Bhutan is an extraordinary place. It is a Himalayan kingdom with full of mystery and magic, where a traditional Buddhist culture has its distinct significance and spread globally.
For Bhutanese, it is the highly sustainable area on the tourism-prospect approach and they pride themselves with the philosophy of ‘Gross National Happiness’. There is no limit to tourist visas and most of the tourists generously and famously pay a minimum tariff of US$250 per day showing as if it is one of the world’s more expensive destinations. However, this fee is all-inclusive – accommodation, food, transport and an official guide are all provided. Since Bhutan holds many surprises like red rice, chilies as the main ingredient. Owing to the Buddhist land, monasteries are in the mainstream, and most of the houses are painted with the giant – protective penises in the entrance. The Bhutanese are well educated, fun loving and vibrant and have maintained Buddhist traditions properly.
The visitors can experience the natural charm of the first country where Gross National Happiness is deemed more important than Gross National Product. By law, more than 50% of the land must be protected as a forest land for the future generations. Bhutan’s natural beauty and wonders can easily be traced while traveling the mountain passes – resplendent with rhododendron blossom in spring. Flora and Fauna are protected in several national parks, and a mountain trek is the best way to explore the Himalaya.
Due to the amazing Himalayan landscape with snowcapped peaks rise above shadowy gorges cloaked in primeval forests and natural beauty of Bhutan, the visitors don’t hesitate to spend their money to come here. The unique architecture of Bhutan that embodies Buddhist culture and sets the spectacular scene all the time cannot help enchanting the persons approaching there. Furthermore, the textiles, majestic fortress like monasteries, handicrafts, outrageous archery competitions, and high- altitude trekking trails seen stunning flora and fauna etc. really enchant
