If you are looking for amazing culture and real place for peace where past is still the present, and Buddhism is part of daily life then your choice is Bhutan where beautiful nature, clean environment, diverse flora and fauna, rich culture in traditional environment vibrates in the commotion of the modern world.

The flight from Kathmandu fly toward the eastern Himalayas through the green hills known as Duars or gateways (In India). As you approach Bhutan the plains of India rise higher as your flight travel north towards the Tibet border. The land mark of Bhutan are the rushing silvery rivers along the valleys, waterfalls in the forest and mountainsides, and the great snowcapped peaks in the north that extend to Burma and farm houses that dots the hillsides.

As the aircraft enters the Paro valley when you look down you would see Paro Dzong on the hillside overlooking the Paro Chu (river), with Ta Dzong above it. After completion of your arrival formalities, proceed to Paro or Thimphu. The road runs down through the Paro valley to Chuzom (confluence) at the entrance to the valley, where the Paro and Thimphu rivers meet. Three chortens (stupa) on the riverbank at this place, each in a different style, mark the confluence of the two rivers.

Shortly before you reach Chuzom you would see on your left side Tachogang Lhakhang, "the temple of the excellent horse". It is a private temple, built in the 15th century. The road passes along a narrow valley with high rocky cliffs on the left, after that the valley opens out into farmland as you approach Thimphu.  

Taktsang Monastery is brand image of Bhutan. You need to do a day hike to this view point. Horses can be arranged with an additional payment or prearrangement. The uphill hike takes about 2 to 3 hours through villages and pine forests. The monastery appears to cling to a huge granite cliff 800 meters from the Paro valley. It was devastated by fire in 1998 but restored to its original shape. It is believed that the propagator of Buddhism in the Himalayan belt, great saint Padmasambhava, came to Bhutan in the 7th century on a flying tigress and meditated in the cave for 3 months. The demons were subdued and he spread Buddhism in the Paro valley. During the end of the 17 century a monastery was built on the spot where the saint mediated. Thus this is a pilgrimage site for all Bhutanese to visit once in their life time.

Tour in Bhutan is expensive indeed! The Bhutanese authority boasts that it is privilege to visit Bhutan. They have chosen to keep Bhutan a hidden paradise despite globalization where happiness is their goal but not at the big expense of economic development. Thus the government policy is ‘controlled tourism.’ They strongly believed their past practice and unique culture is the pillar to protect the society that has a population of 672,425 from the adverse effect of international exposure.

With a relatively small population of 600,000, people in Bhutan enjoy a sustainable lifestyle, which they inherited from their forefathers. Buddhism, prevalent in the country since the 7th century, respects all forms of life and considers them sacred. The natural elements of the earth: wind, water, rocks, trees, lakes and mountains are seen as the abode of gods and goddesses and spirits and demons. They are believed to punish, with death and disease, those who disturb and pollute their domain.
You travel through some of the most beautiful valleys in western Bhutan, where the trekker comes in contact with several remote villages and monasteries. As in the Journey to Drukyul, this tour is concentrated in the western region of the country with the addition of a visit to the beautiful Gangtey valley, one of the main winter homes to the rare blacked necked crane. The birds fly south to the area from Mongolia during winter months to escape the harsh climatic conditions there. The birds arrive in early November and leave for the north by March.
