Always browse any or all Travel Pictorial books about a country, region or a natural wonder of the world . You will find excellent photography to view at leisure. Check out any bookstore or library ( lending or reference ).

Bhutan is unique in not allowing individual travel. All visitors have to come through a pre-planned, pre-organised and pre-paid trip, be it short or long. Every trip uses also or only a Bhutan-based travelagent. You can find many interesting articles about Bhutan on the tripAdvisor site, here next to you.
