Bhutan Holidays


Hidden deep in the eastern Himalayas, the enchanting mountain kingdom of Bhutan has a unique appeal; what other country measures its well being in Gross National Happiness?

Add to this utopian outlook stunning natural landscapes, seductive architecture and incredible people and it’s easy to see why people have called it a real life Shangri-La.

Bhutan has embraced the outside world but on terms that are designed to protect its heritage and culture and limit the number of tourists that come into the country.
Those visitors that do find their way to this magical place are rewarded with an unspoilt and genuinely authentic experience.

  • WHERE TO GO IN BHUTAN

    Bhutah holiday highlights map
    Thimphu
    Thimphu
    Bhutan’s tiny capital city is where the country’s ancient traditions meet the 21st Century in a fascinating blend of old and new. There is a growing buzz of commercialisation amidst the traditional Buddhist sights and Thimphu offers a surprisingly good choice of cafés, restaurants and nightlife that you won’t find anywhere else in this remote mountain kingdom.
    Punakha
    Punakha
    Scenically located on the confluence of the Mo Chhu (Mother River) and Pho Chhu (Father River), Punakha served as Bhutan’s capital for over 300 years. Magnificent Punakha Dzong, dating back to 1637, reflects Punakha’s previous strategic importance. This imposing structure served as an important religious, administrative and social centre and is the country’s most impressive dzong.
    Paro
    Paro
    Home to the country’s only international airport, Paro is most visitor’s first experience of Bhutan and is a charming town to explore on foot. Bhutan’s most iconic symbol, Taktsang (Tiger’s Nest) Monastery, is also within easy reach. This sacred Buddhist temple complex, clinging to a cliff 900m above the valley floor is a magical must see on any Bhutanese itinerary and well worth the long climb!
