Bhutan
The Kingdom of Bhutan is nestled in the southern slopes of the eastern Himalayas, and landlocked between the Tibet Autonomous Region to the north and
the Indian states of Sikkim, West Bengal, Assam and Arunachal Pradesh to the west and south. The land consists mostly of steep and high mountains
crisscrossed by a network of swift rivers, which form deep valleys before draining into the Indian plains. Elevation rises from 200 m (660 ft) in the southern
foothills to more than 7,000 m (23,000 ft). This great geographical diversity combined with equally diverse climate conditions contributes to Bhutan's
outstanding range of biodiversity and ecosystems.

Bhutan or more commonly known as the Land of the Dragon, is the most isolated and exotic land in the Himalayas. We at OASIS offer the best group
and individual guided travel throughout Bhutan, and our trips operate almost year-round. In Bhutan, standards of dress, architecture, food, and education
are ruled by ancient tradition. You can travel for days through Bhutan's uninhabited pine forests or follow the paths of ancient warrior monks who
have repelled invaders from the north. You may visit an ancient Bhutanese monastery where helmets, shields, bows, and spears still hang ready for
action.
It is not surprising that Bhutanese have lived in harmony with nature and that Bhutan's Environment remains pristine and intact today.
The country has been identified as one of the biodiversity hotspots in the world and one of the 221 global endemic bird areas. Its ecosystem harbors some of
the most exotic species of the eastern Himalayas, with an estimated 770 species of Birds, over 50 species of Rhododendron, an astonishing variety of
medicinal plants and orchids. Bhutan is also rich in wildlife, with animals like Tekin, Snow Leopard, Golden Langur, Blue Sheep, Tiger, Water Buffalo and
Elephant.
The country has consciously adapted a controlled tourism and development policy. For a few who travel to Bhutan, a wide verity of activities are available,
from Snowmen trek to Kayaking down the Mocchu, from witnessing the colorful festivals in the fortress to the panoramic mountain flight..

OASIS WORLD's local guides possess full knowledge of travel and logistic requirements to arrange a very special trek, cultural expedition or festival-focused
tour. Until recently, accommodation choices were very limited in Bhutan, but new hotels and the option of staying in local homes afford new options. Ask
about special permits to visit Bhutan's restricted areas.

Nepal
The Himalayan kingdom of Nepal is a land of scenic mountains, time-worn temples and some of the best walking trails on Earth. It's a small country,
but it's rich in scenic splendour and exotic cultures. The people of Nepal are as diverse as their country and represent distinct cultures and races. Though
they speak a variety of tongues and practice different religions, they are the friendliest people that you would ever meet. The kingdom has long exerted
a pull on the Western imagination and it's a difficult place to dislodge from your memory once you return.
So, wait until you're actually here in Nepal.

As a traveller, there are endless number of surprises Nepal has to offer you. Kathmandu Valley with its thousands of Hindu temples, Buddhist Stupas,
stunning architecture and rich pageantry can be quite beyond words. If you are careful enough not to get entangled in the superficial facade of a fastly
modernizing capital city, Kathmandu probably offers you as exotic and urban experience as you can get. Beyond Kathmandu it's another world altogether.
Most travellers to Nepal want to check out the truly spectacular Himalayas along with the higher hills. A few come here to scale the high mountains, but
many come here for the love of nature, who trek along landscapes filled with deep valleys, lush forests, snow trails, terraced fields, and above all, the most
hospitable people.

Sikkim
Come to Sikkim, the land of orchids and flowers, mighty mountains and beautiful monasteries. Come and play a part in history from 10-25 March 2012.
Coinciding with the First International Flower festival in Gangtok we take you on the path of the great Explorer Alexandra David Neel. Off the beaten track
into exotic remote North Sikkim.
Explore the region where Alexandra and her companion Yongden travelled to almost a century ago. We trek in the region of Lachen , Yumthang and Lachung,
Givs you a chance to imagine the indomitable spirit of this great adventurer.

Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka is a small miracle partly due to the compact physical diversity of this pearl-shaped island - but, as we shall see, this diversity extends to virtually 
every aspect of life. Fringed by variously-shaped sublime beaches, from straight expanse to rocky cove, the island possesses a coastal plain containing a host 
of geographic features such as lagoons, wetlands, rivers and various types of wildlife-rich jungle. The plain ends in the central area where the land starts 
to ascend into mist-shrouded mountains, covered in forests of wind-stunted trees (in fact there are seven different types of forest in Sri Lanka), plains known 
as patanas, and rolling tea plantations. In addition, the hillsides are invariably punctuated by dramatic waterfalls. For its size Sri Lanka has perhaps the 
largest number of waterfalls of any country. Seductive beaches and tempting water sports, magnificent landscapes featuring lazy lagoons, fertile wetlands, 
ecologically-wondrous types of forest, imposing mountains, bounteous rivers and waterfalls, an abundance of wildlife - much of it endemic - unique 
ecosystems, inspiring heritage sites from ancient cities to colonial forts, a vibrant culture including fine arts and crafts and grand festivals, and a people of 
diverse ethnicity and religious persuasion, charming and hospitable. Contemporary tourist attractions such as luxurious Ayurveda spas and broad-based 
shopping opportunities have evolved, and Sri Lanka has become one of the world's most popular destinations to get married and enjoy a honeymoon.

Tibet 
Tibet lies on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau of the southwest border of China. The average height of the whole region is more than 4,000 meters above sea level, 
for which Tibet is known as "Roof of the World". The highest peak of Tibet, also the highest in Himalayas and in the whole world, is Everest Peak, 
which is 8,848 meters above sea level. Although being a disputed part of China, Tibet has its own unique culture. It is mainly inhabited by Tibetans, peace 
loving and hard working race of people. Its population of 2.3 million people come from a variety of ethnic groups including Tibetan, Han, Monba and Lhota. 
Its capital city is Lhasa. Northwest Tibet, mainly Qing Hai plateau, is home to a variety of unusual and unique animals. 
Across the northern expanse of Tibet, you can see vast grasslands where horses, yak and sheep roam freely. The world's lowest valley, the Grand Yarlun-tzanpo 
River Valley lies in east. Tibet is the biggest, highest and the youngest plateau in the world. It claims to be the Roof of the world and The Third Pole. 
Mt. Kunlun, Mt. Himalaya, Mt. Gandis and Mt. Henduan are all scraping the sky. Tibet is full of rivers and lakes, which provides adequate hydroelectric 
power and aquatic products. Bushy banks of the rivers and lakes are the homes of swans and wild geese. If you do not watch your step, you might 
stride on their eggs. On the banks of the salt water lakes, there are great heaps of alkail which also contain nitre borax.

Tibetan Buddhism also known as Lamaism has exerted extensive and profound influence on the tibetan race. Buddhism spread into Tibet in the 7th century, 
and gradually infiltrates tibet's history, politics, economics, culture, exchanges and habits and customs to become the most extensively worshipped religion 
of tibetans. Prolonged ethnic cultural exchanges also enabled tibetan buddhism to make its way into the Mongolian, Tu, Yugu, Luoba, Moinba, Naxi, 
Purmi and other ethnic minority nationalities throughout China. Buddhism has long been widely worshipped in tibet autonomous region, as well as Sichuan, 
Yunnan, Gansu and Qinghai provinces, and the Xinjiang Uygur and Inner Mongolia autonomous regions. It has also made its way into Sikkim, Bhutan, Nepal, 
the Mongolian People's Republic and Buryat in the Republic of Russia.

More than 1,400 Tibetan monasteries and other religious venues were renovated and opened following the peaceful liberation of Tibet in 1951. Chinese 
government and policies for religious freedom enable 34,000 monks in various monasteries to freely study Buddhist sutras and hold various types of Buddhist 
activities in their respective monasteries. In addition, the broad masses of religious have set up shrines, Buddha halls and sutra recitation rooms in their 
homes, and undertake pilgrimages to sacred sites.
