Bhutan, in which, you could do this Bhutan Tour with Trongsa Extension, is a country in the laps of the Himalayan Mountains. It is a country, which lies surrounded by India to the west, south and east and the autonomous region of Tibet to the north. It is a landlocked country, which has evolved culturally, traditionally and religiously independent of external forces from the time it was there. Because of this, it has its own blend of doing things which are showcased in this Bhutan Tour with Trongsa Extension just as in any of the Bhutan Tours that you might undertake. Another reason why holidaying in Bhutan is a must and a should do a thing, is because the country has been doing things in accordance with the principles enshrined in its particular way of following Buddhism. This has made it the only country on earth that has a negative carbon rating, in which, it sequences all of the carbon it produces and others from its neighboring countries as well. Over sixty percent of the country is covered in forest and the remaining is used in sustainable farming means. In addition to this, it uses the philosophy of gross domestic happiness in contrast to a gross domestic product, which other countries use to measure economic growth. So much so, all the historical artifacts, monuments of the past and what is built at present is so well integrated into the natural landscape, that Bhutan Tour with Trongsa Extension would make you feel as if you are in a part of the world which is it’s own. Totally, different from what you might find elsewhere in guided tour holidays.
Holidays are made in Heaven, but this Bhutan Tour with Trongsa Extension is made in the Dragon Kingdom of Bhutan. The first part is getting into the country, which you do fly in by the National Carrier of the country, through some astonishing terrain which the Himalayas have to offer. There are snow-capped mountains and peaks to the north to view from the windows and lush green hills to the south of them with villages, valleys having fast flowing rivers and some cut so deep to form gorges. Then the rivers form the glaciers to the north of the High Himalayan mountains are all a part of what you see when flown in and out, at the end. Then the holiday, itself, within the country is a showcase of all it has coming from its long association with Buddhism, right from the Dzong (fortress made in different structural forms) made in their own unique ways to help in the defense of the country but basically serve as administrative blocks presently, Memorial Chortens made for different reasons to honour and dedicated to achievements of people and past kings, Monasteries made in various places so well integrated into the landscape making it seem a part of it, shrines and temples where spiritual people are honoured for what they had given society, however crazy they might have seemed. All of them made and formed with the architecture so uniquely which we can call Bhutanese. Then there are the valleys with different kinds of forest along with their flora and fauna meant especially for it and their form of agricultural practices using natural means and crafts that are indigenously made. All of this turns out to be a holiday not only to be done but also remembered for time to come.
