Bhutan is set high in the Himalayas between India and China; where snow-capped mountains, verdant valleys, dense jungles and crystal-clear rivers combine with a calming ancient Buddhist culture. This beautiful country is one of the top ten biodiversity hotspots in the world and the centre of 221 Global Endemic Bird Areas, has over 120 Butterflies, 28 endemic to the Eastern Himalayas and 750 plant species also endemic to Eastern Himalays. Bhutan is truly a wonderful destination; the perfect escape from daily routine.
Our experienced team has trekked across the mountains trails, reached the remote areas, studied the wildlife and researched for documentary films, now we feel that we know Bhutan well. We have also travelled widely through North America and Europe, discussing holiday requirements that you feel are essential. This has helped us gain the extra information that is needed to make your holiday here in Bhutan, a memorable experience.
Langur Eco Travels believes that the government’s policy of ‘low volume but high quality tourism,’ is essential in order to preserve the pristine environment of Bhutan; crucial if we are to remain one of the world’s bio-diversity hot spots. With this in mind our 2010 itinerary sees the introduction of Farmhouse stays, a truly eco-friendly, cultural experience, where we offer you the chance to experience a village festival.
We have ensured that all our tours will have a guide who is expert in his field and knows the area ‘inside out!’
To accompany us on our camping trips, we have a team of drivers, porters and fully trained cooks, who are fully experienced in catering for international clients.
So, we invite you to come to Bhutan; to walk our soaring mountains, explore our indigenous forests, wander our vast dzongs, listen to our emotive music and watch the wind flutter through the prayer flags on its way to the Gods. Bhutan, home of the Peaceful Thunder Dragon, welcomes you.
