Bhutan Land of the Thunder Dragon


When I am asked where my favorite travel destination is, Bhutan is on the tip of my tongue. I first visited Bhutan in 1986 and have witnessed the transformation of this Himalayan Buddhist kingdom during frequent trips back. From the incredible Dzongs that adorn the countryside to snow capped sacred mountain peaks. You can hike to Tigers Nest (Taktsang) or beyond or lose yourself in the fine wall paintings illustrating Buddhist lore or the wheel of life or cosmic mandalas.The country is full of festivals celebrating their culture, diversity and all things wonderful that are Bhutan. Bhutan has it all for me from the sacred to the sublime to a government that promotes the philosophy of Gross National Happiness for all Bhutanese.
