Bhutanís remarkable natural landscape dotted with pastoral hamlets enchants the few visitors allowed to this tiny Buddhist kingdom. Discover magically diverse landscapes, where towering crags and sparkling snow peaks stick out of impossibly green rolling hills, deep valleys and thick, intact tropical forests. Meet the hospitable Bhutanese, whose traditional dress is only one way in which they celebrate their rich culture. Visit villages, fortresses, elaborately carved buildings, and the Tigerís Nest, a famous hermitage that clings to a sheer cliff face. Experience first-hand the allure of Bhutanís rugged beauty, and its countless pilgrims and philosophers.
