BHUTAN aka ‘Druk Yul – Land of the Thunder Dragon’ is a breath-taking region in the Himalayas bordered by India on the south, east and west and by the Tibetan Autonomous Region of China on the north. It has an area of approximately 46,500 square kilometers.
Bhutan has it all; culture, charming people, excellent rivers and stunning mountains. It’s the kind of place that rejuvenates the soul. With that said, we are going back for more. After two amazing trips in 2007, two trips in 2009 and two more trips 2011, we are more than ready to visit our favorite little kingdom again!
In prior years, perhaps one of the least traveled to places in the world; Bhutan is now becoming popular tourist destination. With it’s tourism policy of “low volume, high value” and a former King’s concept of “Gross National Happiness”, Bhutan offers to the world a country that has it’s environment intact (boasting a 62 % forest coverage), has protected it’s culture & heritage and is perhaps the last remaining Buddhist Kingdom in the world. See what Bhutan has to offer, meet the Bhutanese people, experience it for yourself.
