Explore Peaceful Dragon Country Bhutan Tour takes you to the country hidden on the southern slopes of the Himalayas, this tiny kingdom, virtually unknown to the outside world, offers the most fascinating yet untouched natural beauty, unique cultural and ancient tradition. Centuries long, isolated, inaccessible and forbidden, this Himalayan Kingdom cautiously opened its border to the outside world.
Bhutan is perhaps the most pristine of all remote lands in the world. Surrounded by high mountains, following a culture that is strange and interesting, ruled over by a king, protected by Druk Yul, the thunder dragon, the country still retains the flavor of the past. As you walk on the streets, view the deep green hills about you, see the dances and festivals and talk to the people, you feel that this place is somehow different, more precious, perhaps the Shangri – La of James Hilton.
Drukyul, the land of Thunder Dragon, as Bhutan is locally known is sandwiched between two of its great neighbors, China in the North and India in the South. It is as big as Switzerland, but is sparsely populated. The Kingdom is spread over 47,000 kms with varied climatic conditions ranging from sub – tropical to the frigid reaches of almost 25,000 feet snow capped ranges of the Tibetan border.
Bhutan follows the Drukpa sect of Tibetan Buddhism, with Hinduism concentrated in the South. The religion here is strong and its traditional ways are still intact. The festivals and the masked dancer’s are a powerful expression of their beliefs and the monasteries, the fortresses and the hamlets of the Bhutanese people give a clear idea of how life was in the kingdom centuries ago and how it is now. Also the sight of chortens, fluttering prayer flags; prayer wheels turned by water, gold-gilded monasteries dot the landscape and emphasize the deeply religious aspect of Bhutanese life. With over 80% of the population engaged in agriculture or raising livestock, Bhutan remains a rural country devoid of industry.
With magnificent mountains, dense forests, crystalline air, self sufficient and friendly people, precariously placed buildings, large palaces, ruins, stone work, with superb art and arresting architecture, without beggars and crime, Bhutan is truly very near to Paradise.
