Tucked between India and Tibet and hidden among the towering Himalayas, Bhutan packs a lot within its 14,000 square miles! Photographers will fall in love with the small Buddhist-country’s abundant wildlife, ancient architecture, and striking landscapes. Imagine snow-capped peaks, a scene of serene yaks grazing in mountain meadows, or the graceful flight of a black-necked crane against the stark white sky. Others will feel at peace among the various dzongs (fortress Buddhist monasteries) as they climb high into the mountains to experience the solitude, reverence, and peace that centuries of monks have sought out. And every visitor to Bhutan will be delighted by the elaborate tsuches (religious festivals) held throughout the year – complete with colorfully masked dancers, drums, and large crowds of gathered locals.
Today, independent travel to Bhutan is restricted, and group travel arranged through a state-licensed office is the only way to visit -- making this real-life Shangri-la nearly as elusive as the revered snow leopard that lives here.
