This magical Himalayan kingdom, is a land of rich art & craft, abundant flora & fauna, majestic snow capped peaks, adrenaline testing trekking trails and awe-inspiring monasteries. With the country opening up for foreign tourism only in the 1970s and having ‘Gross National Happiness’ as its Development Philosophy, the country has managed to preserve its largely untouched characteristic.
So while visiting a lot of the well known Dzongs (monasteries) in Bhutan may be what would top your must visit list, the magic is in discovering smaller towns on the way. While every country has a lot to offer the discerning traveller, Bhutan offers you a chance to discover the closest alternative to ‘Shangri La’ – an earthly paradise!
