“I believe when you travel, there’s no better way to connect with people, than through food.”Mark Wiens
Inspired by Mark Wiens of Migrationology.com visit to the country with MyBhutan, over the course of 11 days, we'll cover 10 of Mark's favorite restaurants in Paro and in the capital city of Thimphu — including Kalden Restaurant and Babesa Village, two standouts where locals head to fill up on everything from classics like ema datsi (chili peppers in a creamy cheese sauce) to shakam paa (beef jerky). We'll also make sure you visit places that are almost impossible to find otherwise, like the hole-in-the-wall Peace Restaurant, whose eze (chili paste) is a favorite among local foodies.
In addition to sampling the delights of the city, this tour brings you out to the pristine countryside. You'll experience the heartwarming hospitality of farming families while resting in traditional farmhouses and learning about Bhutanese customs.
In Phobjikha, relish feasts of chili peppers, potatoes, turnips, and radishes grown totally organically -- Bhutan has committed to being the first nation in the world to go 100% organic. Learn to make homemade ara (rice wine) with the locals in Punakha. Prepare nga do sem (special dried fish) with cookbook author Ugyen. Meet Kinley's yaks near 3,988 m (13,083 ft) on Chelela Pass and listen to tales from his life as a yak herder. Try your hand at cheese and butter making in Bumthang -- the dairy tastes so good there, you just know the cows are happy. Along the way you’ll luxuriate in the swirling mists of a hot stone bath, and later climb to the famed Taktsang (Tiger’s Nest).
You get the whole spectrum here: the tour combines the comforts and cuisines of luxury hotels with authentic experiences of living and eating with locals in their homes.
All customers will receive their visa via email one month prior to their arrival date in Bhutan.
