Due to the amount of monsoon rainfall the country receives, as well as its relatively sparse population, Bhutan preserves a wealth of un-trammelled, spectacular landscapes. These range from the sub-tropical forests and grasslands lining the border with Assam, through the lush, terraced hillsides, rhododendron and broadleaf woodlands of the central valleys, to the spruce and juniper forests, Alpine meadows and glaciers of the far north, where vast moraines of boulders end in cul-de-sacs of shining ice peaks.
Much of this beautiful country remains road-less (there is no tarmac above 4,000m yet!), so to reach its most remote corners you’ll have to trek for a week or more. That said, the scenery visible from Bhutan’s single-track roads is relentlessly dramatic. Not that you have to be constantly on the move to encounter sublime landscapes. One of the most appealing things about the country is the location of its luxury hotels, many of which survey sweeps of magnificent valleys and forest, with glimpses of the distant snow line, which can be savoured in great style and comfort.
