Discover Bhutan with Saṃsāra Asia

All those who wander are not lost.....

About Us

Saṃsāra is a Sanskrit word, the literal meaning of which is "wandering through" or "wandering-on."

Saṃsāra Asia was founded by Tshering Lhamtshok in 2014 to create sensory retreats based on her own traveling experiences through some of the most sacred places on earth. From the epic Machu Picchu (Peru) and the Cradle of Humankind (South Africa) to her own backyard, walking the old growth forests or hovering with the clouds among the indigenous peoples of the Himalayas, Tshering believes a journey is about traveling the inner landscapes of the mind while drifting through places and meeting its people.

Journeys with Saṃsāra Asia is a process to unplug and disconnect from our ‘more and more, faster and faster’ world to slow down, breathe, and re-connect with our inner stillness.
