Bhutan is a landlocked country in South Asia. Located in the eastern Himalayas and is bordered by the Tibetan Autonomous Region of China in the north, the Indian Sikkim State and the Tibetan Valley in Tibet in the east, the Indian Arunachal Pradesh State in the east and the Assam State and West Bengal in the south.
Bhutanese pride themselves on a sustainable approach to tourism in line with the Gross National Happiness philosophy. Foreign visitors pay high prices of $ 250 per day, making it one of the most valuable destinations in the world. However, this fee is all-inclusive – accommodation, food, transport and official guides are provided, so this is not a bad deal. You do not have to travel in a large group, and you can organise your itinerary. What you won’t find is travel independent of budget.
Bhutan is like nowhere else. Here the rice is red and where chillies aren’t just a seasoning but the main ingredient. It’s also a deeply Buddhist land, where monks check their smartphones after performing divination . While it proudly prioritises its Buddhist traditions, Bhutan is not a land frozen in time. You will find the Bhutanese well educated, fun-loving and very well notified about the world around them. It’s this blending of the ancient and modern that makes Bhutan endlessly fascinating.
Why spend your hard-earned money to come here?
First, it is the natural eastern Himalayan landscape, where the peaks of snow-capped peaks rise above the rainforests and beautiful traditional villages. Add majestic dzongs and fort-like monasteries to this picturesque landscape, many of which act as a scene for spectacular dance festivals attended by an almost medieval audience. Then there are frameworks and handicrafts, massive archery competitions, alpine hiking trails and stunning flora and fauna. If it’s not “Shangri-La,” it’s as close as it gets.
