Bhutan has immense and exciting natural beauty, not yet modified by modernization that ranges from the lowland sub-tropical lands, to the pastures and mountains of the high Himalayas. The countryside is dotted with secluded villages, monasteries and temples over the rugged landscape that has hardly changed over hundreds of years. Moving across Bhutan from east to west across diverse ecological zones and environments also gives the traveler the superb opportunity to see variety of flora and wildlife in its natural habitat; besides visiting some of Bhutan’s most sacred pilgrimage sites. There is also a particular focus on traditional arts and crafts in such fields as woodcarving, paper making, weaving and dying of textiles using age-old techniques and taboos.
