Out-of-this-world luxpeditions: Asia
3. Trekking remote India with Butterfield & Robinson
Staying in local Shakti houses or domed-tent comfort, you’ll trek through India’s remote Indus Valley between the Himalyas and feast on North Indian cuisine prepared by your private chef. You’ll meet monks at monasteries, experience traditional village life and marvel at vistas you won’t soon forget.
4. Bhutan by bike with Remote Lands
You’ll want to train for this cycling trip but your efforts will be well rewarded. Aside from stunning rides through valleys, rice fields and forests, you’ll pedal to a monastery in the mountains, take part in a Buddhist festival and learn about Bhutanese history and culture. A comfortable stay is on offer after each strenuous day out on two wheels.
5. Journey to the East 2 with TDA Global Cycling
The 2,900-kilometre ride across South Korea and Japan will take you through modern cities and over lonely mountain roads, past temples and World Heritage Sites. You’ll then refuel on sushi, sake and barbeque and soak weary limbs in natural hot springs.
