Bhutan is the only Vajrayana Buddhist nation in the world, and the profound teachings of this tradition remain well preserved and exert a strong influence in all aspects of life. Due to its pristine environment and harmonious society, the tiny Kingdom of Bhutan has been called "The Last Shangrila."
The Country has developed the philosophy of Gross National Happiness, whereby development is measured using a holistic approach of well-being, and not just based on gross domestic product. Farming is one of the main income sources of the people there.
The 8 days itinerary takes you through the beautiful landscapes, and amazing culture of the mesmerizing country that Bhutan is. The stark difference between India and Bhutan can be observed at the border town Phuentsholing, and going further in, you will notice the forest cover that this amazing country holds and preserves.
While most of the beauty of Bhutan comes without too much effort, there is trekking to Taktsang (Tiger's Nest) monastery, which is slightly tough, but totally worth every step you take and every drop of sweat you break. Heading to explore the capital city Thimphu after that, and further north into Punakha, you will be amazed by how much beauty, peace, and happiness this country has in store for you.
