Bhutan

Welcome to the “Land of the Thunder Dragon”, where natural landscapes are untouched and ancient culture is cherished. Sheltered from the rest of the world high up in a nook of the Himalayas, the Kingdom of Bhutan holds many mysteries to travellers, revealing its unique identity slowly but surely.

This is a country where forest-filled valleys give way to mountain peaks that soar so high they could be mistaken as a roof to the world and where the rice is red and chillies are a main ingredient, not just a seasoning. Vast mountain-sides are crowned with imposing fortress monasteries, where colourful prayer flags can be seen to flutter in the wind and where pilgrims flock to be part of vibrant festivals. The undulating terrain also makes Bhutan a wonderful destination for soft-adventures, including trekking, mountain biking and fishing. While naturally majestic, much of Bhutan’s charm owes itself to a population whose pride, Buddhist faith and values rooted in tradition have combined to create a national character unlike anywhere else in the world.
