Land of the Thunder Dragon | A journey through Bhutan

Bhutan has been on our must-visit list for as long as we can remember, and now at last, we have experienced the majestic mountain Kingdom. In the foothills of the Himalayas, Bhutan is home to an untouched landscape, rich Buddhist culture, a handful of luxury lodges, and one of the most peaceful nations on the planet  Gross National Happiness was the phrase first coined in the 1970s by country's fourth Dragon King.

Travelling from the capital Thimphu, to the valleys of Punakha, Gangtey and Bumthang, before returning to Paro with a helicopter flight over the cliffside monastery of Tiger's Nest, our time in Bhutan was utterly breathtaking and by far one of the most unforgettable destinations to discover.
