Discover Luxury Bhutan Holidays

Mountains are blanketed with evergreen forests and dotted with Buddhist temples, valleys are sliced by glacial rivers and the air is delicious and clean. Bhutan’s luxury lodges are divine, but it is the people that make your trip so special – they are extremely quick to laugh and they’ve even been ranked No. 1 in the world for Gross National Happiness!

Bhutan is perhaps the most fascinating of the Himalayan kingdoms as entry was forbidden to visitors until 1974 and even after that numbers were still minimal. Landlocked by the mighty Himalayan peaks, Bhutan has been doubly protected from external influences, and as a result, the traditional way of life has survived largely intact, making it the perfect destination for a luxury tailor made holiday. Bhutan's scenery is magnificent; monasteries hang over precipitous drops, often wreathed in mist, and there are pristine forests, fertile valleys, and high rugged mountain passes - all of which make Bhutan a varied and exhilarating destination for trekking holidays. The cultural life in Bhutan is also rich - villagers assemble for vibrant local festivals in the dzong or monasteries and there is mask-dancing in the temples.

Archery is Bhutan's national sport, and the gracious, gentle Bhutanese still wear traditional dress: elegant wraparound skirts or "kira" for the women and checked, floor-length belted robes or "Gho" for the men.The first democratic elections were in 2008 and tourism has been growing steadily and carefully over the past three decades; there are now several stunning luxury hotels - with more to come - as well as simpler guesthouses and inns. Bhutan holidays are always an enriching and unique experience. The "Land of the Thunder Dragon" is one of the last remaining strongholds of Tantric Mahayana Buddhism and its rich cultural heritage is visible in the white-walled dzongs with their communities of studying monks, the decor of peoples' homes and the ornately painted wall motifs. Bhutan holidays have something to offer all types of travellers. Whatever the type of vacation, Bhutan is perfect for a luxury tailor made tour, a trekking holiday or a spiritual break. Bhutan holidays guarantee stunning landscapes, gracious hospitality and a glimpse into a lifestyle and culture long forgotten by the modern world.
