Eccentric, exclusive and expensive, Bhutan is like no other country. Bhutan travel is all-inclusive and all tourists on Bhutan holidays or tours to Bhutan must travel on a pre-planned itinerary as this is the only way to explore the fascinating, medieval kingdom, whose name translates as ‘Land of the Thunder Dragon'. [See Bhutan itinerary ideas]
The pretty capital Thimpu has an ancient feel and a pleasing atmosphere. Dominating the brightly coloured buildings is the imposing fortress monastery Trashi Chhoe Dzong.
The country's spiritual centre is Bumthang. Home to many precious Buddhist sites, dzongs, temples and palaces, it is a spectacular place to visit.
Dramatic scenery is everywhere, but some of the most striking can be seen on the flight into Paro from neighbouring Nepal, when you'll pass eight of the world's ten highest peaks before touching down.
700m above the Paro Valley precariously perches the Taktshang monastery, also known as the Tiger's Nest monastery, one of Bhutan's best-known sights. In this mountainous country there's plenty of options for trekking; tackle the Jhomolhari or Snowman Trek to spot spectacular views.
There are several wildlife reserves; head to Sakteng Wildlife Sanctuary for a chance to see the wilderness where the yeti, known locally as the migoi, might live.
