Bhutan’s National Museum re-opens
Bhutan's National Museum has finally re-opened after nine long years. Housed in the 17th century Ta Dzong, scenically perched above Paro Dzong, the building was damaged in an earthquake in 2011 but has now been restored to its full glory.
Message from Steve Berry, Managing Director - Covid-19
The events of the last two months show us all how precious the lives of our loved ones really are. The viability of corporations, airlines, banks and even whole economies have been ignored as mankind has come together to defeat this invisible threat. It is a heartening thought isn’t it, that individual lives are more important than money?

New Water-to-Go Reusable Bottle Campaign
Here at Mountain Kingdoms we have teamed up with the revolutionary company, Water-to-Go, which has developed a multi-use drinking bottle with a filtration system that eliminates over 99.9% of all microbiological contaminants including viruses, bacteria, chemicals and heavy metals from any non-salt water source. A filter will typically filter 200 litres or last for approximately for three months of daily use. Any drinking source can be used from a tap in a hotel bathroom, to a stream or even a puddle!
Responsible Tourism Update
2018 saw a continuing commitment by Mountain Kingdoms to responsible and sustainable tourism with the ongoing support of many charities and projects around the world as well as the exciting launch of our Water-to-Go reusable bottle campaign.
