In the shadows of neighboring giants India and China, the Kingdom of Bhutan is impoverished, miniscule, and almost invisible. Rarely seen on a map, it is hidden to most of the world but within the majestic Himalayan mountains, you will find a country rich with ancient Buddhist culture, breathtaking scenery, men with skirts shorter than most women’s, religious symbols in the form of phalluses, virgin forests with rare species of animals and birds and a traditional architecture that is not based on any plans or drawings.
Others refer it to as Kingdom in the Sky, Shangri-La, The Dragon Kingdom, Land of Gross National Happiness or the Last Buddhist Kingdom but we at Gebpow Travel call it home. Let us share our home with you as we see it – without myth or mystery. We know we live in a beautiful place where people value compassion and happiness above all. There is no need for fancy words or packaging to sell our way of life – it is what it is – simple, honest and happy!
