About Trip

The last remaining Himalayan kingdom, which has also recently become a democracy, Bhutan has much to offer its visitors, whether they are trekkers or seekers of culture and colour. With only one airport (Paro) serving the country, and a limited number of twisting mountain roads entering from India, access is restricted. It is also expensive, because of government regulations intended to reduce the number of tourists and the impact of tourism. In very recent years, Internet and television have arrived in the country and it remains to be seen how things will evolve in the future. For now it remains a colourful country of culture, where all nationals must wear their national costume, the gho for men and kira for women, and all new buildings are constructed in the same old style, with brightly painted designs on the walls and rooftops.
