KINGDOM OF BHUTAN

The remote and unspoilt Kingdom of Bhutan lies hidden away to the east of Nepal in the foothills of the Himalayas and is the land of the legendary Yeti. It still maintains a rich, unique culture, and in order to preserve that culture, restricts the number of tourists allowed entry. In 2006, it was about 18,000. Whatever your interests, we can design an itinerary to suit you.

MYSTERIOUS TIBET

Tibet, the original Shangri-La, remains a country shrouded in mystery, dominated by the imposing peaks of the Himalayas.

From June to September it is possible to fly from Kathmandu to the capital Lhasa to see the great Potala Palace. For the best views, fly in and drive out and you will be looking towards the Himalayas from the northern side. Trek around Mount Kailash, a pilgrimage destination sacred to those of the Hindu, Buddhist, Jain and Bon faiths.

GRAND BHUTAN EXPERIENCES

The people of Bhutan are charming and gladly welcome you to discover their deeply Buddhist and traditional way of life.  The people jealously guard their traditions and the visitor quickly understands just why. So that unhelpful ways of life are not introduced there is a minimum daily spend for tourists, and that can account for the basic needs of travel, hotel and guide. However, there is a magnificent choice of good and luxury hotels right up to the thousand Dollar nightly level.

There are international flights into the west of Bhutan at Paro airport, and land entry through two border towns from India.  Fantastic hotels have now come into being, with a range that goes up to the super-grand level.  Sightseeing, trekking, wildlife and bird watching are all rewarding experiences. A real treat awaits the curious.
