Luxury Holidays in Bhutan

With its misty mountains, turquoise rivers, whispering forests and sweeping plateaus, the Buddhist kingdom of Bhutan remains one of the world’s most mysterious and alluring countries. Let Lightfoot Travel create a bespoke itinerary for you to experience untouched natural beauty, exclusive luxury retreats and lodges, gourmet cuisine, and unbeatable trekking and spa treatments.

Punakha is Bhutan’s administrative capital. The city is home to the most beautiful Dzong in the country, the Punakha Dzong, which sits at the confluence of the Pho and Mo Chu, two of Bhutan’s most famous rivers.

Paro lies in the stunning Paro Valley. The main street here is very traditional, filled with shops, businesses and restaurants. Just 10 kilometres outside of the town is the famous Taktsang (Tiger’s Nest) Monastery, which hugs the face of a sheer 1,000 metre cliff.

Located in the western central part of the country, Thimphu is the capital, largest city, and political and economic centre of Bhutan. It’s home to many important political buildings as well as the King’s official residence, the Dechen Chöling Palace.

Festivals hold a special place in the heart of the Bhutanese and are intrinsically linked to the culture. Religious celebrations are held around the country throughout the year - The Tsechu Festival is one of the most popular.

We adore Bhutan for its religiousness, for providing an antidote to the stresses of modern day life, and for its sheer romance. Whether you’re searching for adventure, culture, a honeymoon, or a spiritual sojourn, Bhutan promises memories to last a lifetime.
