Nestled in the heart of the Himalayas, the Kingdom of Bhutan is a tiny country home to an immensely rich culture that draws upon both ancient tradition and cutting-edge innovation. Amidst its lush forests, snow-capped mountains, elaborate monasteries, and cliffside temples, you'll also encounter contemporary art venues and even a world-renowned hip-hop dance company. Traveling from bustling Thimphu to the Phobjikha Valley, and into the small village of Haa, our journey will touch upon the kingdom’s deeply rooted traditions as well as contemporary urban and rural culture. We’ll visit ancient dzongs and modern bazaars, meet spiritual leaders alongside sartorial bloggers, and glimpse urban life springing up in the shadow of a giant, golden Buddha statue, serenely contemplating the dynamic city below.
