Bhutan, nestled in the eastern Himalayas, boasts remarkable natural wealth. Its pristine landscapes include lush forests, diverse wildlife, and towering peaks, like Gangkhar Puensum. It is a nature lover’s delight & you will experience it during your holidays in Bhutan.
Bhutan is a land brimming with extraordinary natural beauty, adorned with majestic mountains, winding rivers, and lush forests. This country is a biodiversity hotspot, where the flora and fauna continue to astonish with the discovery of new plant and animal species. Bhutan’s terrain is primarily mountainous, spanning altitudes from 100 meters to 7,500 meters, boasting some of the tallest peaks in the Himalayas. The nation is geographically divided into three distinct regions: the towering peaks of the northern Greater Himalaya, the forested hills and valleys, and the foothills and plains of the south.
The diverse range of altitudes, climates, and forest landscapes in Bhutan provides a natural habitat for an array of remarkable plants and animals. Its rich ecosystem is home to over 200 mammal species, an astonishing 612 bird species, and an impressive 5,000 plant species, including 600 varieties of orchids, 300 medicinal plants, and 50 stunning rhododendron species.
Bhutan’s commitment to preserving its forests and wildlife is evident in the extensive protected areas across the country. These include four national parks, one nature reserve, and four wildlife sanctuaries, collectively covering approximately 26% of Bhutan’s land area, spanning over 10,758 square kilometers. Remarkably, many of these protected areas are also home to communities whose livelihoods are intricately linked with nature. It’s a testament to the harmonious coexistence of humans and wildlife in this remarkable land.
In addition to trekking, we also organise specific bird watching holidays.
