Bird Watching Tour
Bhutan is a paradise for bird lovers and ornithologists. To date, there are over 670 species of birds recorded in Bhutan. These include 10 endangered bird’s species (such as Black-necked Cranes) and 16 species of vulnerable birds (such as White Bellied Heron, Pallas Fish Eagle and Blyth’s King Fisher).
Southern Bhutan is the ecological hub of the country, especially Zhemgang District. Zhemgang is not only rich in bird’s species, but also has a wide range of animals. You may have a good chance to spot the Golden Langur, an endemic species of primates.

Bhutanese textiles are very distinctive and are usually inspired by nature. Every region is specialized in a particular pattern of textiles. For example, Bumthang is well-known for “Yatha” which is vegetable dyed wool weaves, whereas Khoma village in Lhuentse is famous for their “Kishuthara” which is an elaborate woven cloth made of silk. Weavers are mostly women who are proud to create textiles that are stunning in colour, texture, pattern and composition.
