Launch a broad choice of Bhutan Vacations with appealing discounts.

Bhutan’s re-opening of its borders and relaxation of limitations provides Indians with an intriguing new visa-free closer-to-home place to explore.

Thomas Cook (India) Limited, India’s premier omnichannel travel services provider, and its Group Company, SOTC Travel, have introduced a selection of enticing Bhutan vacations with attractive deals to stimulate travel demand for the destination.

Customers can choose from the Company’s ready-to-book trip portfolio, which includes air-inclusive group tours, land-only tours, and bespoke alternatives, starting at an incredible Rs 31,899.00* per person for 5 days.

The product ranges of Thomas Cook and SOTC include budget/value tours, affordable luxury, and premium holidays. Customers can take advantage of appealing promotions such as the Buy One Get One – Companion Free offer and cash discounts.

For the next festive season and beyond, the companies seek to target India’s families, millennials/young professionals, couples, and honeymooners.

In addition to its ease of travel, the Kingdom of Bhutan offers an awe-inspiring mix of mountainous vistas and subtropical plains to Indian consumers.

Thomas Cook and SOTC’s Bhutan portfolio includes the Kingdom’s distinct culture, monasteries, fortresses, spiritual and historical attractions such as the Paro Valley museums, the magnificent Rinpung, Tashichho, and Simtokha Dzong fortresses, as well as the Taktsang Palphug Monastery and Buddha Dordenma Statue.

Bhutan is a traveller’s delight, offering everything from nature tours in Thimpu, Chele La and Dochula Pass, Phobjikha Valley, and Jigme Dorji National Park to vibrant local markets, spa-wellness experiences, and exciting outdoor & adventure sports.

Exhilarating white-water rafting in the gorgeous rivers of Khamsum Yulley, tough rock climbing at The Nose, Thimphu, kayaking in the Wang Chhu and Puna Tsang Chhu, and much more await adventurers.
