Expedition Highlights

  • Experience the perfect blend of this region’s fascinating culture, stunning scenery, and rich wildlife on this Nepal expedition.
  • Explore the subtropical forests of Chitwan National Park on foot, by boat, on game drives, and even by elephant.
  • Visit dramatically-situated Tiger’s Nest, Bhutan’s most famous monastery—this is Bhutan adventure travel at its finest.
  • Witness a variety of birds and wildlife from black-necked cranes and spotted eagles to one-horned rhinos and wild elephants.
  • Spend a full day in Thimphu—the main residence of the King—and visit the National Library and Textile and Folk Heritage Museum.

Bhutan is known as the 'hidden kingdom' for good reason. The traditional ways of life are apparent, yet tucked away. We'll get a sneak peek into honest folk life, from working monks in monasteries with magnificent frescoes, to observing the spectacular foothills of the Himalayan scenery. These experiences are unique to Bhutan, like no other place in the world.

    To behold a flock of endangered black-necked cranes in flight can only be described as sublime. The birds’ aerial displays are so beautiful, and their preening dances so balletic, that the Bhutanese people have long believed them to be the souls of reincarnated Buddhist monks returned to earth in avian form.

    Sitting: A Naturalist's Guide

    As a child I dreamed of watching wild creatures, especially mammals, but with no one to learn from, I was left to my own devices to find ways to do so. Youthful interests tend toward the energetic, so it was by bicycle that I explored my home county of Worcestershire in central England.
