Bhutan is a land-locked country sandwiched between the eastern state of Assam in India and China. It is known for its beautiful monasteries and fortresses (dzongs) and its spectacular terrain comprising of steep mountains and valleys. Its capital is Thimphu. You can either fly into the capital to start your trip or alternatively, you can enter from Siliguri in West Bengal in India covering many interesting monsateries en-route. Some of the main attractions are: Tashichho dzong; Rinpung dzong; Punakha dzong; Tiger's Nest or Taktsang monastery.
One suggestion would be to cover Darjeeling in East India & Bhutan and enter the country from the West Bengal border.
Note: there are various visa and permit requirements and trips here need to be pre-planned and done in small groups.
Note: All products in the website are being reviewed in view of the current pandemic on account of the coronavirus. At this point (i.e. when the website was being updated in late Dec 2020 / early Jan 2021), we regret that we are unable to recommend travel from the UK to the majority of the countries in Asia that we deal with. We are hoping that the situation will improve (not only for the anxiously waiting travellers and the tour operators in the UK but also for the thousands of people connected with the travel trade who are more than just associates for us.). When and how quickly travel is likely to resume is unknown to us with the earliest time likely to be in the autumn of 2021. Many of the products may need to be changed at the early stages for the safety of the travellers and the locals at these countries.
