Bhutan – Land of the Thunder Dragon and the happiest place on Earth, where Gross National Happiness was identified by the nation as being more important than Gross National Product.

A new string to our bow, Janet shall be escorting a group of Kiwi travellers to the magical kingdom of Bhutan next April.  Spring is our favourite time in the Himalaya, it’s cooler up high but not chilly, and the many rhododendrons are in bloom.

Janet will be leading the trip which has been organised by Tours Direct, a New Zealand travel company specialising in escorted tours to some of the world’s most exotic and intriguing destinations.

Join Janet on a  magical 20 day tour through the remote and untouched eastern regions of Bhutan – this route from east to west is rarely taken by visitors.

Discover this hidden kingdom of the Himalaya, where you can…

  • Cross four spectacular 10,000ft plus passes, including the 12,465ft Thumsing La during our journey west.
  • Admire the high-altitude rhododendron forests and revel at the variety of other wild flowers we’ll see on our travels.
  • Walk in one of the little visited high valleys of Ura and Tang, in Bhutan’s serene spiritual heartland, Bumthang.
  • Be inspired during visits to some of the kingdom’s most holy and revered temples.
  • Marvel at the imposing and dramatic Trongsa Dzong.
  • Relish the high pastures and gorgeous scenery of the Probjika valley.
  • Enjoy the sights and sounds of one of the world’s smallest capital cities, Thimpu.
  • Take a journey up to the top of the 3810m Chele Pass and down into the isolated Haa Valley.
  • Watch out for some of Bhutan’s unique and beautiful birds along with its botanical treasures.
  • Appreciate meeting Bhutan’s greatest attractions – its people.
  • Be moved by the awe inspiring sight of the breathtaking Tiger’s Nest Monastery and revel in the sense of achievement at making one of the world’s most special short (but steep!) walks.
