Scenic Heli-Adventure to Bhutan Look Aging in the Eye

[09/01/17] 

So, you’ve decided that in 2017 you’re going to be a little more adventurous, a little more daring, a little more inspiring.

Aftercall, not all New Year’s resolutions can be about belt-notches and Crossfit rep goals. Travel is an admirable goal; it makes you wiser, it opens new horizons, and gives life context. In the words of Mark Twain, “travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness,” and that’s a good thing, right?

If you’re looking for the ultimate adventure to kick your year off, why not soar through the Great Himalayas of northern Bhutan by helicopter with the ground-breaking new Scenic Heli-Adventure from Como Hotels & Resorts? The first access to the Royal Bhutan Helicopter Service, the tiny kingdom’s air ambulance fleet, for well-heeled tourists, the six-night itinerary combines luxurious accommodation, scenic drives, spa treatments, world-class spa cuisine, and guided daily excursions with one of the most captivating helicopter experiences on the planet. Reach Bhutan with Druk Air via Bangkok and land at Paro, one of the most challenging airports to land at in the world, where you’ll check in at the acclaimed Como Uma Paro. From there you’ll explore magnificent dzong fortresses and timeless shrines of this stunning valley, before taking a brand-spanking-new Airbus helicopter to the remote Laya Valley - at 13,500 feet the country’s highest settlement. After a spot of spa cuisine and a few spa treatments at Como Uma Purnakha, you’ll take to the air again, this time soaring over the almost inaccessible Utsho Tsho, the Turquoise Lakes of the Labatama Valley; swooping over nomadic yak herding camps; and cruising past the iconic Tiger’s Nest Monastery (to which you’ll climb the next day) for the ultimate aerial photo opportunity.

That’s a resolution worth keeping.
