Bhutan is a landlocked Himalayan kingdom that has preserved its unique culture and traditions.  With its breath-taking scenery, from lush green terraced rice-paddies rolling up to high mountain passes with Buddhist prayers fluttering in the wind, to the snow-capped mountains above.

A luxury holiday to Bhutan will provide the chance to experience time-old Buddhist communities, such as travel to dramatic medieval monasteries with maroon-clad monks chanting prayers in unison. We can adapt your private tour to stop at a local festival to see masked dancers in all their vibrancy. If you are looking for a trekking holiday, you can hike through Bhutan's stunning network of ancient walking trails, or just take a relaxing private journey with a selection of light day-walks.

Bhutan is nothing short of remarkable and Bhutan guarantees a travelling experience that is the perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle of the modern world.

We recommend envisioning your time in Bhutan as a journey over 5 to 10 nights, enjoying the luxury embrace of either the Aman's 5 chic Amankora lodges sprinkled across the kingdom, or with Como at their two sublime hideaways in Paro and Punakha - in both cases you will be fully guided on a series of sensational hikes, temple visits and numerous other daily activities and excursions.  We can, of course, tailor-make everything to suit you.  Here are a couple of itinerary ideas to help inspire you.

We have a selection of sublime luxury hideaways:

Getting to Bhutan

You can access Bhutan from a variety of destinations in Asia, including Delhi, Kathmandu, Calcutta, Mumbai, Bangkok and Singapore. We can arrange for you to spend some time in one of those destinations before you travel to Bhutan, or possibly add on time at the end, such as a relaxing beach-stay in Thailand for instance.

Weather and seasons

Best time to visit is October to December and February to May. There are a number of festivals celebrated in Bhutan, in particular Tshechu, which takes place during late summer and autumn with Thimpu Tshechu being the most popular. Losar, or lunar New Year, is also a much celebrated event but exact dates are difficult to predict, it tends to be celebrated around February or March.

Getting here

11 hour 30 minute international flight (via Delhi, Singapore or Bangkok) to Paro Airport in Bhutan.

Visas

It takes about 3 weeks to obtain visas for a visit to Bhutan and we will look after this for you.
