Travel to Bhutan with a specialized travel agency

Travelling to the last Shangri La is considered to be a once in a lifetime opportunity. Bhutan is a beautiful country with so much to offer, from the historic monasteries, to the mountainous landscapes, to the cliff top homes.

A trip like no other

A trip to Bhutan is not of the most common experiences. 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, is not your ordinary walk in the park. 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 Bhuddist culture carefully mixes with modern influences, and where the focus lies in Gross National Happiness. Visiting Bhutan is like visiting a different reality.

Bhutan’s sacred spirituality

Buddhists beliefs and practices are so deeply rooted in Bhutan that upon setting foot on this land, there is no way you will not become captivated by the spirituality. Writer Bradley Mayhew writes about his travels to Bhutan whereby on “one hike alone, a reincarnated lama blessed me with a thangka made from the nose blood of a saint and then hit me on the back with the stone footprints of a divine skywalker”. Experiences like these are not to be dismissed and you’ll find yourself enthralled in Bhutan’s reality.

The Last Shangri La?

James Hilton may well have been describing Bhutan when writing his novel Lost Horizon. Bhutan is a treasure land made up of Himalayan landscapes, where snow-capped peaks stand between valleys shrouded in primeval forests. Buddhist monasteries sit perched at staggering heights, creating the perfect viewing platform for the not to be missed dance festivals, which paint the country with colour and music. The people and their trade and crafts are iconic to this country of wonder, again perfectly combining their unique traditions and modern influences. Don’t be surprised to see a monk check his smartphone after performing a divination!
