For starters, Bhutan is full of greenery as it is required by law to keep more than 60 per cent of the country forested. Be it the natural beauty of the spectacular Himalayas and wide rice-field landscapes or the stunning architecture of age-old monasteries and houses, Bhutan is a treat for your eyes, body and soul. It also makes for a beautiful pilgrim destination for those with a religious inclination. Add to this the hospitality of the locals and the cuteness of the kids here and what you get is an irresistible holiday destination easily accessible from India.

These breathtakingly beautiful pictures of Bhutan give you a glimpse of this wonderland and entice you to visit it at the earliest!
