Lonely Planet Travel guide Bradley Mayhew, Anirban Mahapatra, Lindsay Brown Mar 2011
Bhutan, the Land of the Thunder Dragon, is no ordinary place. It is a Himalayan kingdom replete with myths and legends, where the best of traditional culture thrives and the latest global developments are enthusiastically embraced.
Inside this new-look guide…
Mystical mountains, visits to various dzongs and Buddhist gompas, nature trails, cultural interaction with local families and experiencing the pristine nature of Bhutan – The Dragon Kingdom.
Imagine a country where a land’s worth is measured differently—think Gross National Happiness instead of Gross Domestic Product. Now stop dreaming because you are in the unexplored mountain kingdom of Bhutan. Beauty and wisdom are revealed at each dzong, every Gompa and, most incredibly, in the eyes of every smiling Buddhist monk you meet. On gentle treks through remote trails and visits to Paro, Thumpu and Punakja, nature lovers, photographers and cultural junkies will uncover a purity of culture, traditions and kindness.
