Bhutan - the land of the thunder dragon is also a land from a different time. Steeped in tradition and culture the only way to truly appreciate it is by visiting it. "The land of the Thunder Dragon" - Druk Yul, as its called in Tibetian is indeed, the Last Shangrila protected by the mighty Himalayas from the rest of the world. Bhutan is only country where the Monarch rule is still in existence and the Kingdom is blissfully untouched. Hidden in the Eastern Himalayas between India and Tibet and as big as Switzerland, but sparsely populated, Bhutan is as pristine as it gets.
