Bhutan is the last remaining Buddhist Kingdom, hidden on the rooftop of
the world in the eastern Himalayas between Tibet and India. Isolated, charming, peaceful and devout, the Bhutanese people live in the rarified atmosphere of contentment. Their love of life is reflected in their culture and customs. A visit to Bhutan will bring an understanding of why this beautiful country has remained one of the Indian sub Continent's deepest mysteries. Greaves has designed a tour that journeys through the mountains and valleys while staying at the luxurious Taj Tashi, Uma Paro and Aman hotels. Visits to the monasteries, walks through the valleys, hikes through the terraced hillsides and picnics on the river banks will make this a vacation like no other.
