"Thank you for organising our holiday (to China).

We had a great time.

All of the guides were on time, very well informed and easy people to be with.

We have seen so many things and eaten in local places where we would never have gone by ourselves.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you and if you would like more details of our adventures or a statement of recommendation let us know."

Nicola, Michael and Family

Tiger's Nest, Bhutan


"Arrived home safe and well and had a wonderful holiday in Nepal and Bhutan" - Michael and Eileen


Bhutan has a National Policy for a minimum tariff/per day tourist rate. The Royal Government has adopted a very cautious approach to the development of tourism in an effort to avoid the negative impacts of tourism on their culture and pristine environment. All tourists must travel on a pre-planned, prepaid, guided package tour, or custom travel program. Tourism supports the Kingdom of Bhutan and its citizens as a portion of all tourist fees goes directly to the government.


Bhutan


Bhutan, known to the Bhutanese as Drukyul, the land of the Thunder Dragon, is truly another world.

In this unique and hidden Kingdom of Bhutan, where Guru Rinpoche once flew in on the back of a tigress, you will feel the breath of mysteries and powers which still prevails.

If there is magic left in this world, Bhutan is where you will find it!

Roughly the size of Switzerland, this tiny Himalayan Kingdom lies between India and China. Its spectacularly diverse landscape, culture and biodiversity remain virtually unchanged by the passage of the centuries.

We work with the best local travel specialists to ensure your Bhutan tour is an experience to remember!

Kathmandu is the first arrival point for most visitors. Mountains surround the valley and it is divided into three major cities - Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur.

These were once three different kingdoms and to this day they retain their own rich artistic styles and traditions.

Juniper Trail - 10 Days


This itinerary offers an in-depth experience of Bhutan combining a short trek with a diverse insight into the country’s culture; which makes this such a fascinating place to visit.

The proposed trek is an absolute gem as it unfolds spectacular landscapes and takes you off the beaten path. Our guides were the first people to research the route in 2006 and were fortunate enough to discover an absolute classic. They also had the honor of naming it - The Juniper Trail. The local guides now consider this to be the best short trek in Bhutan, offering rewards normally reserved for much longer itineraries in the high Himalaya.

In the lower valleys, the landscapes of Paro and Thimphu are dominated by striking dzongs or monasteries which are visually spectacular and truly fascinating places to visit. More...
