Bhutan warmly invites you to come and share in our cultural and geographical splendour. Discover why Bhutan is referred to as ‘The Land of the Thunder Dragon’ and ‘The Kingdom in the Clouds.’
Historically, Bhutan was a tiny medieval country isolated by natural barriers to the north and south and politically divided by regional factions. Under the blessed guidance of the Wangchuck dynasty, she has emerged as a peaceful and united country. Throughouther history, Bhutan’s traditions and rich cultural heritage, which have been safe-guarded by the visionary Monarchs from the Golden Throne, have been the central pillar of her unity and strength.
In 2008, Bhutan became the world’s youngest democracy. Significantly, democracyin Bhutan came about not by popular demand, but was conferred on the people by His Majesty the King. Currently, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) serves as the ruling government. Bhutanis the only nation in the world where the happiness of the people,Gross National Happiness (GNH), is prioritised over material development or Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
Bhutan opened her doors to the world in the 1970s. Every year, thousands of people from all over the world visit this ‘Shangri-La‘ and fall under her spell. When they leave, they do so half-heartedly, but with memories aplenty and a yearning to return soon.

The logistics of the trip proved to have been very thoughtfully planned, and the sights were excellent.Our accommodations were also outstanding, so congratulations on that aspect. We really enjoyed your selections of Bhutanese food for us, though I will not miss the hot green chilis(which I thankfully survived).
“We’ve just returned from the most fabulous holiday we’ve ever had. Bhutan Journeys proprietor Sonam Chophyel was totally professional from the first enquiry we made via email to waving goodbye at the airport when we left. Our trip was for almost 4 weeks and we traveled from West to East visiting cultural sites and weaving centres and bird watching. Ian got some fabulous bird photos including a Satyr Tragopan and Himalayan Monal while Annie experienced the most fabulous weaving. Hotels, food etc were all well above our expectations. Our guide Gembo and driver Mr Harka did excellent jobs enhanced by a good sense of humour. We’d recommend Bhutan Journeys to anyone wishing to experience this wonderful country.
Bhutan is one country which is still unspoiled despite having modern technology. Low-rise buildings are the norm in all the big towns. It is a place to go to for a really relaxed holiday overseas, and at the same time learn about the country’s culture and traditions. Bhutan Journeys can tailor your holiday according to your taste and needs. Our group travels all over the world, and Bhutan Journeys is one company that has really impressed us with its professionalism.
Thank you, Sonam and your wonderful team, for a most enjoyable and exhilarating time in Bhutan. We’ll be back to visit Eastern Bhutan when the airport there is ready.
