Description

Bhutan is a small and fascinating Himalayan country with contingent tourism, and therefore difficult to reach. Theater of enchanting scenery typical of the area, Bhutan stands out for the Dzong, large castles built mostly in the 17th century, with the function of fortress, monastery, school, administrative center and barracks. All of Bhutan's main valleys are manned by massive Dzongs.
