Treasures of Bhutan with Kolkata

Remote and undiscovered beauty

We love talking holidays and we're here to help. If you'd like our advice on how to create an amazing Kolkata holiday, just give our Destination Specialists a call.

The tiny and remote Kingdom of Bhutan has a unique ancient culture and breathtaking scenery. Discover the charm of this medieval kingdom as you travel by jeep to see its Buddhist monasteries, dzongs (fortresses and castles) and sacred shrines. Stretch your legs on scenic walks through paddy fields and traditional villages and enjoy views of the magnificent Himalayan mountains. Bhutan is slowly opening up to the modern world but still limits the number of tourist in per year so now is the ideal time to experience this mystical and relatively unknown destination.

Our Experts Recommend:
  • The sights and sounds of Kolkata
  • Magnificent Himalayan mountain views
  • Jeep touring and mountain walks
  • Buddhist monasteries and fortresses
  • High mountain passes
  • A traditional rice growing village
