Located at the eastern end of the Himalayas and bordered by China in the north and India to the south, east and west, Bhutan is truly a unique global destination. A strict limit has been kept on the number of visitors entering the country each year, so you will be one of the few who have directly experienced its beauty and charm. Bhutan’s early history is steeped in mythology dating back as early as 2000 BC. Tibetan Buddhism was introduced in the 9th century.
With its Himalayan snowcapped peaks, traditional Buddhist culture and gorgeous ancient monasteries and temples, Bhutan is rightfully known as being as close as it gets to Shangri-la. In Bhutan, our destinations include Paro, the ruined fortress of Drugyel Dzong, Thimphu and Wangduephodrang, crossing the Dochula pass through the valley of Lobesa to Punakha Dzong (the old capital of Bhutan). In 2006, a global survey rated Bhutan “the happiest country in Asia” thanks to its focus on Gross National Happiness—deemed more important than Gross National Product!
