Bhutan is a glorious gem of Asia, kept pristine and untouched, due to being hidden away in isolation for many hundreds of years. The country is often revered as The Land of the Peaceful Dragon; walking amongst the people, mindfulness of life and ritual is awesome, catching, and beautiful. Regarded as one of the last Shangri-La in the Himalayan region because of its remoteness, unsoiled lands, rarely glimpsed monasteries, mysterious flora and fauna, and incredible mountain terrain, it is one of few unexplored pockets of Asia. Today Bhutan only allows a limited number of discerning travelers to enter the country on a special visa permit.
Bhtuans isolation has resulted in its culture and traditions remaining much the same as they were for many hundreds of years. Our introductory 8 days Western Bhutan Culture tour does through stunning beautiful alpine valleys flanked by steep slopes and terraced pastures dotted with temples.The highlights of tour are visits to Simtokha Dzong within the tiny capital township of Thimpu and the Taktsang Monastery that clings to a sheer 3,000 foot rockface cliffs. We may also be fortunate to take in the Festival(Tscechus) that is held in Bhutan throughout the year at different locations. These festivals, filled with ancient rituals of colorful dance and music, are a celebration of faith, legend, myths and history of the Bhutanese. A visit to Bhutan during the festival season would be an added bonus and even better way to observe the unique culture.
