Summary

Cradled in the folds of the Himalayas, Bhutan is an isolated kingdom with a unique cultural heritage which dates directly back to the mid-17th century, closely bound with the Buddhist religion. It is only in the last few decades that foreigners have been allowed to visit and the country remains unspoilt by commercial tourism. The scenery is spell-binding, with deep, wooded valleys rising to towering snow-capped peaks and villages and monasteries that cling precariously to the hillsides.

Our tour is timed to see masses of rhododendrons in full flower in their natural habitat, including a Rhododendron Festival. In addition to this our itinerary includes excursions and gentle hikes which take us to the most scenic areas and the best of the attractions, including the remarkable Tiger’s Nest Monastery.

We also take the opportunity to spend a couple of days in Kathmandu in Nepal on the outward journey, a chance to become acclimatized to the altitude here in the Himalayas.

Tour highlights:

  • Enjoy the sights of Nepal’s capital Kathmandu as we acclimatize to life at altitude
  • Stunning views of the Himalayas (weather permitting) as we fly into Nepal
  • Exploring Thimphu, one of the world’s most unusual capital cities
  • Colourful displays of rhododendrons in their original habitat
  • Peace and meditation at the incomparable Tiger’s Nest
