Take a spiritual tour of BhutanWhile Bhutan can be an expensive country to visit, the mystical country offers an ideal location for yoga and meditation and a holistic health retreat. The country nestles in the Himalayas with breathtaking landscapes of snowcapped mountains, lush green valleys and forests. One unique aspect of Bhutan was that tourism here wasn’t available until 1974. Even now, the number of visitors to the country is restricted to retain its traditional charm. A wonderful way to see the country is to take a trek through the forests and rice paddy fields. Along the way, Buddhist monasteries, which cling to the steep hillsides, often welcome visitors. When there, you can meet the monks and go on a spiritual journey in paradise. Meanwhile, the country also offers yoga, meditation and holistic health at beautiful sanctuaries throughout Bhutan.
