Holidays to Bhutan

Bhutan is a Himalayan kingdom of exceptional beauty, and a land that has only relatively recently opened its doors to allow travellers a chance to witness its towering snow-capped mountains, lush forested national parks, ancient traditions and easy going Buddhist way of life. The ‘Land of the Thunder Dragon' has a small population of around 700,000 and places an emphasis on ‘Gross National Happiness' rather than ‘Gross National Product', both of which combine to give it an enviable reputation as the world's last remaining Shangri-La.

Harmony aside, holidays to Bhutan offer many other characteristics that will engage and surprise you and you are sure to come across fascinating monasteries, archery competitions, stunning landscapes, the ubiquitous chilli, and a welcoming smile as you enjoy one of the most captivating countries in Asia.
