Mountains, Monasteries & Magic!

Bhutan, the “Land of the Thunder Dragon, is a tiny country nestled on the edge of the Eastern Himalayas. Bhutan  is a land where magic and myths are a part of history; where there are more monks than soldiers; and where progress is measured by Gross National Happiness. Home to some of the best hiking trails, stunning landscapes, ancient temples and monasteries, Bhutan is shrouded in mystery and magic. One can see a mix of traditional Buddhist culture along with modern day developments. If you wish to slow down your fast paced city life and relish a moment or two in the lap of Himalayas, Bhutan is the place for you! Join us on a journey across Bhutan's best places: Thimphu, Punakha and Paro to explore the treasure box of a traditional Himalayan Life.

    The recently concluded trip to Bhutan (16 -22 September '18) by WOW Club was an experience in itself. I would highly recommend it to my friends and family. Not only was the trip well organised, but it was immaculate from the stage of enquiry. Travelling solo for the first time made me explore myself and thanks to WOW for providing women like me with an opportunity to explore onself. The guides, Dhana and Tek, were such warm people that they made me feel at home even in a foreign land. Finally, the travel buddy that went along, Kanika Gupta, though went as a WOW buddy but came back as a friend. Thanks Kanika for being around and making it even more worthwhile.

    Amazing experience in Bhutan, simply out of the world. Meeting new people, seeing new places and yummy food. This time I went with 2 of my friends but came back with 20 friends. WOW ,buddy Kanika was a sweetheart. Managing everything meticulously at the same time keeping us entertained. Getting packed breakfast ready early morning at 5 am to catch the 7 am flight was very touching . No hiccups in the trip. Not to forget Dhana, our guide and Tek, our driver was part of the WOW family. This was my fourth trip with WOW and looking forward to many more. Long live WOW, our best wishes are always with you.

    Right from the word go it was an amazing trip. The very first sight of Bhutan after getting off the plane was a visual treat.The shimmering waters all along our trip from paro to thimpu and the mountains to add to the charm. Bhutan received us with mountains all around , this neat and beautiful country with the lovely people was truly a great visit.
    The painted houses and the monastery was a perfect back drop for travellers, we visited monastery, trekked through the mountains to reach the tigers nest. I am very impressed that we had trekking for three days, Amid paddy fields enroute to Chimi Lhakhang temple, the divine symbols every where. All the three days trekking was great fun. The last day trek to tigers nest called the Taktsang was I could say a feat of achievement for me.
    The river rafting was definitely a surprise and we were absolutely thrilled doing it. Words fail when I speak about our dear Kushika so charming and friendly and helpful throughout. The group was absolute fun coming from various places it was magical bonding on the mountains of Bhutan. I should conclude the scenic place, with all the adventures, wonderful group and with our dear wow buddy kushika you can't ask for more. My first trip with wow and it was truly a beautiful experience.
