Adventure Travel, Hiking, and Trekking Trips to Bhutan this Fall July 13th, 2010 • by Matt Holmes Tiger's Nest Monastery Along the lofty ridges of the Himalayas lies the Kingdom of Bhutan, a place that has remained blissfully untouched by the rest of the world. With very few visitors entering the country, Bhutan’s landscape has remained pristine, its rivers pure, and its mountains magical. Bhutan’s people are gracious, the culture is rich, and spirituality is prevalent. On our active tours into this last remaining Shangri-La, we meet welcoming local people, red-robed lamas, and nomadic yak herders as we learn about the Bhutanese way of life. We hike to remote gold-roofed temples and monasteries, and through peaceful villages in emerald valleys surrounded by spectacular Himalayan scenery. Boundless Journeys offers many ways to explore this unique Himalayan Kingdom, suited to different travel styles. Explore colorful festivals, trek deep into sacred mountains, or take a Private Collection trip for just you and your friends and family on the dates of your choice. No matter your preferred type trip, Bhutan is a fascinatingly unique country that must be on every intrepid explorer’s list. We hope to see you on the trail!
