Bhutan Travel Information
Bhutan, a purely Buddhist Himalayan Kingdom is unsurpassed in its scenic beauty and vibrant culture. The kingdom shares with Nepal the world's greatest concentration of mountains and living heritage of Buddhism. The fifty-minute flight from Kathmandu to paro can truly be described as a flight into fantasy. During the flight, a first hand close up view of Mt. Everest, Mt. Kanchenjunga and other famous peaks become reality. Bi-weekly flights (Mon/Thu) between these two Kingdoms have made it easier to travel to the long isolated Dragon Kingdom of Bhutan. Bhutan is one of the few countries in the world still untouched, a paradise for tourists interested in Buddhist culture and philosophy, flora and fauna, trekking and mountaineering. Due to the Royal Government's policy of controlled selective tourism, Bhutan receives less than 5000 tourists annually. Or… visit Darjeeling, mountain fortresses lush valleys and monasteries-popularly known as the "Queen of the Hills". On the slopes of the Darjeeling hills grow the best tea in the world and Gangtok, the capital city of Sikkim, is an awesomely beautiful land full of color.
