Spiritual Tours in Bhutan
Spiritual Tour in Bhutan refers to their country as DRUK-YUL or the Land of the Thunder Dragon. Druk means dragon and extends from the predominant Drukpa school of Tibetan Buddhism. Bhutan’s History parallels Buddhism’s spread in the Himalayas, and to properly understand Bhutan’s History, one needs to understand its religion. Bhutanese History is closely associated with its religion. Bhutanese History dates back to the 7th century.
Bhutan has managed to preserve its historical sites, culture, and environment, and some monasteries date back from the 7th century onwards. While at the threshold of the Millennium, the Bhutanese are more determined than ever to preserve their ancient culture and fragile environment. Spiritual Tours in Bhutan will be designed according to the interest of clients.
For Centuries Bhutan’s isolation and self-reliant national character kept the Kingdom outside the path of economic development. Although this seclusion prevented Bhutan from fully benefiting from many of the day’s medical, technical, and scientific advances, it also shielded the country from many of the detrimental side effects of poorly planned or haphazard development. As a result, Bhutan has emerged as a role model in preserving its culture and environment in “today’s world.”
Located in the heart of the high Himalayan Mountains range, Bhutan is a land-locked country surrounded by mountains in the north and west. The population of 620,000 comprises indigenous Bhutanese altitudes in the south, ranging from 1,000 to 4,500 feet. Altitudes in the more populated central regions range from 4,000 to 17,000 feet over the highest pass. The altitude of Thimphu, the capital, is 7,700 feet. The immense beauty of the Himalayas is contained in its diverse landscape.
Cascading rivers, conifers, wild rhododendron, blue poppies, long sweeping valleys, fields of maize, and tall imposing white-capped peaks are only a few poetic references. The land also changes with the strikingly different seasons. Bhutan has four distinct seasons. Spring is marked with unusual fauna, summer/monsoon, autumn brings clear skies and warm days, and winter is surprisingly mild, with only a few snowfalls yearly. Our tours help people to taste authentic Bhutan and interact with the innocent Bhutanese people.
