Welcome to the land of thunder dragon. Bhutan is a landlocked Kingdom in the eastern Himalayas, which opened its doors to the world only during the 1970s. The unique culture and rich age old traditions preserved by the Bhutanese people are an extraordinary sight the world should experience. Many People view Bhutan as an experiment of sustainable change. This is conveyed by the tourism policy of “high value, low volume”. Even as Bhutan accepts the realities of globalization, the world appreciates the need for humanity to preserve its socio-cultural, environmental and spiritual heritage. Therefore, in Bhutan progress is not measured by Gross Domestic Product but by Gross National Happiness. The Gross National Happiness philosophy of the country which was envisioned by His Majesty the Fourth Druk Gyalpo Jigme Singye Wangchuck, who stated that “Gross National Happiness is more important than the Gross National Product”. For those who know Bhutan it is both a nostalgic effort to preserve the past and an exciting attempt to step into the future.
Bhutan, country of Guru Rinpoche. Apart from the beautiful landscape, the fascitating people and the sightseeing points that take your breath away, there are many places, that words can barely describe. Many high practitioners and Lamas have meditated here, for months and years. In this incredible powerfield many of our buddhist friends feel that they would love to travel at a lower pace but go into more depth whereever they come.
Our spiritual tour is made by buddhist practioners for buddhist practitioners. We show you some very spezial sacred places and make sure that you have the time to understand the place, get the information you would like to get and then have time to meditate. It is a unique experience to meet the local Rinpoches, to come into contact with the nuns and monks living the monasteries and monastic school, to learn more about their way of life and to have the possibility to deepen your own understanding of the enlightened nature of your own mind.
Tours are only organised in small groups , as well as individual tours with a qualified guide. Once a year a ten days meditation retreat is organised under the guidance of a bhutanese Khenpo.
