Bhutan, nestled in the awe-inspiring Himalayas, is a landlocked Kingdom bounded by two of the world’s largest nations, China and India.
A nation driven by strong environmental preservation policies, Bhutan is now one of the top 10 global hotspots, and home to many of the world’s magnificent and endangered species of flora and fauna.
With one foot in its glorious past and another in the future, Bhutan is a Kingdom marching along the middle path, guided by a unique development philosophy of Gross National Happiness, where material wealth means little without the happiness and fulfillment of its people.
