The Kingdom of Bhutan is a small country between China and India, lost at the very spurs of the Himalayas, the coveted dream of many travelers. In this amazing state, instead of the dry economic term “gross national product”, the concept of “gross national happiness” is used, and among the state institutions there is a real Ministry of Happiness.
Tibetan chronicles from two hundred years ago describe Bhutan as a “Secret holy Country” and a “Lotus Garden of the gods.” The history of the Kingdom is quite interesting – its powerful neighbors did not know about the country for many centuries, it managed to avoid the invasion of colonizers and the penetration of foreign culture for a long time. Perhaps that is why an almost medieval identity and pristine nature have been preserved there.
Bhutan is a state where the inhabitants are still friendly and not spoiled, where there is practically no crime and hunger. The traveler is waiting for magnificent natural landscapes, the purest mountain rivers, majestic peaks of the highest mountains on the planet and the unique culture of the locals, preserved almost unchanged from the XV-XVI centuries.
