Bhutan » » Tour to Bhutan

The original name Bhutan may have evolved from Sanskrit ‘Bhotant’ meaning ‘the end of Tibet’ or from "Bhu-uttan" meaning ‘highland’. Bhutans early history is steeped in Buddhist tradition and mythology. The medieval and modern history is better documented than its ancient history. It was a time of warlords, feuds, giant fortresses and castles. The modern history is no less amazing with intrigue, treachery, fierce battles and extraordinary pageantry all playing an important part. Bhutan is also known as the last domain of Tantric Buddhism.
