Flying to Bhutan on a totally exhilarating mountain flight across the top of the Himalayas, we take time to visit the sights of the capital Thimpu. We explore the valleys of Punakha, Phobjikha and Bumthang before returning to Paro and the spectacular Taktsang Monastery.
A truly special country, the Kingdom of Bhutan is a delightful nation of friendly people, magnificent scenery, stunning Buddhist culture and still very few tourists due to the limited numbers of hotels and flights available.
With a democratic monarchy, and a policy of ‘Gross National Happiness’, Bhutan is a unique gem situated deep in the eastern Himalayas, bounded by India to the south and Tibet (China) in the north.
