Thimpu, situated at an elevation of 8,000 feet, is the least known and most exclusive of the Himalayan capitals. It also has one of the richest Buddhist histories in all the Himalaya. Its unique architecture echoes a mix of Nepali and Central Tibetan styles.
Bhutan often revered as the 'Land of the Peaceful Dragon' is still regarded as one of the last 'Shangrilas" in the Himalayan region because of its remoteness, it's spectacular mountain terrain, varied flora and fauna and its unique ancient Buddhist monasteries. It is in the relatively unexplored pockets of Asia which allows only limited number of discerning travellers to enter the country in order to protect its fragile environment and culture.
