Bhutan - perhaps the last bastion of the Mahayana Buddhism in the Himalayas, located in the great Himalayan range has total area of 47,000 sq. feet. Bhutan is bounded by Tibetan regions of China in the north & the sweltering plains of India in the south. This mountainous kingdom is well defined by the name Last Shangri-La or Land of the Thunder Dragon. The remarkable feature of Bhutan is its varied climatic conditions ranging from the sub-tropical to the cold reaches of the almost 25,000 ft snow-capped mountain ranges of the Tibetan border.
Bhutan can be best considered as a paradise having population around 0.6 million only. Bhutan is, therefore, thinly populated country which follows Mahayana Buddhism. People of the Bhutan adopt traditional way of life & it is known for their UN-spoilt ancient cultures and traditions. Religion is still away of life & the past is still the present for them. In 1974, the Kingdom was opened for tourists by Jigme Singye Wangchuk, who is present king of Bhutan under a careful regulated programme. Prior to 1991, in Bhutan, the tourism industry was operated by government under one corporation. But in 1991, in order to regulate the industry, it was privatized partially with a Tourism Authority of Bhutan formed.

First opened to tourists in 1974 in very regulated manner upon the coronation of present Bhutanese King, this mountain kingdom is still perhaps the world's most exclusive tourists destination. Due to the Royal Government's far-sighted policy to preserve the countries pristine environment and its culture, the harmful effects to industrialization and mass tourism on the environment and the traditional lifestyle of Bhutanese have been carefully avoided. This makes Bhutan a truly unique destination. An unspoiled country with majestic mountains, a unique cultural heritage preserved for many centuries, an architectural style like no other, a landfill of warm hearted and friendly people, reveals a true paradise in the lost era of the present century.
