Bhutan remains one of the most exotic places to visit on planet Earth. Nestled in the Eastern Himalayas, it is between India and China. Its mountainous location has long guaranteed its exclusion from the rest of the world when it comes to being infiltrated with the culture of the 21st century. Most of Bhutan is still living in medieval times, where culture and religion are far more important than material possessions. It is this remoteness that visitors come to see when they come to Bhutan and discover for themselves why they call Bhutan the land of happiness!
A Bhutan Tour features a kaleidoscope of opportunities for the visitor. The first and foremost is the rarely seen Eastern Himalayas. These massifs reach elevations of over 7500 meters and their brilliantly white snowcapped peaks contrast magnificently with the deep blue skies of the Himalayas.
Then there is culture. A Bhutan Tour will take you into the very heart of the country where you will meet the people. You will see their traditional dress, try their traditional foods, look at their colorful handicrafts, all while enjoying a cup of tea in their gracious hospitality.
Mahayana Buddhism is the religion of the country, and a Bhutan Tour will take you to some of the most incredible Buddhist monasteries in the world. The highlight of every tour is the journey to Taktsang Gompa, a/k/a The Tiger’s Lair. Perched precariously on a cliff over 1000 meters above the Paro Valley Floor, it is the most photographed Buddhist monastery in the world. Inside are caves where the great guru Rinpoche is said to have flown on the back of a female tiger to meditate as well as to challenge and defeat the forces of evil.
A Bhutan Tour will take you to see hundreds of birds, mammals, colorful butterflies and interesting flora as you ascend from sub-tropical valleys to alpine vistas. A Bhutan Tour offers this and much more to those who journey to the Land of Happiness.
