last Shangri-La on Earth
Kingdom of Bhutan
is an exotic land of high mountains and lush valleys, snow-clad
peaks and crystal clear springs, a pristine ecology and an incredible
abundancy of wild life. Hidden in the eastern Himalayas between
India and Tibet, this scarcely populated country of a little
over half a million is the last surviving Mahayana Buddhist
state. Bhutan has remained a hidden Kingdom by choice for many
years. Today, it has opened its door to visitors, and a small
number of people are welcome to explore the Kingdom.
