The land of Himalayan Shangri La is perhaps the world's most exclusive destination due to kingdom's farsighted policy to preserve the country's pristine environment and its culture through controlled tourism. Bhutan with its unspoiled countryside, majestic virgin peaks, and unique cultural heritage preserved for many centuries and a land full of warm hearted and friendly people make this small Himalayan Kingdom very special. Recently they have been promoting happiness as a way of living. The sight of some of the most beautiful peaks in the world makes the trip an amazing experience.
