Gangtey Lodge, Bhutan

For collectors of rare, mysterious and almost unvisited destinations, Bhutan has the ultimate wow factor. As a travel experience, it more than lives up to its mystique.

You are unlikely to find a McDonalds or Pizza Express. In fact, there is very little evidence that western civilisation even exists in the mountain kingdom of Bhutan. Tucked high in the most remote corner of the Himalayas, little has changed in centuries. Relatively untouched by mass tourism, the country’s isolation has been its preservation.

What you will find if you make Gangtey Lodge part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Bhutan is sublime serenity. You can spend hours watching white clouds rolling across the roof of the world, and their shadows chasing across the floor of the Phobjikha Valley. You will also be able to take hikes and excursions to discover dramatic scenery and unchanged cultures, temples perched.
