Overview of the Bhutan Tour
Bhutan – happiness is a place! that is what their tourism slogan says! Today Bhutan is best known to the world as the last Shangri – la that has a rare combination of harmony and decree amidst a landscape of incredible beauty. It has also been known discreetly around the Globe and to most people it is a hidden kingdom shrouded in mystery.Bhutan is cradled in the deep folds of the rich Himalayas which offer the flora and fauna, dazzling white peaks and lush valleys with stunning beauty and aesthetic grandeur.An element that is crucial in understanding the Bhutanese people is by getting a basic idea about Bhutan Buddhism Idealism which is enriched by the essence of Drukpa Kagyu School of Buddhism.Bhutan is a tiny country that relies on farming and about 95% of the population are subsistence farmers. But this factor only has an added value and in present times Bhutan is classed as one of the most exotic destinations in the world.Bhutan has also made a name for itself for not having any traffic lights! It just adds a tad bit dynamism and this factor often arouses curiosity. Now they want to introduce only electric car and working towards becoming an organic county!
