Natural Jewels of Bhutan & Nepal
A Soulful Journey Through the Cultural and Wildlife Treasures of Two Himalayan Kingdoms
The Kingdom of Bhutan is one of the world’s little-known treasures, where quality of life is measured in terms of Gross National Happiness, rather than purely material measures. Till recently, the “Land of the Thunder Dragon” has remained in splendid isolation, dedicated to preserving its deep Buddhist traditions and pristine landscapes. A journey among ancient monasteries, Himalayan peaks, glacial rivers and peaceable villages reveals this mythical country’s singular beauty. Geographically diverse Nepal contains the world's highest mountains, subtropical forests and captivating cultures. 4x4 drives and elephant-back safaris reveal Nepal's rich wildlife as we search for sloth bears, leopards, rhinos and elusive Bengal tigers that roam wild through jungle lowlands.
