Luxury holidays in Bhutan

Destinations in Bhutan

  • It may sound funny, but Bumthang’s no joke. Known as ‘little Switzerland’ among locals, this ancient district is the most historic and holy in Bhutan, full of ancient temples and fortress-like dzongs.
  • A long, lush valley bounded by the Black Mountains, Gangtey is often said to be one of Bhutan’s most beautiful areas – no small feat in the Himalayas.
  • With its clifftop monastery, fort-like dzong and misty forests, the valley of Paro makes a mystical introduction to the kingdom of Bhutan.
  • Having served as Bhutan’s capital for centuries, the temperate valley town of Punakha is steeped in national history, much of it centred around its vast riverside monastery.
  • Tradition and modernity collide in Thimphu, where monarchy and monasticism come up against a new wave of bars, nightclubs and internet cafés.
