To travel to Bhutan is to bask in an atmosphere of perfect tranquility. The setting is spiritual, meditative and one of communion with nature, a getaway from the hustle and bustle of modern metropolis. Life is slow and the social fabric, as in family bonds and community-ship, is a cherished value. Travelers realize the moment they step into Bhutan that their sojourn here is curative and contemplative, where they can indulge, aided by the overall ambience, into an array of therapeutic solace such as yoga and meditation, hot stone or medicinal water bath, or immerse themselves in a natural hot spring. Better still, they can just get away for a night or two into a far-flung village or take a respite in a tented mountainside camp and rejuvenate themselves by absorbing the wondrous manifestations of nature.
