Bhutan Land of the thunder dragon ever green Bhutan
Bhutanese people have largely lived a life of isolation away from the rest of the world where western values have little or no impact here. The country has a wealth of culture and extreme charm, people are intensely religious which is very much in evidence throughout the Kingdom. In urban centers the spinning of prayer wheels the murmur of mantras and the glow of butter lamps are still important features of daily life.
Monasteries temples and religious monuments are dotted across the landscape where the importance of Buddhism can be seen in abundance, red robed monks, young and old, are everywhere mingling freely in towns and village markets.
Bhutan boasts a richness of Bio Diversity with almost three quarters of its land area covered by forest, it has been declared amongst the ten most prominent areas in the world for environmental protection . Its rich Himalayan flora and fauna, stunning snow capped peaks, lush valleys and rural landscapes never fail to impress. Bhutan is exclusive, expensive but very evocative. Its mystery never fails to attract those who have the means and the will to travel the journey back in time.
