The Simple Way to Travel to Bhutan.
Kuzu Zangpo La!
to travel to the Kingdom of Bhutan?
Travelling to Bhutan can be a challenging
if not an impossible one. The kingdom sits on “the roof of the world”,
remote and “off the beaten path”. Just a few decades ago, travelling to
Bhutan meant organizing an all-out expedition with long caravans of men
and pack animals. However, Bhutan has been opening her
door, albeit slowly– motor roads reached Bhutan in the 1960s, national
airline flew to other capital cities by 1980s and by 1999 computers in
monastic fortresses in Bhutan hooked on to World Wide Web.
So, with the marvels of modern communications, you can arrange your Bhutan travel right here online. Read on, whether you are an avid trekker or a cultural explorer, you will find complete Bhutan travel information - from Bhutan's unique visa procedure to booking a customized Bhutan trekking or Bhutan tour packages.
The Kingdom of Bhutan...one of the few places on earth well worth calling the "Last Shangri-La", remains high up in the Eastern Himalayas, far and away from the maddening world. Since the kingdom was virtually untouched well into the 1970s, the culture and traditions have remained intact to this day. Bhutanese people, a proud lot, are known for their hospitality and friendliness.
You can take a truly
wilderness trek amidst the majestic Himalayan peaks and
the unspoiled forests. Get up to the chirping sound of the birds, walk
along the wildflower-strewn footpaths and watch the sunrise over the
gleaming Himalayas. Witness
a traditional game of archery contested between rival villages. Vividly
decorated wooden targets hundred meters apart, powerful bamboo bows and
exquisitely crafted arrows. Archers breaking into spontaneous songs and
dances as they hit the mark. Come
soon and meet the gentle people whose culture and traditions are deeply
rooted in the Buddhist principles. Listen to the Buddhist monks chanting
ancient prayers in a monastery or observe a farming family go about their
daily chores in a bucolic homestead.
