5.0 out of 5 stars Essential introduction 16 Feb 2004
By Chris
LP do it again. The guide rightly focuses on facts for the visitor, explaining the practicalities of travelling to the country and pointing out how one can design a customised tour. It provides an excellent introduction to the religion, culture and customs of Bhutan and covers the main highlights of the country in a sensible 'following the road' style - so you come across points of interest in the book in the same order as you come acoss them while in a hi-lux. There is an exhaustve and mouth-watering section on trekking, with a detailed advice concerning trekking health. It you are thinking about visiting this beautiful country, buying this book will convince you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great - just what I was after! 11 Sep 2011
By plot
True to description, quick to arrive - what more could I ask for? I guess I need to waffle on for a few more words to hit the requisite 20, but what more is there to say?
