Trip Overview

Bhutan is a remote & independent kingdom in the eastern Himalayas and the last bastion of Tibetan Buddhist culture and religion in its purest form. Despite opening up to tourism in the late 70's, it has managed to minimize the effect of outside influences and the country is virtually untouched, in terms of the environment, religion, architecture and lifestyle. Bhutan has the youngest reigning monarch in the world, King Jigme Singye Wangchuck, who guards Bhutan's culture and national identity fiercely.

It is a remarkable country and Aventure En Terre Himalayenne offers the opportunity to see, not only Bhutan's exquisite Himalayan scenery but to experience its rich and ancient tradition. Few people have the privilege of experiencing Bhutan and in the light of fragility of such a small nation and traditional culture in this age of superpowers this slice of an old world may, in future, be denied us
