“A Yogic Pilgrimage:
Illuminating the footsteps of Padmasambhava”

About Bhutan

Welcome to Butan

In a world that is always on the go, Bhutan provides sanctuary. Here, you can find earthly pleasures: archery and age-old crafts, dishes of home-made cheese and fearsomely hot chillies, breathtaking treks and restorative hot-stone baths.

But there’s another Bhutan, too – the one hinted at by the prayer flags strung across gorges and fluttering on every hillside. It’s where irreverent humour meets deeply held beliefs, and epic landscapes and slow journeys create room for quiet awe. In this Bhutan, you can enhance your well-being, immerse yourself in wonder and embark on exhilarating adventures.


Why Neljore journeys?

Expert knowledge

Collectively, we love planning travel experiences, specifically pilgrimages to well-known as well as lesser-explored Guru Rinpoche sites. We come from a family lineage of yogis and practitioners, with roots tracing back to meditation caves and mountains of eastern Bhutan. Individually, we are aspirants of being of service to Buddha Dharma. We have also lived and worked abroad, and we are well acquainted with people and cultures beyond Bhutan. Therefore, we work towards bringing spiritual travel seekers and Guru Rinpoche fans closer to Bhutan and making their travel experience not just easy but transformational.
