THE LAND OF THE THUNDER DRAGON
The Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan is opening to the world after centuries of self-imposed isolation. It first opened to tourists in 1974 in very regulated manner upon the coronation of present Bhutanese King. This mountain kingdom is still perhaps the world's most exclusive destination. Due to the Royal Government's far-sighted policy to preserve the country's pristine environment and its culture, the harmful effects to industrialization and mass tourism on the environment and the traditional lifestyle of Bhutanese have been carefully avoided. This makes Bhutan truly unique destination. A country with majestic mountains, a unique cultural heritage preserved for many centuries, a landfill of warm hearted and friendly people, reveals a true paradise.
