Bhutan (Thimphu 2N/Punakha 1N/Paro 2N)

5 Days

Bhutan is a landlocked country in South Asia. Located in the Eastern Himalayas, it is bordered by Tibet Autonomous Region of China in the north, India in the south, the Sikkim state of India and the Chumbi Valley of Tibet in the west, and Arunachal Pradesh state of India in the east and Assam in the south. Bhutan is geopolitically in South Asia and is the region’s second least populous nation after the Maldives. Thimphu is its capital and largest city, while Phuntsholing is its financial center.

The independence of Bhutan has endured for centuries, and the territory was never colonized in its history. Situated on the ancient Silk Road between Tibet, the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia, the Bhutanese state developed a distinct national identity based on Buddhism. Headed by a spiritual leader known as the Zhabdrung Rinpoche, the territory was composed of many fiefdoms and governed as a Buddhist theocracy. Following a civil war in the 19th century, the House of Wangchuck reunited the country and established relations with the British Empire. Bhutan fostered a strategic partnership with India during the rise of Chinese communism and has a disputed border with the People’s Republic of China. In 2008, it transitioned from an absolute monarchy to a constitutional monarchy and held the first election to the National Assembly of Bhutan, that has a two party system characterizing Bhutanese democracy.

Its really very nice experience to travel with before holiday. It is very difficult for anybody to trust on travel... agencies but U can trust before holiday team as they are giving very good service to their customers. Specially I would like thanks to Mr Abhiram who was our travel agent. Maldives is really very awsome place for honeymooners.We were there for 5 days and really enjoyed. I didn't invest much of my time in its planning..I had some time constraint too..But abhiram, did a great job..Set everything for me..All the quotes , tickets , place to stay and what to do n not to do..I just had to print my tickets and pack my bags..The trip was good..Memorable one..Just that my flight ,, Indigo,, got delayed during return journey.. Place is heaven..Perfect for holiday.. I would like to travel with before holiday once again in future.read more
