From Bhutan to India's Andaman Islands... A Romantic Adventure from Mountain to Beach

17 days from £4,895 per person

Dovetailing the best of two very different worlds, this stunning itinerary transports you from the remote Bhutanese Himalayas to the cerulean warm waters of the Andaman Islands. Spend a week in Bhutan exploring this remote kingdom’s highlights such as the Punakha Dzong, Thimpu's markets and museums, and the tranquil Paro valley - the site of the remarkable cliff hanging Tiger's Nest monastery - before heading down via Kolkata to the heavenly island of Havelock in the Indian Andaman Islands for four nights.

Choose to relax on the beach or for the more adventurous superb diving and snorkelling is on offer. These destinations are at their best between September - November or March – May, with clear mountain views in Bhutan and a guaranteed burst of sunshine on the beach. 

This is purely a suggested itinerary so can be booked as it is, or used as a starting point for creating your own luxury tailor-made tour of Bhutan and India. If you'd like to see similar trips, take a look at our Epic Journey and Honeymoon collections; as well as our favourite Multi-Country, Beach, Scuba Diving and Mountains & Trekking holidays.

I dislike feeling at home when I am abroad.

Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
