Bhutan: Land of the Thunder Dragon

Squashed into a high pocket of land between Sikkim, Assam, Tibet and Arunachal Pradesh in the northeast of India, Bhutan is an extraordinary country, home to a fascinating and unique culture, stupendous scenery and a truly charming people. This trip explores a land that has been cut off from the rest of the world - both through geographical positioning and its own political desires - so much so that in many places things have barely changed at all over the last 500 years.

On the trip we visit some of the many spectacular dzongs and monasteries of this stunning country. The dzongs are the imposing fortresses which are now the civil and religious centres of the districts, often strategically located on hillsides overlooking valleys or beside gushing rivers. We will also take to the trails of central Bhutan to view the rich agricultural landscapes of the countryside, walking through villages of traditional houses with rows of ethereal prayer flags blowing in the breeze, and experience the cultures and customs of these gentle people.

This is a land of demons and spirits, steeped in mysticism, and rituals and will have you gasping in wonder at its unspoilt natural beauty.

Please note that our departures are scheduled to coincide with local festivals where possible, so please check the individual itineraries for more details.

Beware of Ema Datse - delicious if you like hot chilies but a fright if you mistake it for green beans in a cheese sauce.
