A magical kingdom nestling amongst the snow capped peaks of the Himalayas. A deeply Buddhist community that measures its Gross National Happiness as an idea of how well the country is doing. In spring the rhododendron forests are ablaze with colour and the trekking trails are the most magnificent anywhere. The land and the people are unspoilt as they maintain their traditions. A place time forgot - and if this is not Shangri-la it should be.
