Bhutan luxury holiday, 8 days
Description of Bhutan luxury holiday, 8 days
A luxury holiday in Bhutan means that you can traverse as much as much of the stunning Kingdom as possible in a week, with the help of your own driver guide, an internal flight while also staying in some of the country’s most magnificent resort hotels. Starting with no expense spared, you travel to Paro on business class with Druk Air, before being met by your guide who, after settling into your hotel, will give you a guided tour of the city.
First class accommodation on this trip includes Uma Paro and Amankora resort hotels, which proffer the perfect bases for trips into Bhutan’s sacred heartland, Bumthang, a name given to four great valleys of Chumey, Choekhor, Tang and Ura. You will also visit the great Phobjikha Valley famous for being habitat for the black necked crane, visible here in large numbers between November and March. In these valleys famous and revered sites include Trongsa Dzong, the largest Dzong in Bhutan, Kurjey Lhakhang, Rimpong Dzong and the great Taktsang Monastery. Your journey from Bumthang back to Paro Valley will be by air, on a superb flight over the Kingdom’s great mountains.
During your stay, your luxurious hospitality will also include a cultural performance, an audience with Rinpoche, the Tibetan Dzogchen lama, if available, fine traditional food and also spa facilities at your resort hotels. These are just some of our ideas, but do feel free to discuss all options open to you, so that we can create the perfect, bespoke Bhutan trip of a lifetime for you.
PlanetEnvironment has always been our major concern. We try our best to implement the policy of environmental conservation on every service and tour. Our main direction is to provide first class adventure and holiday experience in Bhutan.
We have also conducted various plantation and river cleansing campaigns, in order to contribute to environmental conservation.
Explanations are given during any trekking tours of how to conserve scarce fuel resources, as well as reducing litter & waste production (for example by not ordering numerous different items from trekking lodge menus, and by treating water rather than buying numerous mineral water bottles).
We have recycling information booklets we provide to every client on arrival wherever possible. We do not produce a glossy brochure, concentrating on a comprehensive website, and providing as much information to our travelers as possible electronically, reducing the use of paper and inks.
In the field, guides, porters and clients are all oriented in responsible travel. A zero litter policy is in place so that it minimizes wastage in the region.
PeopleOur Company operate as such that the journeys ensure benefits to the local people and their surrounding as much as possible and any potential negative impacts at the destinations are minimized. We are dedicated to giving something back to the local community.
We understand and appreciate the hard work the guides and porters perform. Therefore we treat and obey the following Guide and Porter Policy to ensure the conditions for our guides and porters are of a humane standard. We work towards eliminating avoidable illness, injury and death.
All our staff are from local communities. Our guides are English speaking and have years of experience as they live locally. Each guide comes fully equipped and supported by us, having obtained the training in the related tourism sectors including Department of Tourism, Guide Association of Bhutan and Association of Bhutanese Tour Operators.
We also organize a small donation foundation where the travelers can also help the locals by supporting one student by giving educational materials such as pencils, crayons, books and paper etc.
