Situated at the easternmost of the Great Himalayas, Bhutan, a secluded garden of Himalayan kingdom, is probably the closest destination for the lost Shangri La.
It’s a small Buddhist country where pristine forests outnumber world-wide tourists; one of the handful countries where the philosophy ‘High Value, Low Volume’ leads to better protection of primeval cultural heritage and unspoiled Himalayan landscapes.
Cultural tour gives you insight of this Himalayan Kingdom in best possible way. You will be escorted through beautiful valleys of Paro, Thimphu, the capital of Bhutan, and the picturesque and sub tropical valleys of Punakha and Wangdue in west Bhutan. You will encounter magic of simple Bhutanese life that transform into happiness and contentment making the society truly peaceful and happy.
Village lives are simple and pure. People’s thoughts are straight forward and undiluted. Here you will meet monks in their monasteries during their chanting or other monastic activities. The densely populated region of Eastern Bhutan is separated from Central Bhutan by a high mountain barrier range that extends from the Tibet border in the north almost to the Assamese plains in the south.
There is less forest cover here, probably on account of the age-old practice of slash-and –burn agriculture and the cultivated land is much more abundant. Eastern Bhutan includes the six districts of Mongar, Lhuntse, Tashigang, Tashi Yangtse, and Samdrup Jongkar.
