Prize od the president of Slovak republic for Bhutan

The journey to Bhutan was a journey to a fairy tale. It was the search for the magic of the last kingdom that had been preserved on Earth also thanks to high mountains. No human feet ever stood on their peaks reaching up to a height of 7500 meters. These are the highest virgin mountains on Earth.

The people of Bhutan believe that their Gods are reigning on the mountains and so their good king did not allow them to enter mountains higher then 6000 meters. The mountain kingdom could keep its extraordinaire character thank to its isolation. You can feel everywhere the stopped time of the Middle Ages and the impressive Buddhism that impress you by fabulous tradition that cannot be found in other parts of the Himalayas.
