Overview

Discover the unexplored mountain kingdom of Bhutan, a magical country where the land’s worth is measured differently – think Gross National Happiness instead of Gross Domestic Product.   Bhutan’s beauty and wisdom are revealed at each dzong, every gompa and, most incredibly, in the eyes of every smiling Buddhist monk you meet. Enjoy gentle treks through remote trails and visits to Paro, Thimphu, and Punakha.  If you are a nature lover, photographer or culture junkie you will uncover a purity of culture, traditions, and kindness you didn’t know existed.
