Bhutan - Beat the Increase!
Prices set to rise considerably in 2012!
Almost every year, there is talk of an increase to the government-imposed tariff on visitors to Bhutan. Whilst this is often deferred, or reduced to the extent that the effect is minimal, it does seem that we are looking at a pretty serious price hike for 2012 for all holidays to Bhutan - possibly as much as £400 to £500 on our longer trips! On a happier note - you can beat this increase by booking on one of the many guaranteed KE holidays in this 'Shangri La' kingdom this coming autumn.
Bhutan offers something for all levels of ability, from the shorter easier graded Druk Path trek or Bumthang and the Black-Necked Cranes to more rugged hikes such as Chomolhari and the Bonte La or the Laya Trek . If you are looking for challenging high altitude trekking then the High Passes of Lunana is hard to beat as one of the finest treks in all of the Himalaya.
If trekking is not your thing then why not ride right across the Kingdom from Paro in the West to Samdrup Jongkhar in the far east - Bhutan Thunder Dragon Ride is one of the world's most challenging cycling holidays!
