This fascinating tour visits the tiny Kingdom of Bhutan, which for centuries was closed to western visitors and remained hidden behind the peaks of the Himalayas – thankfully no longer the case today.

ABOUT THE TOUR

This fascinating tour visits the tiny Kingdom of Bhutan, which for centuries was closed to western visitors and remained hidden behind the peaks of the Himalayas – thankfully no longer the case today.

After a night in Delhi, we fly to Bhutan to explore this very special country. Described so aptly by the present Queen Mother of Bhutan as ‘a natural environment of beauty, peace and tranquillity, where cultural and spiritual values have been allowed to grow and flourish’.

Our journey encompasses splendid monasteries and dzong along with the country’s spectacular landscape of fertile valleys, lush forests and snow-capped peaks, its delightful people, and its unique culture. We will also visit Tingtibi, a remote village near the Manas National Park for some hiking and bird watching, getting off the beaten track.

Our visit also coincides with the festival of Rhododendrons in Thimphu at the end of our trip.
