Bhutan – The Last Shangrila

  • This unspoiled kingdom in the Eastern Himalayas has an enlightened society and government. Here the joy of the population is paramount – gross national happiness is considered more important than the gross national product.
  • Tourism is relatively new in this country which did not have roads until the 1960’s. It is strictly controlled in order to protect the ancient culture and environment from any negative impact. No independent touring is allowed. Tourists must be on a pre-planned guided tour or custom planned vacation.
  • Discover this fascinating country on cultural tours, treks, bird watching expeditions, biking or photography tours.
  • The many Buddhist festivals are a highlight of Bhutan. At these extremely colourful events with music, dance and drama, you’ll see villagers and townspeople gathering to witness masked dances, sword dances and other sacred rituals performed by monks in elaborate costumes.
  • Festivals take place all year ’round at temples and monasteries throughout Bhutan. Plan well ahead as these events are extremely popular for visitors.
