The wait is over: Northwest Rafting Company just announced its return to the Buddhist kingdom of Bhutan, offering a selection of rafting trips embracing the country’s enthralling culture.

Positioned in the eastern Himalayas between China and India, Bhutan’s mystique encompasses a wide range of festivals, a deep respect for the natural world and an emphasis on valuing happiness over material wealth. It’s also the only country in the world that is currently carbon negative, and national policies adhere to a commitment to low-impact tourism.

 

“Known for its commitment to low-impact tourism and rich cultural offerings, Bhutan is a peaceful place that feeds the spirit,” said Zachary Collier, owner, Northwest Rafting Company. “The Bhutanese are warm and gracious, and their hospitality is legendary.”

Highlights of the upcoming rafting journeys include visits to the handicraft school in the capital city of Thimphu and the largest sitting Buddha statue on the planet, along with a hike to Tiger’s Nest, the cliffside monastery located at Tasktsang. Participants will also enjoy forays to view ancient fortresses known as Dzongs.

 

The trip roster includes these fall expeditions: Nov. 3–11, Nov. 5–13, Nov. 5–19 and Nov. 13–21. Prices begin at $4,195 per person for each of the nine-day journeys, and $5,995 for the 15-day trip. Lodging, camping and rafting gear, group meals and entrance to cultural sites on the itinerary are included. Airfare to and from Paro, Bhutan, is excluded, and travel insurance is encouraged, as tours are offered through special permission of the Bhutanese government and are non-refundable if canceled.
