Bhutan, a Buddhist kingdom on the Himalayas’ eastern edge, is known for its monasteries, fortresses (or dzongs) and dramatic landscapes that range from subtropical plains to steep mountains and valleys. Because of its largely unspoiled natural environment and cultural heritage, Bhutan has been referred to as “The Last Shangri-la”.

So, this year explore your hidden Happiness surrounded by iconic monasteries & great scenic beauty

Just came back from my trip to Meghalaya with WS yesterday and I must say it was one of the best travel experiences that I've had. Doesn't matter if you're solo and joining a group of strangers or travelling with your own group of friends with WS, the team will make sure you have an amazing experience. Kudos to our trip lead, Saurabh for being so calm, friendly and planning everything so well. Met some amazing people on this journey who are now good friends. We didn't realise how quickly the days passed on this trip.. but i guess that's what happens when you are truly enjoying it. Look forward to many such adventures with WS!

My first experience with Wondering soul. And we really had great experience. Our host Sidhart Tiwari is the best treak leader. Very kind, suppportive, down to earth, helpful, joyful in nature. He is the best example of how the trek leader should be. All the best Sid for your future journey. We would love to travel again. See you soon. Take care.
