Bhutan: The last Shangri-La
Bhutan. Its the land where the time stands still, the nature and religion combine to maintain the tiny Buddhist kingdom as the last Shangri-La. Sandwiched between Tibet and India, Bhutan is the pearl of the Himalayas. Virgin peaks rise up to 25,000 ft to the north of the kingdom and beneath steep glacial walls, alpine highlands fall to misty forests. Mountain streams cut through gorges on their way down to warmer valleys and wide marshes in the heart of the kingdom.
One distinct landscape drops to the next before finally descending to the jungle and grasslands of the southern plains. To those people who have accustomed to this domain of extremes and have always led their life with the principles of Mahayan Buddhism, Bhutan is a paradise on earth where respect for life, in all its many incarnations, endures like the land itself.
