The silence of Hidden Kingdom.......

The Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan is fast emerging from centuries of self imposed isolation. First opened to tourists in 1974 in very regulated manner upon the coronation of present Bhutanese King, this mountain kingdom is still perhaps the world’s most exclusive tourists destination. Due to the Royal Government’s far-sighted policy tobh2 copy.jpg (15411 bytes) preserve the countries pristine environment and its culture, the harmful effects to industrialization and mass tourism on the environment and the traditional lifestyle of Bhutanese have been carefully avoided. This makes Bhutan a truly unique destination. An unspoiled country with majestic mountains, a unique cultural heritage preserved for many centuries, an architectural style like no other, a landfill of warm hearted and friendly people, reveals a true paradise in the lost era of the present century.

Pema Lingpa lineage at Gantay Gompa and small beautiful active Gompas at Gogona are worth visiting. The

Chomolhari Trek

There is very little tourist traffic on the pristine trekking routes in Bhutan. This is primarily a positive off shot
of  the Bhutanese Government’s policulimiting tourist to four thousand a year. Naturally one has the pleasant
sensation of breaking fresh ground on treks in Bhutan.

The Chomolhari trek follows the crystal clear trout rich upstream trail of Paro Chulalong the verdant Rhododendron canopied forest and salubrious green alpine meadows. Mt. Chomolhari, having one of the most beautiful peaks in East Himalayas, stands at a magnificent 7300 meters with age old frontier forts and

Snowman Trek:

Diverse flora and fauna. The bluesheep and the takin can be spotted on this trek. This area is one of the most
unique in the country. The snowman’s trek is very difficult compare with other trek.

Bicycle Tour - across Bhutan Bhutan’s mountainous terrain’s offer a fascinating adventure for bicycling
enthusiast. The route along Bhutan’s West-East Highways (appx 600kms) is an exciting route with challenges
of surmounting a new pass over 3000 meters every day. The highways winding up an shown mountains with
drops of thousand of feet keep one too high an adrenaline to feel the slightest pinch of monotony.

As one progress along the route, there is a discernible change in the flora and temperature when one gradually descends, from the aping height, into the temperate regions of the east. All along the route the interruption by picturesque, and almost medieval, villages and towns rich in cultural spots make a welcome diversion.
