Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan are all shrouded in mystery and magic, featuring in Himalayan landscape where snow-capped peaks soar highly and thick temple and Monastery fragrances are given off from the spectacular architectures and pious pilgrims.
The vertically raising layers of mountains and series of valleys appear as giant staircase leading to sky touching snow peaks. Nepal was refuge for spiritual masters and political mavericks from both India and Tibet for a long time. Rare teachings were passed down and prospered undisturbed by outside world until recently. In the citadel of the eastern Himalayas, Bhutan persisted with the original form of Tibetan Buddhism and its unique civilisation. As a medieval country with its featured customs, Bhutan never seeks for the speedy modernisation at the expense of its original charm. Attaching great importance to environmental protection and cultural preservation, undoubtedly it gets a reputation of the Last Shangri-La.
