The Sangrila Bhutan Tour

The Sangrila Bhutan TourHidden in the eastern Himalayas between India and China (Tibet), this tiny kingdom, practically unknown to the outside world, presents a most fascinating yet an untouched natural beauty, unique culture and ancient traditions. Bhutan is truly SHANGRILA, a mythical country hidden deep in the mountains for centuries isolated, inaccessible and forbidden, this Himalayan Kingdom cautiously opened its borders to curious visitors. Travelers to Bhutan will experience the enchantment of a pure and exotic land, through its ancient fortresses, monasteries and temples, with their imposing architecture and superb art, that dot the country side.
