Bhutan Glimpses

Bhutan, the famed 'Shangri-La' and 'Land of the Thunder Dragon,' is small in size but colossal in beauty. Reckoned as the last great Himalayan kingdom, Bhutan is not only famous for its unmatched beauty but is also recognized as a spiritual epicenter of Buddhism, and the last remaining bastions of royal power. Besides, what makes Bhutan more fascinating is the fact that success is measured in Gross National Happiness. At every turn in Bhutan, you can find majestic fortress-like dzongs and monasteries against the backdrop of picturesque landscape, each having a unique story to tell. If you want to uncover the history of this beautiful land, enshrouded in magic, then this six-day holiday package is something you just can't afford to miss.

The trip to one of the most exhilarating places in the world, Bhutan, will cover the famous attractions of Western districts - Thimphu, Paro, Wangdue/Phodrang in just six days. Besides, a visit to the Taktshang Goemba (which translates as Tiger's Nest Monastery) is also included in the trip. Hugging a rocky cliff, Taktshang Goemba is one the most photogenic place and a famous landmark of Bhutan. Anyone with an interest in Buddhist culture will be fascinated by this 6-day adventure into the heart of Bhutan. For more details, you can go through the detailed itinerary mentioned below.
