Bhutan, where this Bhutan Encompassed Tour takes place, is a country that lies to the east of Nepal just across the state of Sikkim in India. It is a landlocked country that has India surrounding three sides to the south and the autonomous region of Tibet to the North. The culture and tradition in Bhutan are so as it is a country that has always been independent of outsides forces and has evolved naturally from the Buddhist faith which it had adopted from the time of its being. So much so, that over the passage of time, it has built art and architecture in a natural environment that surpasses some of the finest forms that are yet there, all from its own sources. There are monasteries, temples, Dzongs (fortresses built at critical junctions of time), each and everyone having served some ways in the evolution of what Bhutan is today. In fact, it is a country, which has over sixty percent of its landmass cover with forestation. Making it the only country on earth which has a negative carbon rating. It also has food production which is one percent organic in nature. All of this stems from its philosophy coming from Buddhism, in which, it also takes gross domestic happiness as a metric to check how things stand in the country in contrast to gross domestic product which other countries around the world use. So much so making this Bhutan Luxury Tour of four days and five night or of any other Bhutan Tours, something to look forward to and to make your dreams come true, we make it happen.

They are magnificent all by themselves. Then there are the various Chortens used as memorials to commemorate the good time or the achievements all built in the inspiration given from its Buddhist faith.
