Discover Asia's Cultural Wonders On A Backyard Travel Tour
We love to travel off the well-worn path because you never know what you'll discover. This is exactly what our friend's at Backyard Travel do on trips throughout Asia; they help you discover the culture.
You'll meet the people who live there, explore the natural beauty of the region, and have a chance to embrace the moment and join the ’Naked Dance’ at the Lhakhang Drup Festival, in which face painted performers bless and purify onlookers. The four day festival in Bhutan’s central-eastern district of Bumthang is a colorful and captivating display of a series of sacred performances meant to drive out evil spirits, and bring good luck to all. And, nearby are the fortresses of Punakha and Paro, historic sites in the capital Thimpu, or hike through Bhutan’s central valleys and spending time exploring remote Himalayan villages.
Another must-see is one cavers and rock climbers will enjoy - Son Doong is the world’s largest cave, and was discovered in 2009. This is a tour for fit travelers who love and adventure, and will be rewarded with a underground wonderland of stalactites, stalagmites, and slumbering lakes.
With Backyard Travel you'll also explore Cambodian's history in the north-eastern part of the country, at wondrous Preah Vihear, a World Heritage Site. Here you'll discover the temple complex that has spectacular carvings and lintels, and is perched on the edge of a cliff with amazing views over the Cambodian jungle to the south.
