If you are reading the tour overview already, there seems absolutely no reason for you to skip visiting the happiest place on earth. Perched up in the Himalayas between the large neighbouring countries of India and China, Bhutan remains to be the last Buddhist kingdom on earth. Bhutan takes pride in pioneering a philosophy of happiness, which in time must be adopted by all nations in order to restore world peace. Bhutan’s development is not measured in terms of its economic growth but on the growth of individuals’ well being, commonly referred to as Gross National Happiness (GNH). If you are tired of the bustling city life and need a little getaway into a world of marvels, forest greens and carbon-free air, there is no better place to be than in Bhutan. What awaits is an exciting 8-day tour in the stunning scenic view of the Himalayas together with a visit to a number of enchanting dzongs (fortresses) to experience a long-preserved and lesser known culture. If literature combined with a bit of history excites you then this tour also provides you with an opportunity to explore the vast collections of Buddhist manuscripts. Along the way also get acquainted with the national animal of Bhutan, the takin at the Takin zoo. Learn about the Bhutanese way of life at the National Folk Heritage Museum before taking on a beautiful trek to Dochula Pass to witness the many grand peaks of the Eastern Himalayas. Take a day off to go on a pilgrimage to Jambay Lhakhang and Chakhar Lhakhang among others. Conclude the tour by marveling at the beauty of the temple built by the Queen of Bhutan followed by an idyllic countryside-themed dinner in Paro.
