Yes, Bhutan is the only country in the world which has a measure of happiness, GNH (Gross National Happiness). Surprised?? Don’t be!!! This country has inculcated a culture of staying happy and imparting happiness.
From mesmerizing mountains to rich cultural heritage to spotlessly clean cities and towns, Bhutan offers it all. Bhutanese adore their mountains, admire their Dzongs, and revere their Lakhangs. Bhutanese cuisine is a veritable treat to gastronomes. Located in the foothills of the great Himalayas, this paradise comprises rather unique cultural landscape which has witnessed the country’s customs, traditions, history, and ways of living.
The diversity of the landscape at Bhutan is like a kaleidoscope – from serene Samdrup (the oldest town in Bhutan) to baffling Bumthang to perplexing Phobjika to Tranquil Thimpu to placed Paro to humble Haa (the humility and innocence of the people here are astounding).
Witness the culture of “the awakened one” Buddha. Get bewitched in the land of unique customs and people with deeply held beliefs – join us in exploring and experiencing the mystical land of happiness.
