People: Monpas are believed to be the earliest settlers in Bhutan. They number around 3000 and inhabit villages dotting the mountain slope over looking Mangde Chhu near Jangbi. Monpas practice a mix of Buddhism and animistic shamanism.

Dear Madam,
Thank you for the incredible experience I had in Bhutan. I still can't believe that this place still exists! everything was perfect, the guide, the driver, the car, the hotels, and the food. so much taste in every dish. the last day was perfect, with the climbing to Taktsang and the evening with a relaxing hot stone bath and dinner at the farmhouse. once again, many thanks for organizing this amazing tour and you shared your happiness with me, and congrats to Singe and Sange (or how their names are written).


"Great company, great price. I was thoroughly impressed with World Tour Plan. The package seemed a lot, however, once we started the tour, we realized how amazing the pricing was considering everything we did, where we stayed and every other thing that was included. I'd recommend the World Tour Plan to anyone. Not only is it a great price, but you see everything you would want to see in Bhutan, and you see things you wouldn't have thought to see. You also get to do things you wouldn't think to do. The staff were incredible as well. Couldn't have asked for a better trip!"

Priti Shroff,

"Had a blast! Everyone should travel with World Tour Plan ! A different way to travel but a great way to make real friends and properly get to know a country."
