Description

Bhutan culture tour is a perfect holiday destination for those who look for peace and seclusion during their holidays. Nestling in the heart of the great Himalaya, Bhutan is still untouched by modernization. Bhutan is often referred as the "Land of the Peaceful Dragon" and is still regarded as one of the last Shangri la in the Himalayan region. Towns are tiny, little more than villages, with quiet streets lined by decorative shops and houses.
Himalayan Buddhism flourishes here, little changed by time, untouched by world events. Maintaining its own very special architectural traditions Bhutan's monastery-forts are incredible repositories of sacred texts and images, paintings and wall murals. Colorful prayer flags highlight natural and man-made features of the landscape, adorning houses and bridges; standing atop ridges and mountain passes and in forest clearings.
