  • Bhutan

Alandscape and even more people greet you as you come to Bhutan. This small country nestled in the lap of the Himalayas is a visual treat. Bhutan tours are a great option if you happen to be touring India's North Eastern states like Sikkim, Tripura, Assam, or Arunachal Pradesh. There are plenty of stunning monasteries all over Bhutan since the nation is largely Buddhist. In addition, there is breathtaking scenery to enjoy as the Great Himalayan Range runs along Bhutan. So do the Shivalik hills and many other prominent peaks and mountains.

One can observe during Bhutan tours that the nation sports an interesting form of traditional architecture, and all buildings conform to this design pattern. This makes Bhutan uniformly beautiful and also a great place for photography with no buildings or establishments that act as eyesores. Thimphu is the capital and largest city of Bhutan. Its major tourist attractions are National Folk Heritage Museum, Trashi Chhoe Dzong, National Memorial Stupa, Textile Museum, and the Changangkha Temple. This is truly a city not to be missed.Airfares to/from Bhutan.
