A spectacular private journey that begins in the historic and cultural heart of West Bengal, this incredible adventure takes you from the old colonial capital of Calcutta and deep into the mystical Land of the Thunder Dragon, without doubt one of the most extraordinary destinations anywhere on earth. Against a backdrop of colonial grace and towering snow-covered mountains, you will journey from the vibrant cultural melting pot of Kolkata, one of India's truly great cities, and head into the rolling foothills of the Great Himalaya. Here you will have a chance to ride the famous Darjeeling Himalayan Railway and enjoy the serenity and tea estates of Darjeeling, before crossing into Bhutan, a land that for centuries was cut off from the outside world.Over the next eight days you will then explore a culture that has barely changed in 500 years. You'll have a chance to enjoy the compelling charms of Paro and Thimpu and trek up to the spectacular setting of the 'Tiger's Nest' Monastery.
