The last remaining Himalayan Kingdom
The lush Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan brims with a wealth of natural beauty, vibrant culture, spiritual and historical attractions and intrepid adventure.
A striking and sacred space shrouded in myth, Bhutan is filled with grand examples of its extraordinary beliefs and traditional heritage, from the awe-inspiring architecture of its mountain forts and monasteries to the images of Buddhist religious figures painted or carved onto craggy rock faces. Observe frayed prayer flags fluttering in spectacular mountain passes, prayer wheels slowly turning with the current of clear mountain streams, and famous temples clinging to sheer cliff tops or majestically standing guard in its picturesque towns.
Offering a staggering variety of landscapes, as well as an incredible array of fauna and flora, Bhutan is set within one of the world’s most breathtaking mountain chains, famed for its high mountaintops and range of trekking opportunities. Blessed with its fascinating mix of natural habitats, from subtropical valleys to alpine peaks, Bhutan is also home to some exceptional, and endangered, bird and wildlife including black-necked cranes, Asian elephant, Bengal tiger, red panda, Himalayan black bear, Himalayan musk deer, Asiatic black bear, sloth bear, leopards and the gray wolf.
