'Land of the Thunder Dragon' earned the name because of the fierce storms that often roll in from the Himalayas. Bhutan is tucked between China and India and is lanced by deep ravines and coated with thick woods. Monasteries often massive and commanding, abound; monks, when not in prayer or meditation or chores are often found playing board games, sharing stories or laughing. Ask any resident, and likely you’ll find out that they truly love their King and Queen.
Truly an unparalleled experience of 'HAPPINESS IS A PLACE'!
