This tour in Bhutan is the best Holiday Tour package, you will be able to experience the last paradise on earth. Bhutan – naively called ‘Druk Yul’. Bhutan is regarded as the last paradise on earth. Its isolation, spectacular mountains, wide range of flora and fauna, age-old Buddhist culture, vibrant traditions with mystic aura have made it a real ‘Land of the Thunder Dragon’.
Although Bhutan is small in size (47,000 sq. km. with a population of 600,000), its topography offers dramatic contrast ranging from its southern border of 300 m to the height of 7,000 m Himalaya in the north bordering with the Tibetan plateau of China, encircled by the Indian states of West Bengal and Assam in the south and Arunanchal Pradesh in the east.
Bhutan is a magical little Buddhist kingdom of enchanting people set high up in the Himalayas between India and China. Bhutan was untouched by the outside world until just a few years ago when television and Internet were finally allowed in; visiting the country still feels like going back in time and entering another universe far, far away. Remote Lands immerse you in Bhutanese culture by providing insider an access to private events and extraordinary people.
