Bhutan

High in the clouds of the majestic Himalaya Mountains lies the enchanting kingdom of Bhutan, the Land of the Thunder Dragon. This tiny landlocked state is a living museum with exquisite architecture and still intact Buddhist culture arousing visions of Shangri-la. As part of the silk route of central Asia, traders from exotic and far-flung lands have long spoken of the beauties of the land. This 17-day journey explores Bhutanese culture in pristine regions where the historical unfolding of the Buddhist tradition has been unfazed by the political upheavals that have ravaged nearby countries.

Here, amid cascading waterfalls and dense forests thrive a diverse flora and fauna with many species unique to the country. The grandeur and pristine beauty of nature finds its counter part in the life style of the Bhutanese. The pace of life is unhurried, and strongly influenced by Mahayana Buddhism, of which Bhutan is the last bastion. Religious festivals are very important in Bhutanese life and are raucous, joyous affairs. The dzongs, or fortresses, come to life with vivid color, a cacophony of music, and cheerful dancing as valley dwelling farmers and townsfolk, dressed in their finest kira (for women) and gho (for men), join together to exorcise evil spirits and rejoice in seasonal changes. Highlights of the trip include two festivals that emphasize the Buddhist culture of Bhutan

You will return home with lasting memories of stunning scenery, riotous pageantry, and beautiful, exotic architecture.
