Asia Tours: Bhutan

Bhutan is is a landlocked state in South Asia located at the eastern end of the Himalayas and bordered to the south, east and west by the Republic of India, and to the north by the People’s Republic of China. Bhutan is separated from the nearby country of Nepal to the west by the Indian state of Sikkim, and from Bangladesh to the south by the Indian states ofAssam and West Bengal.

Bhutan’s landscape ranges from subtropical plains in the south to the sub-alpine Himalayan heights in the north, with some peaks exceeding 7,000 metres (23,000 ft). Bhutan has a predominantly Buddhist population of 691,141, with Hinduism the second-largest religion. The capital and largest city of Bhutan is Thimphu.

Bhutan has resisted globalization and therefore has protected its strong Buddhist culture and way of life. There is little crime, a stable government and exceptionally friendly people. Since emerging from its isolation in the 1970‘s, Bhutan has embraced a policy of strictly controlled tourism and development. Bhutan offers sensational opportunities for Eco-friendly visitors and will continue to refrain from indulging in mass-market tourism, although a small increase in visitor numbers has been approved.

Beauty and wisdom are revealed at each dzong, every Gompa and, most incredibly, in the eyes of every smiling Buddhist monk you meet.
