BHUTAN IS THE LAND of mountain legends, nestled high in the eastern Himalayas, between India and Tibet. This is one of the last untouched bastions of ancient civilisation, where the vibrant whirl of the masked festival is very much an authentic celebration. The spiritual resonance of Buddhism is tangible throughout the land with intricately carved monasteries colourfully emerging out of the majestic mountains. The landscape is dramatic throughout, boasting deep wooded forests, emerald valleys bursting with wild flora and snow capped peaks soaring beyond the eye.

What to Wear
If you want to keep yourself cool in the Indian sun, a good supply of cotton clothing is essential along with a comfortable pair of open sandals. An effective pair of sunglasses and a wide brimmed hat will protect you against the strong rays, and it is advisable to use a high factor sun cream. In the cooler months, you will require some warm clothes such as light sweaters, jackets or shawls for the evenings. If your tour takes you to the mountain regions, then you will require warmer clothes. As it can sometimes warm up during the days, layers are always a good option along with comfortable walking shoes. For visits to the Game Parks, we recommend wearing light woollens and a windcheater as the early morning excursions can be quite chilly, with heavier clothing during the winter months of November to February. Khakis, browns or olive greens are best for blending into the environment.
When visiting places of worship and mausoleums there are certain religious customs to be observed. As a token of respect, it is customary to remove your footwear before entering all temples (a pair of light socks is useful if you prefer not to go barefoot), and dress should be fairly conservative, i.e. shorts are not really acceptable. In Jain and Hindu temples leather goods such as belts, shoes and bags will not be permitted.
There are no compulsory vaccinations for travel to Bhutan, although it is strongly recommended that you protect yourself against the following: Polio, Tetanus, Typhoid, Hepatitis A, Cholera and Malaria. We advise you to consult your Doctor allowing at least 4 weeks before the date of travel for all medical advice. Some areas in Bhutan may be at high altitudes so please check with our staff before confirming your itinerary. An inoculation against Yellow fever is required if you have visited any infected areas within 5 days prior to your arrival in Bhutan.
We strongly recommend that you carry mosquito repellent lotions / cream.
