Resources and Links
After you make a reservation,
we will send you further information on practicalities,
such as clothing, expected weather, medications,
immunizations, and other important considerations.
In the meantime, we recommend that you continue
to research travel to Bhutan. Here are a few
of our favorite resources.
At libraries, book stores, and Amazon.com
Timeless Books, Bhutan, by Francoise Pommaret, 2003. Your best bet! (We
met Francoise in a hotel in Jakar as she
guided a tour from France. A great book--very
detailed and accurate descriptions.)
Lonely Planet, Bhutan, updated 2007,
3rd Edition (I'm not fond of this one and even
though it is published later than the Timeless
Books guide mentioned above, I don't feel the
updates are accurate or well researched. But
you should have both books.)
