Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan Tour - Big Prairie, OHThursday, 19 July 2012
There are many hidden Sangri Las like Mustang, Tsum Valley and Dolpo, which were restricted until very recently and are traveled by very few. Bhutan is another Himalayan Kingdom reflecting incredible geographical and ecological diversity. The Thunder Dragon kingdom of Bhutan is true mystical bliss enveloped in its natural splendor. This Himalayan paradise is still wrapped in a time, recollected by many as “those good old days”.
Tibet on the other hand is considered as roof of the world. It's altitude and remoteness isolated it from rest of the world, which has contributed to the creation of its unique culture. It's lofty perch high above the hurly-burly of the lowlands has shaped Tibet's other-worldly attitudes and discouraged even hardy colonists from establishing a foothold.
