Bhutan TourBhutan is a heaven for the nature lovers and for the trekkers. It is a land locked mountain kingdom bordered by Tibet, China, Nepal and Bangladesh. It is often compared to Switzerland because of its topography since most of the part look like the Swiss Alps, with green hills, houses that look like chalets and snow peaks sticking out of nowhere. From May to August it is covered with varieties of flowers adorned with waterfalls and streams. Bhutan has many surprises and a visit to the country is a splendid adventure.
