Bhutan Trekking - The Druk Path

Bhutan is no ordinary place. It is the last great Himalayan kingdom, shrouded in mystery and magic, enough to fulfill your wanderlust.
Bhutan, the Land of the Thunder Dragon, sandwiched between Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh is a bewitching country full of quirky surprises. This is a country where the absolute monarch voluntarily and peacefully ceded power to the people, where wellbeing & happiness trump income & wealth or where forests can never cover less than 60% of the country by law.
