VISIT BHUTAN 2017 with a  BRAND - " happiness is a place"....is a unique opportunity for international clients to visit Bhutan, coinciding with the 62nd birthday of our His Majesty the King - Jigme Singey Wangchuk.  Bhutan is a tiny landlocked Himalayan Kingdom, almost the size of Switzerland in Europe and about half the size of the state of Indiana in the USA. It has an area of 38,394 sq. km, sandwiched between two giant neighbours - China in the north and India in the south. Bhutan lies between 27 30 N longitude and 90 30 E latitude. It has a population of 691,141 (Statistical Year Book of Bhutan - 2016). There are many local dialects in different provinces of central, southern, western and eastern regions of the country.

Bhutan’s present travel status comes as no surprise, given that this tiny Kingdom, was zealously sequestered from the rest of the world for centuries. The door to this mythical Buddhist Kingdom was opened to limited tourism only two decades ago.  Travel to Bhutan is still regulated through a policy of high value tourism and hope it will continue to be so in a long time to come.
 
Although Bhutan has a relatively small land mass, the wide geographical or topographical variation gives Bhutan  its typical climatic characteristics and four distinct seasonal patterns. The southern plain which is close to the Indian border, has a sub tropical type of climate that has very pleasant during winter season. 

The mid upper central valley has mild temperature with cooler seasonal months. The alpine in the northern, has much chillier weather throughout the seasons. The four climatic seasons are Winter (December to February), Spring (March to May), Summer (June to August) and Autumn (September to November). The physical features stretch across all climatic zones from sub-tropical vegetation in the south with an altitude of 200m to 300m to moderate height of 2,000m to 2,500m in the central region. There is also a much higher alpine zone with the Himalayan ranges with glaciers perennially. These give spectacular views to visitors in Bhutan. The Bhutanese people are good natured, friendly and fun loving. 

The ruggedness of the terrain and remoteness of the valley have led to the settlement and formation of many scattered communities throughout the country. 

The broad classification of local dialects are: Dzongkha in south western region (also the national language of Bhutan), Khengkha or Bumpthapkha by central region people, Sarchopkha in the east and Nepali in the southern part of the country. The capital city of Bhutan is THIMPHU, located at north western part of the country, where all the Ministerial organizations and UN House are based. Although the state religion of the Kingdom is Mahayana Buddhism, people in the eastern part of the country follow Nyingmapa sect of Buddhism. The Karmapa sect is widely practiced in the western region. The Nepalese or Lhotshampas (southern Bhutanese) in the southern foothills of the country are predominantly Hindus. 

The natural environment is mostly undisturbed and in pristine form today. With a national goal of maintaining 60% of the country under forest cover at all times to come, the scope for Bhutan’s rich biodiversity is very secure. Currently, about 70% of the country is under forest cover and 26% as protected areas, (National Parks and Biological Corridors), enabling harmonious existence of the Eco-system.
