Bhutan – natively called ‘Druk Yul’ (Land of the Thunder Dragon) is regarded as the lost paradise on the earth. Its isolation, spectacular mountains, wide range of flora and fauna, age-old Buddhist culture, vibrant traditions with mystic aura have made it a real ‘Land of the Thunder Dragon’.
Although Bhutan is small in size (47,000sq.km. with a population of 600,000), its topography offers dramatic contrast, ranging from its southern border of 300m, to the height of 7,000m in the north, where the Himalaya borders with the Tibetan plateau of China. It is encircled by the Indian states of West Bengal and Assam in the south, and Arunanchal Pradesh in the east.
Bhutan is a magical little Buddhist kingdom of enchanting people set high up in the Himalayas between India and China. Bhutan was untouched by the outside world until just a few years ago when television and internet were finally allowed in; visiting the country still feels like going back in time and entering another universe far, far away. Remote Lands immerse you in Bhutanese culture by providing the visitor access to private events and extraordinary people.
