One of the more populations offered by High and Far, Bhutan, is a landlocked country bordered by China and India. The destination is repleted with pristine nature, gentle people and is the jewel of the Himalayas. Bhutan’s unique culture,which is deeply steeped inits Buddhist heritage, is by far the country’s most appealing feature. The Kingdom of Bhutan, also known as “The Land of Thunder Dragon,” has been an important centerpiece for the Buddhist religion. In fact, when Tibetan king Songtsen Gampo, a Buddhist convert, extended the Tibetan Empire into Bhutan, he ordered the construction of two Buddhist temples at Bumthand in central Bhutan and at Kyichu in the Paro Valley (Taktsang Monastery).
Far and High Adventure’s itineraries take travelers on a guided hike up to the Tiger’s Nest (Taktsang Monastery), one of the most important Buddhist sites in the world. This sacred monastery is believed to be where Guru Rinpoche arrived on a flying tigress. Visitors can also immerse themselves in Bhutanese culture by attending one of the many festivals, or Tshechus, thrown at various temples, monasteries and dzongs across the country. The Tshechu is mainly a religious event celebrating the birthday of Guru Rinpoche. Tourist who are fortunate to attend will be inspired by the masked dancers, depicting incidents from as long as the 8th-century.
