We visited Bhutan a couple of years ago and we had a great time. The scenery is wonderful, the people friendly and our tour guides (especially Tashi!) were terrific.

My first visit to Bhutan was with some French tourists. I am a french translator and we had good time in Bhutan with Journey2Shangrila. The service was good and excellent. We are looking forward to visit Bhutan again with Journey2Shangrila.

We were guided by Tashi Wangchuk on an amazing 10 day adventure to Bhutan with a group of 7 friends.
"It would be easy to portray Bhutan as a kind of model country, something out of a traveller's fantasy but it is a real country. In many ways, Bhutan is a perfectly modern place which is far ahead of its neighbours when it comes to governance, infrastructure, public services etc. Bhutan has managed, however, to retain a firm connection with its traditions and, in particular, with its religious culture. These aspects, which often appear to be in contradistinction to each other, are fully integrated in Bhutan. The famous dzongs (fortress-monasteries) are far from sterile monuments of the past; they continue to function both as religious institutions and as seats of public authorities. Visitors never "take over" a place of interest in Bhutan (as they, regrettably, do in so many other countries), they always remain as witnesses to a living culture: this makes for a fundamentally different travelling experience. It would seem like a cliche to say that Bhutan is an unforgettable experience but it is a truly special place. I think the first thing that everybody notices and the last thing that everybody cherishes is the clear air. As soon as you get out of the aeroplane, whether you arrive from Delhi, Calcutta or Kathmandu, you notice the quality of the air: you can literally see it. Everything is as though someone has adjusted a photographic lense to bring the world around you into a clear, sharp focus. This stays with you for your entire time in Bhutan."
