Land of the Thunder Dragon

The last paradise on Earth…indeed, it’s a title most fitting for Druk Yul, the Land of the Thunder Dragon, or Bhutan as we all commonly know it. Almost like a world in itself, this isolated kingdom is set apart from the rest of the world, and you’ll sense this blissful seclusion as you experience its verdant and picturesque valleys, the seemingly incessant fringes of mountainous terrain that border the land like a picture frame and the diverse flora and fauna.
