Bhutan

An insight into Bhutan

Known as the ‘Kingdom of the Thunder Dragon’ by its people, Bhutan is a beautiful and profoundly spiritual country with striking mountains, vibrant Buddhist festivals and a fascinating traditional way of life.  It has become of the most highly acclaimed travel destinations.  The land has remarkable natural beauty with a pristine envrionment and a friendly tradition bound people. To the discerning international traveller, Bhutan has become an exotic and enticing final frontier.

Bhutan’s present travel status comes as no surprise given that this tiny kingdom, the size of Switzerland, was zealously sequestered from the world for centuries. The door to this mythical Buddhist kingdom was opened to limited tourism only three decades ago.  Travel to Bhutan is still regulated through a policy of high value tourism.

At this time and age travel to Bhutan is a refreshing experience. Here, a deeply ingrained sense of hospitality, a universally acknowledged ecosystem and a living culture ensures every traveller the best that any nation has to offer. Travel to Bhutan is really an exploration of a tradition and culture that has been preserved through the centuries. In Bhutan, it is not about seeing a display showcased for tourists but living and sharing an experience with the Bhutanese. From religious festivals to a celebration on a farm or a game of archery, become a part of it all. This is true interactive travel.

Tours in Bhutan typically revolve around its many fascinating Buddhist festivals with amazing displays of national celebration and religious devotion. You can visit remote villages and experience the traditional Bhutanese way of life.
