Bhutan is the best little secret of Asia. Overshadowed and nestled between China and India, it is a relatively new travel spot, with many undiscovered secrets in its natural scenery and quiet townships. The land is dotted with red-clothed monks, ancient Buddhist temples and friendly smiles. It is one calm country, where gross national happiness is more important than money, where chillies are used as a vegetable rather than for spice, and the thunder dragon, Druk, is emblazoned on the national flag, symbolising the people of Bhutan: loyal, patriotic and living with a total sense of belonging within the kingdom. Highlights/r/n
  • A magical kingdom in the Himalayas nestled between two spiritual hubs, Tibet and India, it would be hard not to feel closer to enlightenment in this hidden paradise.
  • Bhutan is quite possibly the most environmentally friendly country in the world; by law 60% of the country must remain protected national forest and the country actually absorbs more carbon than it uses.
  • Journey to Taktsang, commonly know as the Tiger's Nest, the small monastery clinging to a rocky cliff 900 metres above the valley floor and soak in its magnificence.
  • While it’s legal to consume imported meat, the slaughtering animals for consumption within Bhutan is outright banned therefore delicious veggie dishes are varied and bountiful at every meal.
  • Experience an optional Dotsho, a traditional Bhutanese medicinal bath where river water is heated solely by using fire-roasted river stones in a wooden bathtub. Fresh artemisia leaves are added and the stones crack to release minerals into the water while the herbs release their essential oils.
  • Hike to the top of Khamsum Yulley Namgyal Chorten for gorgeous views of the valley and rice terraces surrounding you.
