The land of the Thunder Dragon 

Perched high in the serene reaches of the great Himalayas, lies a small mountain kingdom called Druk Yul. Fabled with mysticism, and adorned with incomparable natural beauty, this Land of the Thunder Dragon remained a land of mystery till it opened its doors to the world recently.

Bhutan is a land with a history of rulers dressed in a silken robes living in lofty castles clinging to the side of mountains. Of rivers  plunging through high mountain passing through valleys. Of winding trails through hill and dense forests of rhododendrons and wild orchids. Of exotic birds and animals. Of Dzongs and monasteries filled with the hum of monks reciting scriptures and of colorful houses dotting the landscape. Bhutan is like a trip to an entirely different world.  

This fairy tale land has the world’s greatest concentration of mountains. Purely a Buddhist kingdom, Bhutan is probably the last country on earth where modernization has not changed its centuries-old traditional culture.
