Kingdom of Bhutan – a special environment where communion with the divine was possible through contemplation and meditation.
Bhutan is not an average place. It is the last great Himalayan kingdom, wrapped in mystery, where a traditional Buddhist culture carefully embraces global developments. There is the untouched Himalayan range covered with snowcaps rising above the forest and beautiful villages. Most often than not this beautiful landscapes becomes the stage for spectacular dance festivals.
By law, at least 60% of the country must remain forested for all future generations; it currently stands above 70%. Not only is Bhutan carbon neutral, but also it actually absorbs more carbon than it emits! For the visitor, this translates into lovely forest hikes and superb birding across a chain of national parks. Whether you are spotting takins or blue poppies, trekking beneath 7000m peaks or strolling across hillsides ablaze with spring rhododendron blooms, Bhutan offers one of the last pristine pockets in the entire Himalaya.
