Bhutan

Enigmatic and unspoilt, exotic and timeless, this Buddhist mountain kingdom is extraordinary both geographically and culturally and it delivers a unique and extremely rewarding experience to all who go. Bhutan is a truly amazing place with spectacular Himalayan scenery, colourful festivals, historic monasteries and a population who are more concerned with Gross Domestic Happiness than Gross Domestic Product. The people of Bhutan are warm, charming and gladly welcome you to discover their deeply Buddhist and traditional way of life. A journey through Bhutan will take you through deep valleys, high mountain passes and will certainly be a memorable experience.

Bhutan holds many surprises. This is a country where buying cigarettes is illegal, where the rice is red and where chillies aren't just a seasoning but the main ingredient. It's also a deeply Buddhist land, where schoolkids wear the gho and kira (traditional male and female clothing, respectively) where giant protective penises are painted beside the entrance to many houses, and where Gross National Happiness is deemed more important than Gross National Product. And while it visibly maintains its Buddhist traditions, Bhutan is not a museum nor is it a nation of otherworldly ascetics shunning the rest of the world. You will find the Bhutanese well-educated, fun loving and vibrant.

So why spend your money to come here? First off there is the amazing mountainous landscape, where snowcapped peaks rise out of primeval forests in every shade of green. Taking up prime positions in this landscape are the fantastic monasteries and incredible fortresslike dzongs. The unique Buddhist architecture embodies the traditional Buddhist culture and sets the scene for spectacular religious dance festivals. Then there are the textiles and handicrafts, outrageous archery competitions, spectacular trekking trails and stunning flora and fauna. All this sets Bhutan aside as the last remaining great Himalayan kingdom.

When you do visit Bhutan, you will become one of the few who have experienced the charm and magic of one of the world's most enigmatic countries the 'last Shangri La' and you'll be playing your part in this medieval kingdom's efforts to join the modern world, while steadfastly maintaining its distinct and remarkable cultural identity.
