This tour to Central and West Bhutan provides the traveller the opportunity to visit local projects and meet young entrepreneurs.

This itinerary is part of the specially designed agritourism tours, which are developed by our Swiss partner Tina Roner from Mountain Grassroots GmbH. Tina worked in the agriculture and forestry sectors in rural Bhutan and guides since many years regularly tours to Bhutan.

The agritourism tours explore rural life in Bhutan. The majority of Bhutanese live in rural areas and depend on farming as their main source of livelihood. The agritourism tours offer travellers the opportunity to stay with farming families, visit local manufactories and explore rural villages off the beaten track. Authentic encounters with local residents are combined with short hikes and Bhutan’s main cultural highlights.

From the travel price of our agritourism tours are 5% donated to the Swiss non-for-profit Mountain Grassroots Association for agricultural development projects in Bhutan.

Note: For groups of less than three, the Royal Government of Bhutan imposes surcharges; surcharges are separated from minimum daily tour prices. You can also visit Tourism Department official website
