A magical land of breathtaking scenic beauty, ancient culture and traditions, Druk Yul (Land of the Thunder Dragon) is a secluded Himalayan country.
The northern region is an arc of glaciated peaks with an extremely cold climate at the highest elevations.
There are dense, deciduous forests and alluvial lowland river valleys.
There are breathtaking building, some clinging so precariously to steep hills that it seems impossible that human hands built them.
The country is Bhutan, a landlocked state in South Asia, nestled in the eastern Himalayan range between India and China. Bhutan is the only Vajrayana Buddhist nation in the world, and the profound teachings of this tradition remain well preserved and exert a strong influence in all aspects of life. This a country where progress is measured by happiness, and the simple lifestyles of the people reflect nothing but contentment.
