Welcome to Bhutan
Welcome to Bhutan, traditionally known as “Druk Yul” or the “Land of the Thunder Dragon.” A tiny Buddhist Kingdom, comparably the size of Switzerland, is perched in the great Himalayas between its two giant neighbours, Tibet (China) to the north and the Indian States of Assam to the east, Arunachal Pradesh to the west and Sikkim & West Bengal to the south. Bhutan has been described as the last Shangri-La in the world, where few travellers have journeyed and is, today, one of the most sought after travel destinations. The country is slowly opening up to the modern world maintaining a fine balance with its ancient traditions. It promises you as an adventure like no other.
Bhutan opened its door to the outside world in 1970s and the Tourism of Bhutan officially started in 1974 with a unique policy of “high value, low volume tourism” upholding the nation’s vision of maintaining its pristine environment, centuries old tradition and culture intact. Bhutan has so much to offer and is not a difficult place to visit – you can simply buy a tour package or customized itinerary for an independent traveller, a couple or a group through a government approved Bhutanese tour operator, of which Bhutan Green Travel is one.
The Kingdom is blessed with breathtaking views of the Himalayan ranges, natural wonders, ancient villages, unspoilt vibrant culture, simple traditional lifestyle, deeply Buddhist religion and fascinating festivals. The country with 72 percent of the land under forest cover, pristine environment, is habitat to the rare and endangered flora and fauna. Bhutan is also becoming popularly known as the “Gross National Happiness” (GNH) country where GNH is considered more important than Gross National Product (GDP), which strives to achieve a balance between the spiritual and the material aspects.
