OVERVIEW

A visit to the small Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan is a rare opportunity to experience a very different culture in its beautiful natural environment, and, at the same time to grow through the experience.

As a country, Bhutan has remained independent throughout its history and was isolated from the outside influence for many centuries and remained largely unknown to the rest of the world until it opened its doors in the early 1960s. Bhutan has immense and exciting natural beauty, that ranges from lowland subtropical lands to the pastures and mountains of the high Himalayas.
