1.Buddhism and daily life: Your visit to Bhutan will bring clear understanding of Buddhism as way of life. Indeed Buddhism is ingrained into Bhutan’s landscape, and daily life and activities. The prayer flags, prayer wheels,  chortens, bells, monks, Nuns, people's believe, everything would makes sense. Whole of Bhutan is dotted with monasteries some way up in the mountains. Local people visit them on the auspicious days with offerings. In general Bhutanese people are very religious and superstitious. In fact Buddhism is very much interlinked with daily life and activities. Every household would have a alter room and offerings are conducted on daily basis. Bhutanese believe in Karma, the cause and condition of every action good or bad that would lead to good birth or bad birth as the case may be which actually brings good heart in all.

Behind the mind set of every Bhutanese is the forgiveness that actually generates generosity and compassion pumping peace and prosperity all through. Having visited Bhutan your understanding towards your life will become more positive. Buddhism is not simply a religion but a true fact of reality. Bhutan encompasses and promotes this truth beyond imagination.

2.Unique Architecture blended with rich arts and crafts: Bhutan’s dzongs are the most striking architectural feature of the country in addition to the ancient royal palaces and many traditional homes of people. The new constructions cannot deviate from the traditional architectural design. Art work and craftsmanship are displayed in every walk of life and activities. No constructions are indeed finished without the touch of art works and craftsman skill. The rich textile design and unique flavor of dress codes along with quality painting of great thankas are some art work that you are gifted to see in Bhutan.

3.Rich Festivals and unique culture: Festivals or ‘tsechus’ are a major part of Bhutanese life and offer a unique cultural insight into this Himalayan Kingdom. They are colorful affairs with lots of masked dancing and bright costumes offering wonderful photo opportunities. It is said that everyone must attend a Tshechu and witness the mask dances at least once to receive the blessings and wash away the sins. One of the most memorable experiences of watching a tsechu can be the sight of Atsaras. Atsaras are clowns whose expressive masks and postures are an indispensable element in any religious festival. They confront the monks, toss out salacious jokes, and distract the crowd with their antics whenever the religious dances begin to grow tedious. Believed to represent Acharyas, religious masters of India, they are the only people permitted to mock religion in a society where sacred matters are treated with the highest respect.
One of the most wonderful characteristics of Bhutanese culture is the fact that there are no layers of social castes, unlike in many other countries, especially developing countries. Man and woman, rich and poor, powerful and weak, are all equal. Most elements of Bhutanese culture are part of the national etiquette called Driglam Namzha.

4.Gross National Happiness: Gross National Happiness is a truly unique and very Bhutanese idea. It is a more holistic approach to development and is drawn from the Buddhist belief that the ultimate purpose of life is inner happiness. It has been used to measure Bhutan’s development since 1972 when the fourth king proposed the idea. The assessment of gross national happiness was designed in an attempt to define an indicator that measures quality of life or social progress in more holistic and psychological terms than only the economic indicator of gross domestic product (GDP)

5.Unspoilt landscapes, the Trekkers paradise: Hidden in the folds of the Himalayas, Bhutan is a beautiful country, comprising of rolling hills, dense forests, and deep valleys steeped in Buddhist tradition and culture.
Though in general the Himalayan mountain ranges run parallel east to west but particularly in Bhutan most of them runs north to south giving way to the monsoon to enter deep interior and thereby more different landscape and much more lush green valley in spring and summer. Bhutan With the highest unclimbed mountain massif in the world as envisioned by the people and the king obviously trekking in Bhutan is beyond human desire.
Travelling through Bhutan, it is easy to take the picturesque valleys for granted, but as soon as you leave you realize just how pristine Bhutan is. Although Thimpu, the capital, has expanded, the towns are very small – over each pass you descend into another beautiful and unspoilt landscape. Bhutan, officially the Kingdom of Bhutan, is a landlocked state in South Asia located at the eastern end of the Himalayas. It is bordered to the north by China and to the south, east and west by the Republic of India.

One of the best ways to explore Bhutan is by foot. There are numerous day walks that can be arranged and for those who want to trek we are specialized in offering treks. Bhutan only has a fraction of visitors compared to most countries, with only a limited number of flights in and out of one airport. Visiting Bhutan you are able to experience a way of life that in the rural areas has largely remained unchanged for centuries. You may wish to visit a local farm or even stay in a simple traditional Bhutanese home. Bhutan has long maintained a policy of strict isolationism, both culturally and economically.
