East West Round Trip

Bhutan, 'Land of the Thunder Dragon', has a rich and unique cultural heritage that has largely remained intact because of its isolation from the rest of the world until the early 1960s. Separated by a high pass, and by many wars over the years, the east and west of the Kingdom only became unified last century.

Bhutan's little visited 'wild east', even though the most densely populated region (about 38,000) remains the country's hinterland. Roads reach the major towns, but most settlements are hidden in the steep hillsides of remote and isolated valleys, some of which are home to minority ethnic groups comprising less than 1000 people.
