Family tour to Bhutan

We would like to extend our warm welcome to the land of extraordinary experiences. Hidden between two gigantic countries of the world, Bhutan is no less than a hidden treasure of the Himalayas. Bhutan inhabits a small population of 800,000 people which by comparison isn’t a lot, but it holds diversity in culture, architecture, geography, flora, and fauna. The utmost priority for the preservation of culture and tradition in Bhutan has enabled it to retain its unique identity. It is perhaps the only country in the world which is in pursuit of happiness.

After 1-2 hours of descent, we catch glimpses of the golden roofs of temples below and soon come upon the first of many on our way back from the wilds.
