Holidays to Bhutan

Tailor-made, private journeys and group tour holidays to Bhutan


Why travel to Bhutan

While Bhutan is nowhere near as isolated from the mainstream of South Asian life as it used to be, the country certainly comes closer to the old ‘Shangri-La’ myth than any other. Buttressed on three sides by high peaks, this small, thinly-populated mountain kingdom the size of Switzerland has maintained its traditional way of life to a degree that’s unique in the eastern Himalayas – and in a style that’s fabulously idiosyncratic.

Where else in the world are men obliged by law to wear Argyll socks and knee-length, cross-buttoned tunics? And which other country can claim as its national symbol an animal that looks like a cross between a cow and a goat (the ‘takin’)? Or which has archery as its national sport, has banned foreign television and tobacco, and measures its success not merely in terms of economic growth, but GNH – ‘Gross National Happiness’?... a scale on which Bhutan scores very highly.

Highlights of Bhutan

  • Spectacular fortified Buddhist monasteries, or dzongs, at superbly evocative locations

  • Unique Himalayan culture: traditional dress ubiquitous

  • Rare wildlife: from elephants to tigers, red pandas, snow leopards and black-necked cranes

  • Awesome landscape at all altitudes

  • Comparatively few tourists
