Buddhism in Bhutan

06 Nights & 07 Days


Bhutan’s high mountains hide in them, various mystical and calming vibes. Much of it comes from the chanting from the hilltop monasteries. Bhutan is home to Tibetan Buddhists and a sprawl of remarkable monasteries. Visit here to get oriented about the religion and get familiar with a number of tombs and memorials of saints who helped the religion spread in this part of the world. A trip to Bhutan alone, from the entire subcontinent, is an ample ode to the religion.
