new year brings new adventures … in bhutan!

December 17th, 2008

Eggnog, latkes with crème fraîche, holiday hams, cookies … the holidays can be a time of over-indulgence.   As sugar levels start to stabilize, the new year leaves us hungry (well, maybe that’s not the best word …) to do something that is not only invigorating but also authentic and meaningful.  So for 2009, why not commit to one of Uma Paro‘s eleven Adventure Retreats that are sure to shake off the post-holiday blues?

Expanding from the nine programs in its inaugural season last year, the series includes two new itineraries – Multi-Activity Adventure (August 1-8) and Bhutan Through a Lens (November 21-28).  In the former, thrill-seekers may choose from any or all of the following: whitewater rafting, fly fishing, a round of golf in the grounds of Trashi Choe fortress, an overnight camping trek, mountain biking, and a Bhutanese archery tournament; meanwhile, the latter has guests traversing the beautiful kingdom with camera in tow.  Aspiring photographers could not ask for better subjects than the landscapes, prayer flags, monasteries, and villagers of the region; however, guests will want to save a few frames for the Uma Punakha lodge.

This retreat will be the first to utilize COMO’s new 11-room lodge that’s complete with a restaurant and COMO Shambhala spa and is a five-hour’s drive from Uma Paro.  Better sign up now while there’s still space!
