The wonderful country of Bhutan is completely unlike anywhere else on earth, with a uniqueness that’s hard to pin to any one factor. Perhaps it is the fact that it is the last great Himalayan Kingdom; perhaps it’s the country’s bold and telling choice to measure success in happiness rather than GDP. Whatever the source, there is something magical about Bhutan, beyond the magnificent mountain scenery, incredible architecture and colourful cultural heritage, that is guaranteed to captivate and intrigue the curious traveller.
To protect this country’s ancient traditions and an exceptionally beautiful environment, the country operates a strict tourism policy. That is not to say that travellers are not welcome: the Bhutanese are warm, friendly, and take great pride in sharing their culture. It just means that your trip must be carefully pre-planned with a tour operator – and we at Experience Travel Group (ETG) would love to be of help.
At ETG we’ve got the logistics down pat; we’ve explored the valleys, tried the hotels and met the locals. But, ultimately, our aim is to craft the Bhutan experience that is right for you, to find out what you want from your Bhutan holiday and bring it to life. To start you off with some inspiration, we’ve put together some classic Bhutan holiday ideas. Remember, this is just a starting point: each can be tweaked and tinkered until it suits you perfectly.
