Glimpse of Bhutan Tour is best way to explore Bhutan in 4 days. Bhutan is known as the land of the thunder dragon and has often been referred as the last Shangri-la, land of wonderful people.
The Buddhist Kingdom of Bhutan, nestled in the heart of the great Himalayan range, is one of the world’s most beautiful travel destinations.
Bhutan is also known as Druk Yul meaning "The land of thunder dragon". It is often described as last Shangri-la.
This tiny Himalayan kingdom hosts a remarkable variety of climates and ecosystem, almost 72% of it under forest cover, high mountain terrain and deep fertile valleys. We have arranged this Glimpse of Bhutan tour in a way that would provide participants with opportunity to interact with the people of Bhutan and experience the Bhutanese way of life in its undiminished natural form.
A glimpse of a magical world where past and present merge, where traditions live and where the spiritual and material are undistinguished and indivisible aspects of every facet of life.
