Bhutan- Land of the Peaceful Dragon. A perfectly ﬁtting, perfectly intriguing description of the country.
Deep in the heart of the eastern Himalayas lies the kingdom of happiness and peace, enthralling our imaginations with its serene ambience, picturesque landscapes, and tranquil demeanour.
This unique country has only been open to outsiders since the 1970s. While Bhutan is often considered a “little India” or compared to Tibet, its people are keen to maintain their unique national identity. They’re justiﬁably proud of their beautiful country.
Visit Bhutan with KareVoyage and make new friends you’ll cherish for a lifetime! With our group travel experiences, you’ll appreciate the camaraderie of fellow likeminded travellers, pace of travel, as well as the safety of a well-organized travel group as you set out to Bhutan.
