What fascinates me about Bhutan is that this enclave in the heart of the Himalayas is totally preserved. The most ecological country in the world with a negative carbon footprint and more than 70% of its territory covered with virgin forest, Bhutan is a land of legends conducive to exceptional travel. When you travel to Bhutan you will surely get a taste of the magic of this country.

Far from mass tourism, a trip to Bhutan introduces you to the secret culture of the Himalayas, largely inspired by China and India. Bhutan was the first country in the world to measure its Gross National Happiness and you can therefore expected a warm welcome from a country renowned for its legendary hospitality. During your stay in Bhutan you go from smiles to encounters and live what few travellers before you have had the chance to discover. From Paro to Punahka via the capital Thimphu or the famous Chele La Pass, a variety of landscapes is guaranteed when you travel to Bhutan!

A trip like no other

A trip to Bhutan is not your typical holiday. Nestled in the paths of the Himalayas, Bhutan is a land of mystery that few Westerners have had the opportunity to experience. This country, which is like a bridge linking the past with the future, will certainly impress you with its authentic traditions. While treading lightly in the modern world, the kingdom has maintained its traditional ancestral culture. Bhutan is no ordinary place: it is a land of mystery and magic, where Buddhist culture carefully mixes with modern influences, and where the focus lies in Gross National Happiness.

Few visitors have been able to discover and explore Bhutan, a country that has preserved its authenticity despite the progress of economic development. The kingdom of happiness takes pride in having managed to maintain its oldest traditions and ancestral rites, which is what charms you when you travel to Bhutan.

Go trekking in Bhutan

Trekkers and nature-enthusiasts will be enchanted by the serenity of Buddhist monasteries, local fauna and flora, eternal snows, dzongs (fortress-monasteries) and valleys. These elements together ensure a memorable trip to Bhutan. At the top of the Himalayan mountains, charmed by unforgettable human encounters, surprising dance performances and the delicacy of the language, you will discover a new world, protected from outside influences, when you travel to Bhutan. Do not miss the many festivals of Bhutan that take place in the most beautiful dzongs of the country and rejoice in the opportunity to immerse yourself in the heart of the Himalayas.
