    Bhutan Monks

    The perfect setting for a mind-expanding trip

    Enigmatic, unspoilt, exotic and timeless: this Buddhist mountain kingdom is truly magical and it delivers an experience like nowhere else on earth.

    The classic view of Bhutan is of its important dzongs and their spectacular mountain backdrops, but over the years we have worked to develop something different, exclusive and very special for those who want to do more than scratch the surface. Imagine spending a night at a monastery and waking up to join the monks in morning prayer and meditation, surrounded by brightly coloured flowers.

    As well as the five-star splendour of Bhutan’s newer hotels, there are also some charming local-run lodges and you can use these as good bases from which to explore the main valleys and further afield. Trekking here is also becoming more sophisticated, allowing you to experience Bhutan’s pristine mountain wilderness in great comfort.
