Located between the Tibetan Plateau and India, Bhutan is one of the most remote and unaltered environments on earth. This spiritual and mystical land is the last bastion of the Vajrayana school of Mahayana Buddhism which provides the essence of a unique identity for its people.

More about Bhutan
The Kingdom of Bhutan, described as the last surviving refuge of traditional Himalayan Buddhist culture, is one of the most isolated nations in the world. Its landscape ranges from subtropical plains to high mountain valleys and with 72 percent of the country under forest cover, it is home to rare and endangered flora and fauna. The country is flanked by rice paddies, wheat fields, trout-filled streams and scattered settlements whilst its many monasteries and temples beg exploration.
Known as the ‘Land of the Thunder Dragon’, Bhutan is a country which has been visited by many saints, mystics, scholars and pilgrims over the centuries who blessed the land and its people with an invaluable spiritual and cultural legacy which along with a traditional lifestyle, is still richly intact and permeates all strands of modern day life. From the traditional woven national dress worn by the population to the prayer flats on high mountain slopes, from the built environment to the natural envrionment, from the religious mask dances to folk dances, this cultural heritage is proudly evident and offers a unique cultural setting.
