…Majestic mountains, moss-covered forests, deep Buddhist traditions, spectacular dance festivals, ubiquitious chillies, unique Gross National Happines philosophy...
Bhutan is one of the most untouched countries we’ve explored and it’s where we had the privelege of celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary.
In addition to its striking landscapes, it was also a unique destination for us to visit due to the government’s approach to tourism. As a foreign visitor, you are charged a minimum tariff (US$250/day per person in Nov 2018) that includes accommodation, food, car transport, and an official guide that is organised by a registered Bhutanese tour agency. This was quite different to our normal approach of developing a budget based on itemised prices for hotels, transport, food, etc. The daily fee limits the numbr of foreign visitors providing travellers with a more peaceful, less crowded, and higher quality experience than in other similar locations.
Located on the eastern edge of the Himalayas between China and India, Bhutan’s mountainous landscape and approach to environmental protection has resulted in 70% of the country remaining forested for future generations. In turn, this has created a peaceful, non-congested feel to the country.
