    Luxury Bhutan Holidays

    Bhutan, the unspoilt 'Land of the Thunder Dragon', is hidden between India and Tibet in the Eastern Himalayas. For years its rulers have maintained a policy of isolation which has successfully preserved a way of life. Deep valleys and ravines separate colourful, lofty villages where the strong and calm people of Bhutan continue to live a life rich in Buddhist religion and social traditions which have remained untouched for centuries. However, it is now opening its doors wider with deluxe holidays coming to the fore in Bhutan.

    A visit to this enriching land is not to be missed, from colourful tsechus, or festivals and ancient temples to mountain biking and Himalayan trekking. This country has something to offer all ages, with opportunities for tailor made journeys to suit all needs.

    A tour of the Bhutanese valleys, between any of the boutique lodges and hotels, offers a unique insight into the last surviving Himalayan Buddhist kingdom.
