The Last Shangri-La
Tucked away at the top of the world, Bhutan is a veritable paradise virtually untouched by outside influence. This tiny Buddhist kingdom was hidden from the world for centuries—its borders were opened to travelers less than 40 years ago—and thus retains the enigmatic allure of an ancient land crawling into modernity.
The government maintains strict guidelines in order to create a sustainable tourism—the result being an environment that is never overrun and is always enchanting.
Breathtaking Himalayan Scenery
The scenery alone is reason enough to tour Bhutan: ensconced in the mighty Himalayas, the country’s rugged white-capped peaks, lush rice paddies and pristine streams are a jaw-dropping testament to nature’s best rough-hewn handiwork. Yet it is so much more: a deeply spiritual culture, where monks live simply as they have for centuries.
