Bhutan, Land of the Thunder Dragon, set high in the remote Himalayas, remains a land of mystery and intrigue. Rarely visited by western travellers, Bhutan maintains a society where "gross national happiness" is the measure of success. Each year, festivals (tsechus) steeped in tradition take place in Bhutan's temples where monks wear animal masks and dance, whirling around the temple courtyards in a ritual as old as the surrounding mountains. Bhutan is one of few remaining places on earth where the visitor can truly feel that they have stepped back in time.
