Called by the Bhutanese by the name of Druk Yul, translated in English as The Land of Thunder Dragon, Bhutan is a small landlocked kingdom sitting on the lap of the Himalayas where cultural essence of Buddhism still survives as it existed in the past. Buddhism expanded as the major religion in Bhutan after 747 A.D. when Padmasambhava (also found being called the Second Buddha in some ancient writings) travelled to the country on the invitation of the then local rulers.
In particular, Bhutan is known to the world for its geographical, biological and cultural richness. Bhutan has rightly been identified as one of the ten biodiversity hotspots in the world which is a glowing testament of its rich diversity. The Bhutanese have preserved their biological environment as they have preserved their rich cultural heritage and visitors who wish to spend holiday in Bhutan can witness that first hand.. Bhutan adopts a controlled and sustainable tourism approach and so spending a holiday in Bhutan also becomes a privilege. If you want to travel to Bhutan, you need to be either a guest of the Bhutanese government or a traveler registered with an approved travel agent/program.
Holiday in Bhutan include, but is not limited to, trekking in the Druk Path and Snowman trekking route, kayaking down the Mochhu river, beholding the rich cultural celebrations in many colorful festivals Bhutanese celebrate, visiting the majestically built and painted Monasteries, and enjoying the scenic view of the majestic mountains.
