Bhutan Tour

The Kingdom of Bhutan is wedged between India and China along the lofty mountains of the eastern Himalayas, between longitude 88°45′ and 92°10′ east and latitude 26°40′ and 28°15′. With an area of approximately 38,394 square kilometers, Bhutan is comparable to Switzerland in both size and topography, being largely mountainous. With these borders a giant staircase is formed from a narrow strip of land in the south at an altitude of 10,000 feet. These unclimbed Himalayan peaks are among the highest on Earth.

Bhutan embarked on the path of socio-economic development in the 1960s and is now one of the fastest developing nations in Asia . The impressive strides in the development sector have not come at the cost of the culture and environment. With more than 70% of the total area covered by forests and diverse flora and fauna, the country has been declared as one of the “Ten Global Hotspots.” In cities and hamlets across the kingdom, the people have a way of life that is rich in tradition and steeped in the age-old system of hospitality. The pristine state of the environment and the vibrant tradition and culture and the kindness of the people are some of the long-lasting impressions that visitors touring & Trekking in Bhutan have cherished long after they leave. The country has also not shied from the good that modern life has to offer. It is this ability of the Bhutanese people that fascinates the visitor. For instance, a sick Bhutanese can either go to see a doctor trained at the best medical schools of India or a traditional medicine practitioner well versed in the country’s own medicine. The intermingling of the Bhutanese culture and Western culture has produced a fascinating visage that makes a Tourism and Travel to Bhutan a very memorable one. 

The first tourists came to Bhutan in 1974 when the present monarch His Majesty the King Jigme Singye Wangchuk was crowned as the fourth King of this land, the Thunder Dragon. Ever since, Bhutan has welcomed thousands of visitors. One would think that years of development have eroded the beauty of this country, which was referred in the olden days as the “The Lotus Garden of the Gods.” All this progress has come in tandem with the preservation and promotion of the country’s cultural heritage. The Government pursues an active policy of preserving the numerous temples, monasteries and fortresses that dot the countryside.The monastic schools and meditation centers located across the kingdom are home to thousand of monks and priests who cater to the spiritual needs of the Bhutanese people. The weaving and a vast range of handicrafts are known for their beauty and make perfect gifts. All in all, Bhutan beckons the traveler in you. So come and Travel to Bhutan with us for a unique and enriching experience of your life time.
