Bhutan Valley Tour  
While you have been to Shimla, Kashmir, Kerela and other sought after Indian travel destinations, there may be few places which are still hidden under the canopies. Bhutan is a place that may not be on the 'Frequently Visited Places in India" list, but people who have visited the place need no testimonials of Bhutan's tranquil halo. For those who haven't been on the land of pseudo Shangri-La, let us embark on a brief journey to this compact place.

Under the covers of rich history, spiritualism and ethnicity, Bhutan offers a stimulating combination of imposing mountains (often clad with snow), placid sceneries and pleasant weather. Bhutan is known by several names like Land of the Thunder Dragon, Shangri-La, Bootan and Druk Yul. Each name contributes to its features, making it mystical and enigmatic.
