Escorted tours of Bhutan

Discover the magical Kingdom of Bhutan, a remote country where the traditions of Buddhism have remained untouched by the modern world. A happy place where national success is measured in Gross National Happiness.

Located on the Himalayas’ eastern edge, this isolated country was closed to tourists until the 1970s. With many years of separation from other countries, Bhutan has retained a treasure trove of ornate monasteries, temples, dzong fortresses, and dramatic landscapes – along with a strong Buddhist culture.

Bhutan’s landscape is like no other – there are lush subtropical plains to the south, but it’s the soaring Himalayan mountains that the world knows best. Add to this its ubiquitous national dress, architectural treasures, and the colourful hill-side prayer flags, and you have a truly mesmerising country.

Almost every holiday to Bhutan begins in the modern-day capital, Thimphu, where the country’s fascinating culture is concentrated by the bustle and energy of what is also Bhutan’s largest city. Visit the white-painted, golden-spired National Memorial Chorten, a shrine dedicated to World Peace, and the iconic Tashichho Dzong, which presently houses the throne room and offices of the Bhutanese king and the government.

Away from Thimphu, you might discover the colourful town of Phuntsholing, with its carved wooden Bhutan Gate, or perhaps step back in time in the ancient former capital, Punakha, which is home to the grand Punakha Dzong, built at the point where the Pho Chhu and Mo Chhu rivers meet. Above all, no holiday to Bhutan would be complete without a visit to the sleepy town of Paro, set amidst a charming valley, beneath the peaks of the eastern Himalayas. The town is home to Bhutan’s National Museum, but the real draw is the cliff-side monastery of Taktsang Lhakhang, the Tiger’s Nest, one of Bhutan’s (and arguably the world’s) most iconic landmarks.
