Frazzled and paced out with a hectic lifestyle? Arrive in the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan to its pure, pure air and unblemished habitat fiercely protected by its people.
Monasteries with ancient sanctum sanctorum alive with legends of the past; unfrequented trekking trails that take you deep into the valleys; people who are happy walking the path of their ancestors – these are just wee glimpses into your rejuvenation experience. The country isn’t promoting tourism on a big scale and you will not be particularly seduced by its amenities. If you can visualize your visit as a privilege peek at pristine and protected land, you’ve got the essence!
Bhutan lies west of the Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh and east of Nepal. Thimphu, the capital, is at an altitude of 7700 feet, a small charming city in the heart of the Himalayas. Modernisation is strictly monitored and buildings must be made in the traditional Bhutanese style and cannot exceed a specified height. In fact, the first and the only traffic light was installed near a chorten (a small Buddhist temple) but was later removed upon the order of the king as not suitable to the environs of Thimphu.
