Luxury Grand Tour of Bhutan

14 days from £6,795 per person

Hidden away between India and Tibet is Bhutan, the most magical and mysterious of all the Himalayan nations. It is a land of pristine alpine valleys, dotted with fluttering prayer flags and ancient mist-wrapped monasteries that cling to impossibly steep mountains. This comprehensive itinerary covers the highlights of this breathtaking country. Fly to Paro via the old capital of the Raj, Calcutta. Start your Bhutan journey with the bustling capital Thimpu and later drive to the dramatic hillside town of Trongsa. Continue with a visit to Gangety, the winter home of the rare black-necked crane followed by the serene alpine valley of Bumthang. From here move to Punakha with its incredible dzong and finally, saving the best for last, relax in the pristine alpine valley of Paro.

Throughout your stay experience gracious hospitality and rural living, and gain an unforgettable insight into this magical kingdom. For those who enjoy light trekking this can easily be included into the itinerary. Until recently the level of accommodation in Bhutan has been simple, however this has now changed with the arrival of Aman Resorts and COMO hotels. This dramatic increase in luxury comes at a price which is refelected in the difference in cost between our superior and luxury tours. This luxury holiday is purely a suggested itinerary. It can be booked as is or alternatively used as a starting point for creating your own tailor made trip to Bhutan.

My favourite thing is to go where I've never been.

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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
