Thimphu, 21st May, 2014 - Bhutan Swallowtail Travels has signed a one year contract with Bhutan Reality Pictures, Thimphu, to develop a 'field guide to Thimphu biodiversity' including mapping of old and forgotten nature trails, short video clips of birds, butterflies, flowers, plants and ancient monasteries and temples.

Thimphu may be the capital city with its numerous buildings, vehicles and people, but the surrounding forests in its unexplored, undisturbed and pristine form makes Thimphu the perfect ecotourism destination in Bhutan with the perfect blend of the modern, ancient culture and rich biodiversity.

With the usual touristy things to do and places to visit, tour operators in Bhutan were providing the same mundane itinerary to visiting guests. The managing partner of Bhutan Swallowtail Travels, Mr. Sonam Dendup said, "We are very positive with this new programme that will diversify and provide new products and choices to our tourists. It will not only increase the coffers of tourism, but most importantly it will immensely benefit the local Bhutanese people, be it in the form of providing economy boost to the local communities but also preserving the environment in a sustainable manner.

Bhutan Reality Pictures with its expert team of specializing in nature tourism will be vigorously involved with the programme for one whole year so as to study the flora and fauna through the four seasons. The end result of this programme will be a guide book and video clips of nature trails with brief description of the temples, various plants and animal species found in the surrounding areas of Thimphu. The final product will be made available to Bhutanese tour operators and tourists via the internet and the company's website.
