Bhutan

No-one knows Bhutan like we do. For the last 25 years we have forged relationships with the Royal family and the Bhutanese government  to give us unique access to this magical Himalayan kingdom. Colourful monasteries and ancient temples stand silhouetted against the mountainsides just as they have for hundreds of years. Wildlife is abundant, rivers are pristine and forests unaltered. But rather than see these from the back of a coach Live the Adventure has developed an incredible programme so you can take in the majesty of this country by foot, bike, kayak and raft.
