Renowned as the World’s Happiest Country, Bhutan is one of the last iconic Buddhist Kingdom that is immensely rich and protected in ancient tradition and culture.
Nestled in the eastern Himalayas between the hustle and bustle of China and India, the Himalayan Kingdom has been shrouded in enigma after centuries in isolation. As one of the last countries to open up its doors to the world, the remote Kingdom of Bhutan with its carefully preserved landscape and forestry, has been particularly sought after for its natural beauty, large biodiversity, vibrant Buddhist heritage and calmness.
Be surrounded by Bhutan’s lush greenery with beautiful valleys coming to life in the blossoming of ethereal and colourful florals, rich biodiversity, and unique wildlife. Stand in awe at the majestic view of the Himalayan peaks and embark on comfort treks and hikes in the crisp, cool temperatures to Bhutan’s most famous pilgrimage site, the Tiger’s Nest Temple (Taktsang Lhakhang) and while exploring the unique Buddhist architectures (Dzong).
Immerse in Bhutan’s culturally authentic ceremonies such as the intimate butter lamp ceremony with the monks of Gangtey Goemba and partake in festivities the likes of Tsechus and Dromchoes with a showcase of culturally sacred dances.
Wherever you are in Bhutan, its tranquillity and blend of ancient and modernity will continue to fascinate endlessly in every step of the journey.
Bhutan is best visited in the seasons of spring (March to May) where the valleys and forests regains its greenery and blooms, and autumn (September to November) where clearer skies and the cool temperatures provide a better visibility of the Himalayan peaks and comfortable trekking.
