Bhutan is the abode of gods and the home to the immortals in the Himalayas. Apart from the majesty and grandeur of the natural surroundings, it has a special environment where communion with the divine is possible through contemplation and meditation. And so since time immemorial, ascetics, scholars, philosophers and pilgrim have been drawn irresistibly to these remote and rugged mountains in their personal search for wisdom, inspiration, solitude and happiness. Over the centuries the place has been blessed by these people with an invaluable spiritual legacy that makes the place conducive for the meditations.
The itinerary includes three to four day meditations in sacred places with some cultural tours around the country. The company’s coordinator will try to arrange room inside the monasteries or temples for meditation, but wherever not possible the guests will have to meditate inside the camps.
