En-route Countries….

Myanmar     Isolated from the rest of the world for more than three decades, Burma remains one of the most mysterious and undiscovered destinations in the world and offers all the traditional delights of Asia: virgin jungles, snow-capped mountains, pristine beaches and ancient cities that was closed to foreigners for a long time. Myanmar’s culture is a result of heavy Indian influences intertwined with local traditions and some Chinese influences; this can be seen in the various stupas and temples throughout the country. Most Burmese people are incredibly friendly and polite, and will do their best to make you feel welcome in their country.

Bhutan  Bhutan is the happiest country in Asia, and the eighth in the world, despite widespread poverty and illiteracy. A survey pointed to the landlocked Himalayan kingdom’s beautiful mountain scenery, isolated culture and strong sense of national identity as reasons for the contentment of its citizens.

Hidden away high amongst the mighty Himalayan range, the hidden kingdom of Bhutan is a destination that even the most seasoned traveller considers a privilege to visit. Sacred monasteries sit precariously on sheer cliffs, fluttering prayer flags line high mountain ridges, red robed monks chant in distant temples, and colourful masked dancers perform ancient rituals on sacred Dzong (fortress) grounds during Buddhist festivals. The people of Bhutan have drawn a rich culture from this heritage and made it the essence of their timeless identity.

Visited Places –Thimpu, Paro, Punakha

Nepal
