Luxury Bhutan Tours

Bhutan is a secluded and mysterious kingdom hidden up amidst the Himalayas’ towering peaks. Bhutan only opened its doors to tourists in 1974, and limits the amount of tourists with a daily travelers fee. This tiny country has a reputation for being the happiest in the world, measuring its progress with Gross National Happiness and the Bhutanese are passionate about conserving of the environment. There are also no traffic lights and locals proudly wear their characteristic national dress.

If there’s a role model for sustainability in the world, it’s probably Bhutan. Not only is it carbon neutral, but it’s carbon negative. Over 60% of its forests are protected for future generations, and it’s built around a core philosophy of low-impact tourism and Gross National Happiness. And on top of that, by 2020 it’s on track to become the first fully organic nation on the planet.

You may have heard of Bhutan’s now-famous compulsory tourist tariff, which sees foreign visitors paying a minimum of $250 per day just to visit. But what you may not know is this includes all accommodation, food, transport and a local guide – and it also grants you access to one of Southeast Asia’s most pristine corners.
