|Welcome to the Kingdom of Bhutan! Looking for a perfect holiday, an adventure or travel to Bhutan, you have come to the right place to plan your trip to Bhutan.
Tucked away amongst the mighty Himalayan Mountains, the kingdom of Bhutan presents the perfect tourist destination for those wishing to travel to Bhutan. However, it has only been a few decades (from the 1960's) since Bhutan emerged from its self-imposed isolation and opened its door to the modern world and only in 1974 opened its doors to tourists. Taking wise decisions and learning lessons from other countries, the Kings of Bhutan learnt to take baby steps towards modernization, in such a way that development did not mean depleting the natural resources but instead striking a fine balance between developments and safeguarding the environment, preserving and promoting the cultural heritage and practicing sustainable tourism. Internet and television was introduced to this Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan only towards the end of the 20th Century.
Named after the recently re-discovered Ludlow's Bhutan Swallowtail (Bhutanitis Ludlowi), Bhutan Swallowtail Tours and Travels is a registered Travel and Tour Company and one of the most popular,well-organized and efficientTour Operators in Bhutan with exclusive and specially designed tour packages apart from the usual cultural tours, adventure and trekking tours.

You may plan your holiday and travel to Bhutan first hand, but here at Swallowtail Travel Company our itineraries are flexible and we also customize tour packages in consultation with potential guests prior to their actual visit to Bhutan.
Few of the unique and exclusive cultural tours and retreat packages specially designed is the 'Ludlow's swallowtail Tour Package' which takes you to remote villages in Trashiyangtse (eastern Bhutan) to witness Ludlow's Swallowtail butterfly in its natural habitat, and 'YangchuGoemba Retreat Tour Package', a perfect camping getaway from the madding crowd into the serene and peaceful village of Chotengang, from which you will emerge refreshed and rejuvenated. Moreover this retreat also offers you the chance to actually live and experience life in a typical house/village the Bhutanese way. Despite being bombarded by modern living facilities (electricity, mobile phone connectivity and roads), please remember that not much has changed since medieval times in the way of living in the villages. Another cultural tour to Bhutan that we offer is the 'Medieval Kheng Tour Packages', a rigorous adventure into the wild and untamed central Bhutan where you can visit villages and meet indigenous people still living life the ancient way. You will be astounded, shocked and appreciate the way of life in these places, where people still believe strongly in superstition and perform animistic festivals supplicating local natural deities, such practices are remnants of Bonism believed to be the ancient prevailing religion in Bhutan.
The Royal Government of Bhutan Tourism Policy of 'high value, low volume' to regulate the traffic of incoming tourists has had a massive impact on the inflow of tourism into Bhutan and because of which the country has still been able to maintain the rich environment.
