Bhutan, known as the “Land of Thunder Dragon,” is situated in the lap of Eastern Himalayas between India and the People’s Republic of China. The capital of Bhutan is Thimpu. It is also known as “The Last Shangri La” on earth embracing an area of 18000 sq. miles, the tiny Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan is one of the most secluded nations in the world. Panoramic mountain terrain, diverse flora and fauna, and unique ancient Buddhist monasteries have made Bhutan a model tourist destination. Bhutan is presented with rich bio-diversity securing around 300 medicinal herbs and 165 endangered species. It has its own unique historical, geographical, cultural, traditional and religious significance that makes it apart from the rest of the world.

Bhutan is known to the natives as Druk Yul (The land of the Thunder Dragon) and is regarded as the last paradise on Earth. The isolation, magnificent mountains, different flora and fauna, ancient Buddhist monasteries, vigorous culture, and mystical aura have made it so. It is small in size. The kingdom’s topography is one of the climactic diversity from the near-tropical southern border with India at an elevation of 300m. The land arises to culminate in the over 7000m peaks of the Himalaya in the North which form a natural frontier with the Tibetan region of Bhutan’s Northern neighbors China.

There are many astonishing sites to observe in Bhutan, such as Memorial Chorten (dedicated to the late King Jigme Dorji Wangchuk), Traditional medicine Hospital, Paro and other places like Bumthang, Thongsa, Punakha, etc.

Visiting Bhutan was a dream come true!

5.0 rating
February 24, 2020

Since childhood, I have always wanted to go to Bhutan, the country of Gross National Happiness. In Kathmandu, we searched online for a travel company to organize our trip and we came across a Blue Lake Travel and Tours in Nepal.
They organized a 7-day trip for us and we were able to go to Bhutan after our Nepal trekking which was from a time perspective ideal.
Because of the tourist fee traveling to Bhutan is expensive but we think that it is totally worth it since it is an all-in package.
In Bhutan Mr. Yonten and Mr. Wangchuk were our guide and driver and they are true ambassadors of their country. They were very people-oriented and kind making sure we were having a good time, we laughed a lot with them! The Bhutanese are very aware that people have to pay a lot of money to come and visit their country and they do what they can to give excellent service, we have experienced that over and over again during our trip.
Mr. Yonten our guide explained a lot about his country and about buddhism. We visited Thimpu, Punakha and Paro and on day 4 we hiked up to Tiger’s Nest which was amazing! Apart from that we loved the food (a lot of veggies!) and the accommodation!
We truly had the best of times in Bhutan and we were so sad to leave…
Thank you so much for organizing our trip on such short notice! And a big thanks as well for Yonten and Wangchuk for this unforgettable experience!
