Find Yourself in Bhutan – Escape, Experience, Adventure

Nestled in the Eastern Himalayan ranges between Tibet to the North and India to the South, which locals call Bhutan “Drukyul” or the Land of the Thunder Dragon. Bhutan is a democratic Himalayan Kingdom with a history dating back thousands of years. Although much of its written history had been lost due to butter lamp fires caused in the fortresses monasteries, what remains is a fantastical oral tradition of myths and legends that comes alive during the vibrant and colourful annual festivals. Bhutan is an adventurous, spiritual, spectacular and pristine travel destination.
