My thanks to Gray Langur Tours for sponsoring this week’s DF RSS feed. I’ve never had a sponsor quite like this, and I love it. Bhutan is the world’s first carbon negative country, the only place where Gross National Happiness is more meaningful than Gross National Product, and tourism is strictly “high value, low impact” by design.
On October 19, Gray Langur will embark on their Kingdom of the Clouds Tour, a special two-week adventure into the world’s most different-thinking country — one that is, uniquely, as innovative as it is timeless. Those on the tour will explore both iconic and remote regions of the country, and have the opportunity to participate in Bhutanese ritual and culture that most travelers will never get to experience.
This special tour is a one-time event, and as such, availability is extremely limited. Daring Fireball readers interested in adventuring to the fiercely independent Land of the Thunder Dragon can use the code DARINGFIREBALL for a 20 percent discount. Register by September 19 to reserve your spot.
An exotic location — the last surviving great Himalayan kingdom — with truly expert guides. Check out their website and see just how amazing Bhutan is. Gray Langur was founded by Gabriel Cubbage, who until recently was the CEO of AdBlock and whom I’ve known personally for over 10 years. He’s a great guy. I would love to hear from DF readers who take this tour.
