Luxury Holiday to Bhutan

12 Day Tour, from £6675 per person

A 12-day Bhutan holiday which visits the key sights of this picturesque country while staying in some of the best resorts in the country. From the exciting arrival into the country, with the amazing mountain views and steep descent and sharp turns into the tiny runway at Paro, Bhutan cannot fail to enchant visitors. Trek through native woodland to the Taktshang Monastery, an iconic image of the country which seems to cling to the side of the cliff and visit the inner courtyards of Punakha Dzong, often regarded as the most beautiful building in the country. Drive up and over high mountain passes before plunging into lush fertile valleys ripe with fields of buckwheat, potatoes and rice. Explore the country visiting temples, lhakhangs and goemba’s spending evenings in the luxurious comforts of the country’s superb resorts and hotels.
