Bhutan often revered as the “Land of the Thunder Dragon” or “Druk Yul”, is still regarded as one of the last “Shangri-La’s” in the Himalayan region because of its remoteness, its spectacular mountain terrain, varied flora and fauna, and its unique ancient Buddhist monasteries. Bhutan is no ordinary place. It is in the relatively unexplored pockets of Asia, which allows only a limited number of discerning travelers in order to preserve its fragile environment and culture in its magical purity.
Bhutan is a popular destination amongst tourists, especially from India. Tourism in Bhutan offers a variety of sightseeing and entertainment options. The wide range of Bhutan tourism packages provided by Travhoot allows the traveler to explore various Bhutan tourist places in comfort.
