Asian Bhrikuti Holidays has two 2 countries where it operates featured on the top 20 worldwide destinations list selected by Conde Nast Traveller's discerning readers for 2020.  Bhutan is ranked 12 on this prestigious list and India ranks at 20. Asian Bhrikuti offers both as single destination to visit or a combination of both with a side tour to include Nepal.

 

The kingdom of Bhutan a unique destination nestled in the Himalayas is known for its special culture and natural heritage, its people and outstanding preservation of traditions and environment. The only carbon neutral country, its “GNH” are the three letters you should get to know if traveling to Bhutan. The “Gross National Happiness” index, after all, is how the government measures its own progress, using non-materialistic Buddhist tenets such as sustainable and equitable socio-economic development and environmental conservation.  In its citation Conde Nast mentions "After all, part of what makes this gorgeous little country so special is just how quiet and untouched its landscape is."

 

India makes it to the top 20 rank, with its history of colonial rule and amazing natural and rich cultural diversities. From the beauty of desert landscapes of Rajasthan to the verdant South, it is in the words of tourism promo "Incredible India!" Prepare to be surprised and amazed by the experiences of this multi faceted country that is the sum part of different ethnic cultures and geographical landscapes.

 

To quote Conde Nast's citation "From the congested (yet exhilarating) streets of Mumbai, to Himalayan peaks and pristine Indian Ocean beaches, the geography here can only be described as breathtaking. Obviously the popular circuit of Rajasthan, Goa, and Mumbai in the west are must-visits, but make sure you leave time for something a little more wild, a little more off the beaten path—diving into the ultra-remote Andaman Islands, glamping at 14,000 feet at Shakhti Laddakh, or tiger safari in Bandhavgarh National Park will do the trick. Layers and layers of history intersect everywhere you turn, and part of traveling the subcontinent is embracing that you’ll never really find how deep the rabbit hole actually goes. As they say, you’ll just have to enjoy the journey."

 

Dont miss out on the endorsements of readers and choose Bhutan and India to travel in 2021 for lifetime experiences!
