Bhutan Group Tour 2019

The Kingdom of Bhutan is a tiny sovereign independent country, located in the heart of the eastern Himalayas. It is tucked between the two giants of Asia, the Tibetan Region of China to its north and the vast plains of India to its east, west and south. Westerners call it the last Shangri-La. Bhutanese call it Druk-Yul, the Land of the Thunder Dragon. Bhutan is one of the few countries that escaped colonization and so remained independent throughout its history. Bhutan stayed in self-imposed isolation for centuries and therefore has a unique culture deeply influenced by Buddhism with a rich and varied heritage and traditions. It embarked on a planned modernization only in the early 1960s. Through its enlightened policy, Bhutan maintains a pristine environment with a rich biodiversity. Bhutan’s development policy is based on the philosophy of Gross National Happiness (GNH). The Kingdom opened its door to controlled tourism only in the early 1970s. Now is the time to experience the last Shangri-La!
