Bhutan is a country where development is measured not by Gross National Product, but by Gross National Happiness. Aptly described as a ‘living museum', there is something memorable to see in every corner of this beautiful country.
Separated by humbling mountain ranges, the country has a diverse topography. If Western Bhutan is a pastoral delight with its cascading rice fields and fruit orchards, the valleys of the central region have legendary natural beauty and hospitable terrain. The subtropical plains of Eastern Bhutan, on the other hand, offer challenging trekking opportunities and stunning natural vistas.

When in Bhutan, you must try the national dish Ema Datchi (a dish based on large green chillis and cheesy sauce), a variety of delicious Tibetan style Momos and various meats cooked in spicy gravy. Given the cold climate of the mountain regions of the country, spices and meats make up a large portion of the cuisine, along with locally grown herbal teas.

The Bhutanese way of life is fundamentally centred around the Buddhist philosophy of finding inner peace and giving more importance to self actualisation than material possessions. A country where the Gross National Happiness is used to measure the well-being of the country, it is evident that the hectic life or sense of urgency is far from Bhutan’s living. They believe in protecting their natural and spiritual wealth, and subsequently have one of the lowest carbon footprints, and the highest growing GDP in the world!
