The last paradise !
Known to the natives as Druk Yul (Land of the Thunder Dragon), Bhutan is regarded as the last paradise on earth. Its isolation, spectacular mountains, varied flora and fauna, ancient Buddhist monasteries, vibrant culture and mystic aura have mad it so.
Though small in size, the Kingdom’s topography is one of dramatic contrast. From the near-tropical southern border with India at an altitude of 300m, the land rises to culminate in the over 7000 m. peaks of the Himalaya in the north which form a natural frontier with the Tibetan region of Bhutan’s northern neighbor, China.
Lying in a valley (elevation 2,350 m.), Thimpu is unlike any capital in the world. The traditional architecture of its houses and building is particularly striking.
As a part of the Himalayas, Bhutan also offers unique trekking and mountaineering activities.
