Eastern Bhutan is one of the least explored regions of the kingdom and offers one of most authentic experiences for adventure-oriented tourists. The entire region is awash in unspoiled natural beauty, towering cliffs, and pristine forests, with great variations in altitude and climatic conditions.

In addition to the regular buddhist festivals, travelers to Eastern Bhutan will be able to experience some of the country’s most ancient spiritual practices while observing animistic and Bon religious rituals.

The lush, breathtaking environments of the eastern region make it a perfect location for day hikes or longer treks. Accommodations in this rural area are a bit more spartan than other parts of country, but with the option to either to camp out beneath an ocean of stars or to experience the unbridled warmth and hospitality of the locals during a homestay, you will never miss the comforts of your hotel room.

The Eastern part of the region includes the districts of Mongar, Lhuentse, Tashi Yangtse, Tashigang, and Samdrup Jongkhar.
