Shrouded in mystery, myth and steep mountains, Bhutan is a small kingdom nestling between India and Tibet. For tourists it is a one-of-a-kind experience, rich in age-old traditions and lively festivals. The jewel in the crown is undoubtedly the sacred Tiger’s Nest or Taktsang Monastery clinging precariously to a cliffside 9,843 ft./3,000 m high up on one side of the upper Paro Valley. Here you will find peace of mind like no-where else. According to legend, Guru Rinpoche reached this isolated location on the back of an air-born tiger, hence the name, but visitors are not so lucky and will have to walk the trail with its many steps.
The kingdom may be small, but it is alive with festivities all through the year. At these occasions it erupts in celebrations of music, dance, interesting rituals and colorful costumes. Famous are the Thimphu Festival in October and Paro during March, so you may consider scheduling your trip around those times.
A trip to Bhutan is synonymous with astonishing scenery with steep hills covered in green forests and shrouded in mist rising up from raging rivers far below. Ancient traditions and the way of life are still alive amongst the people embedded in their Himalayan surroundings since time immemorial. Read More +
Many superb fortresses, locally called dzongs are found on hilltops and in valleys. A large number are still active with resident monks, and shelter valuable religious relics and artifacts. Bhutan may be a poor country, but with its unique philosophy of GNH or Gross National Happiness, its people are considered amongst the happiest on earth.
This government policy draws many visitors from abroad, curious to witness the tangible evidence of this philosophy firsthand, despite the steep daily tourist tax. Many come here in search of tranquility and some relief from their daily stress associated with work and the demands of daily life. Here travelers hope to discover the secrets of a happy life, to find out how it is possible for a population deprived of most modern technology and resources, and without wealth to live such a blissful life. Well, why do you not join one of our trips to the small Himalayan Kingdom and discover the secret to happiness for yourself.
