Bhutan and Andaman Islands

Bhutan and Andaman Islands

15 days

This itinerary between Bhutan and Andaman Islands has all the necessary ingredients to make your honeymoon very special: you will have the possibility to discover the most important sites of Bhutan in a compact tour, ending your trip with 7 days of relax on a beautiful island of Andaman. Bhutan, unlike its other Himalayan neighbours, considers all creation sacred, including trees, mountains, rivers, lakes and animals. Consequently, some Himalayan species near extinction in the bordering countries of Nepal, India, and Tibet are doing well in Bhutan. Bhutan is also the last bastion of Vajrayana Buddhism, a spiritual practice that is known to be one of the most profound schools of teaching in the Buddhist world. The sacred monasteries, the fluttering prayer flags that line the high ridges, the red robed monks chanting their prayers — all give this kingdom an aura of another time. Even if in a short period of time you will have the chance to discover the best that Bhutan has to offer. The sacred Paro Taktshang, so called Tiger Nest was blessed during 7th century, by the great tantric master, Guru Rinpoche, who came here by his miraculous flying on the back of flaming tigress in form of Guru Dorje Drolo from Khenpajong (eastern Bhutan) on his way from Tibet, to advocate the Buddhism teaching in Mon-Yul (place of darkness). During this itinerary at the discovery of the essence of Bhutan you will have the rare chance of experiencing a full day meditation program with monks in Dongkola Monastry, where for a full day you will live in a monastery together with monks. Moreover, in Thimpu you will discover two of the major organisations involved in education of youth through the teaching of traditional arts. The final part of this exciting honeymoon will lead you to the pristine beaches of the Andaman Islands to offer you a Robinsonian-style experience. The islands are an ideal shelter with their fantastic crystal-clear waters, surrounded by jungle and pristine mangrooves, with white beaches that turn red at the sunset. The Andaman Islands are considered one of the most beautiful places in the world for scuba diving thanks to the presence of corals, seabed and colourful fishes. Havelock island is the perfect place to take long walks on isolated beaches of fine white sand. The islands and the eco resort selected offer a wide range of activities to satisfy all tastes, making it a perfect place for couples on honeymoon.

A conscious approach to travel requires a considerable capacity and willingness to adapt and adjust to the local environment and culture. If you wish to travel with us, we request you to be open enough to experience local culture, religious and traditions without bias and pre-conceived ideas you might have before the departure and which belong to our Western cultural way of thinking.

In Bhutan the weather could get wet with sporadic or long showers. Please pack appropriate clothing. Bhutan’s changeable climate means you have to bring an assortment of clothes, including rain gear. Mornings and evenings could be quite cold. Carry with you appropriate warm clothing especially for the evening. A layered wardrobe probably makes the most sense. However, warm clothing is required throughout but more specifically from October to April. Good walking shoes or hiking boots are essential even if you are not hiking. Because of the altitude, a hat or cap and a good pair of sunglasses are essential. Because of the long distances between towns and villages bring the medicines you’ll need along with some first-aid supplies. A good flashlight (torch), water bottle and polarizing filter for your camera will also come in very handy. A backpack is necessary to carry essentials/cameras while you are on local excursions. Monasteries and temples are places of worship, so you should be dressed accordingly. Admission might be denied to men and women wearing short pants/skirts, sleeveless t-shirts/blouses.
Getting to Bhutan is not quite straightforward. The Bhutanese Government monitors visitors into and out of Bhutan. On entry into Bhutan, you will meet an official recognised guide, who will escort you everywhere. He will be with you until you depart. You are strongly recommended to engage with us at an early stage of you are planning to visit Bhutan during Festival periods.
This itinerary offers good opportunities for cultural exchange, adventure, hiking, wildlife spotting and moderate trekking. However, it is not fit for everyone, due to moderate trekking and altitude. Check with your physician to confirm that you are healthy to travel. Inform your doctor where you are going to see if there are any special concerns. Because of the climate and general lack of medical facilities in the villages, you should be reasonably fit before departure.


For this honeymoon trip, the best moment is from October to March, both for Bhutan and Andamans.
