Bhutan is a tiny Buddhist country perched between India and Tibet and floating high amongst the clouds in the Himalayas. Closed to the world until 1974, Bhutan is often romantically referred to as The Last Shangri-la. With over 70% of the country covered in virgin forest and with spectacular views of the Himalayan mountain range, it boasts some of the world's most beautiful scenery.
Bhutan is a country steeped in tradition and despite periods of great change, it has successfully managed to preserve much of its ancient culture. To this day, the Bhutanese continue to wear traditional dress and observe ancient customs. The people of Bhutan are charming, warm and gracious and their generous hospitality makes a lasting impression on all those who visit.
