After you make a reservation, we will send you further information on practicalities, such as clothing, expected weather, medications, immunizations, and other important considerations. In the meantime, we recommend that you continue to research travel to Bhutan. Here are a few of our favorite resources.

At libraries, book stores, and Amazon.com

Timeless Books, Bhutan, by Francoise Pommaret, 2003. Your best bet!  (We met Francoise in a hotel in Jakar as she guided a tour from France. A great book--very detailed and accurate descriptions.)

Lonely Planet, Bhutan, updated 2007, 3rd Edition (I'm not fond of this one and even though it is published later than the Timeless Books guide mentioned above, I don't feel the updates are accurate or well researched.  But you should have both books.)

“Two exceptional festivals with only our group and the local villagers in the audience. The opportunity to interact with the monks and villagers cannot be overstated - we hosted meals for entire villages, taught kids (and our guides!)to play with Frisbees, and gave visually impaired students a chance to learn about photography and receive their own cameras.." —TripAdvisor Review of Rainbow Photo Tours
