What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

As you walk across a windswept bridge, dodging the threads of the prayer flags whipping in the breeze, Bhutanese kids will run excitedly to welcome you. They will take you to watch their fathers competing in archery tournaments and point out the most beautiful temples and painted houses. Then, with a friendly smile, they will wave you on your way. Travel as it should be.
