Bhutan

Drukyul - in Tibetan "The Land of Thunder Dragon" Bhutan is indeed, the Last Shangrila protected by the mighty Himalayas from the rest of the world. Bhutan is only country where still monarch rule is in existence and the Kingdom is blissfully untouched. Hidden in the Eastern Himalayas between India and Tibet as big as Switzerland, but sparsely populated. The Mountains are magnificent, the forest are dense, the people are delightful and peaceful due to Buddhism. The main State Religion is Buddhist and is also Drukpa Kagyupa School of Tibetan Buddhist of Mahayana. Buddhism has provided the essence of a rich culture and fascinating History.

The reason for Bhutan's uniqueness and attraction is that its culture and environment have been largely unaltered by the pressure of polulation or excessive number of Tourist as it used to happen in many other countries. Hence, it is very safe and secure for the Foreign Tourist/travelers visiting Bhutan.

Within its very short history of tourism the facilities provided to visitors are still basic and limited. So we request our clients not to have high expectations in terms of facilities in Tibet. However, we will always put in all our efforts to make the tours as pleasant as possible. The roads, especially the highway from Kathmandu can be rough & is subject to blockade due to land slides & floods & the high altitude does pose a serious threat to quite a few people. The average altitude of the Tibetan plateau is 4000m above the sea level & that is a lot higher than most people have been in their lives.
