Bhutan often revered as the ‘Land of the Peaceful Dragon’ is still regarded as one of the last ‘Shangri-La’ in the Himalayan region because of it’s remoteness, it’s spectacular mountain terrain, varied flora and fauna and its unique ancient Buddhist monasteries.

This journey offers the opportunity to see not only Bhutan’s exquisite Himalayan scenery but to experience it’s rich and ancient traditions in Thimphu, the capital, Paro – it’s second largest town. The other two districts of Punakha (the old capital of the kingdom) and Wangdi Phodrang (this valley is home to the rare Black Necked Crane, an endangered species which migrate from the Tibetan plateau in winter). Out of the 450-500 cranes in Bhutan 250-300 live in this valley.
