Bhutan is a landlocked remote kingdom nestling in the Himalayas between its powerful neighbors, India and China. The Bhutanese name for Bhutan, Druk Yul, means “Land of the Thunder Dragon” and it only began to open up to outsiders in the 1970s. Bhutan is a country where the rice is red and where chillies aren’t just a seasoning but the main dish. It’s also a deeply Buddhist land and you will find the Bhutanese well educated, fun loving and well informed about the world around them. It’s this blending of the ancient and modern that makes Bhutan endlessly fascinating. Bhutan boasts a wealth of bio-diversity with almost three quarters of its land area covered by forests; it has been declared amongst the ten most prominent areas for environmental protection in the world. There is the amazing Himalayan landscape, where snow-capped peaks rise above shadowy gorges cloaked in primeval forests. Up in prime positions in this picture-book landscape are the majestic fortress-like dzongs and monasteries. This unique architecture sets the stage for spectacular tsechus (dance festivals) attended by an almost medieval-looking audience. Then there are the textiles and handicrafts, outrageous archery competitions, high-altitude trekking trails, and stunning flora and fauna. The beautifulness here claims that if there is a heaven on earth, it is probably the Land of the Thunder Dragon.
