7 days Taste of Bhutan
 
Isolated from the outside world for centuries, Bhutan is opening her dramatic land and unique traditions to a few lucky visitors. A holiday in Bhutan is one of the few opportunities left that will expose you to an undiscovered destination that even the most seasoned traveler considers a privilege to visit.  Identified as one of the 10 bio-diversity hot spots in the world, the ‘Land of the Thunder Dragon’ has cautiously opened its doors to tourism.

Due to its pristine environment and harmonious society, the tiny Kingdom of Bhutan has been called "The Last Shangrila." Internal peace is valued here more than a craving for worldly pleasures, and harmony with nature is the supreme principle.

Few travelers have ever heard of Bhutan and much less have travelled here. Our short and sweet trip ‘Taste of Bhutan’ that provides a unique opportunity to experience a deeply spiritual world of elaborate temple-fortresses, ancient customs, and mind-boggling scenery.
