WITH THE BHUTAN GOVERN­MENT’S Friend­ship Of­fer to Aus­tralian na­tion­als in ef­fect from this June to Au­gust, World Ex­pe­di­tions (WE) – an Aus­tralian ad­ven­ture travel com­pany – has launched a spe­cial cut-prices even-day cul­tural tour. This one-time of­fer cel­e­brates 15 years of diplo­matic re­la­tions be­tween the two coun­tries, and sees Bhutan’ s all-in­clu­sive manda­tory min­i­mum pack­age rate–which in­cludes ac­com­mo­da­tion, meals and pro­fes­sional guid­ing ser­vices – much re­duced from the usual US$200 per night per per­son. Th es­pe­cially crafted itin­er­ary cov­ers high­lights of western Bhutan: Paro, Thim­phu and Pu­nakha Val­ley in­clud­ing a hike up to the Ta k ts hang Tiger’ s Nest Monastery cling­ing to the side of a steep, for­est-stud­ded g ra nite cliff. Soak up the nat­u­ral tra nquil­lit y of the val­leys and moun­tains as well as the na­tions’ his­tory to be found in its fortress monas­ter­ies. Fa­mous ly, the Hi­malayan king­dom is the only coun­try in the world that mea­sures its de­vel­op­ment and progress in terms of a hap­pi­ness in­dex. The trip is priced from AU$2,190 per per­son, around AU$1,000 less than a com­pa­ra­ble trip with WE. Find out more at­ex­pe­di­
