Bhutan is also known as “The Land of the Thunder Dragon”. It is a landlocked Himalayan kingdom between India and the People's Republic of China as neighbors. Bhutan is one of the most isolated nations in the world for being a spiritual country and the last bastion of the Vajrayana school of Mahayana Buddhism. Bhutan is still regarded as one of the last "Shangri-La's" in the Himalayan region with spectacular mountain terrain, varied flora and fauna and its unique ancient Buddhist monasteries.
The Kingdom of Bhutan is a small country nestled high in the Eastern Himalayas. The only international airport is situated in the second largest town of Paro. Bhutan is incredibly special to visit for many reasons; the mountain vistas and unspoiled landscapes are stunning. The culture is unique, and the people are reserved but yet friendly. The country remained in self-imposed isolation for centuries, aloof from the rest of the world, it still stands like a mythical Shangri-La mesmerizing visitor with its pristine environment and inhabitants.
The country’s landscape ranges from the lush subtropical plains in the South to the sub alpine Himalayan mountains in the North, where there are peaks higher than 7000m however Gangkhar Puensum is Bhutan’s highest peak and may also be the highest unclimbed mountain in the world.
Bhutan is the only country in the world to measure the collective happiness and the well-being of its population through Gross National Happiness, more importantly than the Gross National Product.
