Gracing the eastern edge of the Himalayas, the fabled Buddhist Kingdom of Bhutan, is nestled between India and China. For centuries, it has remained isolated from the world and has only recently begun to open its doors to outsiders- slowly and cautiously. Bhutan’s Himalayan landscape is dramatic and pristine, the traditional Buddhist culture fascinating. Visitors will be treated to beautiful treks along snowcapped mountains that are carpeted with forests and tumble down to flower-filled valleys, a rich bio-diversity that includes unique birds and mammals and unique Buddhist architecture typified by dzongs and monasteries everywhere. Amazing annual festivals – tsechus and dromchoes – and beautiful textiles and handicrafts breathe life into the country’s vibrant traditions. Thimphu, the capital, is the only world capital without traffic lights. Whatever you do and wherever you go, you will be mesmerized by a country and people whose love and respect for their faith and their land is all encompassing.
