The only Mahayana Tantric Buddhist kingdom in the World

The tiny kingdom of Bhutan opened up to tourism in 1974. A devoutly Buddhist kingdom and also called "Druk-yul" or the land of the thunder dragon, it is a land steeped in religion. Ancient Dzongs (fortresses) stand sentinel in calm valleys through which flow serene Himalayan rivers. Take part in a cultural tour and witness teschus (festivals) giving you a chance to take in the Buddhist rituals in Bhutan. Trekking is the best way to see Bhutan. High passes which once carried traders between Tibet and Bhutan cut through the mountain ranges. Glaciers tumble down slopes creating mountain top lakes and fast flowing rivers that rush through narrow gorges and wind through lush valleys.

Best season: April to May and September to December.  For Bhutan Festival dates, and Druk Air flies scheduled flights to and from Paro to Delhi and Calcutta (India), Kathmandu (Nepal), Dhaka (Bangladesh) and Bangkok (Thailand) please e-mail us: info@adventuresworldwide.com
