Luxury Holidays - Bhutan
It’s official: Bhutan is “a natural environment of beauty, peace and tranquility, where cultural and spiritual values have been allowed to grow and flourish” - Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother.
Very few people have ever visited the last remaining Himalayan Buddhist kingdom of Bhutan. For centuries the impenetrable wall of the Himalayan mountains with their forbidding cliffs, plunging chasms and terrifying heights made this tiny country all but impossible to reach.
Modern travel has made Bhutan more accessible, but the number of visitors is still strictly managed. A fact that means the place is unspoiled, non-commercial and infinitely more appealing.
Talk to Ayesha Cronin – our Bhutan expert – and she can arrange for you to join the privileged few, with a tailor-made holiday.
And you cannot fail to be as impressed as the late Queen Mother. Whether you’re standing on the edge of a towering precipice, staring open-mouthed at the vastness of the Himalayan mountainscape; or wandering through the tortuous streets of a tiny town clinging onto a cliff face, you will be struck by the other-worldly beauty of the place.
Festivals and smiling people in traditional dress. The Tiger’s Nest Monastery, fabulous Dzongs (Fort Monasteries) and temples like the Kyichu Lakhang, dizzying mountain passes. They all conspire together to make a luxury holiday to Bhutan one of the experiences of a lifetime.
