Bhutan hiking tour
The small mountainous region between north-east India and Tibet retains its very own culture with its original Buddhist traditions, despite the increasing openness to modern influences in recent years. The region’s broad natural and biodiversity is also protected in a uniquely successful way. Two thirds of the country is still forested, and these forests are managed exclusively in an ecologically sustainable manner. A quarter of the national territory is also under special nature protection, and energy is generated exclusively by state-of-the-art hydropower plants. What some Western economists regard as “backward” due to the relatively low per capita income is enshrined in the constitution of the Kingdom of Bhutan as Gross National Happiness; this places the preservation of nature and the satisfaction of the inhabitants above economic growth. A state that we Europeans can hardly imagine – but which touches an inner longing in many people and makes the “Land of the Thunder Dragon” an increasingly desirable travel destination. Personal relationships make it possible for us to show you not only the important sights but also the genuine Bhutan off the beaten track and take you into the real life of the local people. Visit Buddhist monasteries with us in the midst of pristine, mystical forests and let yourself be enchanted by the legends surrounding these and other sacred places. Surrounded by secluded lakes, the air seems to vibrate with energy and the true recognition of the unity of all life anchored in Buddhism takes hold of our hearts. Many a steep climb rewards you with a breathtaking panoramic view over dark green valleys and mighty, snow-capped Himalayan peaks, a panorama that has remained unchanged for centuries. Complement your Bhutan vacation with this travel module to gain unique, in-depth insights into the country and strengthen your personal bridge to Bhutan in the long term.
