Bhutan – The last paradise on earth

This “last Shingri-La” is truly an amazing paradise with diverse climates, rich ecosystems and abundant resources.

Beautiful mountain scenery creates the paradise land of Bhutan.

Bhutan means “Land of the Sam Dragon” because of the fierce and harsh storms that always attack this land.

The wild beauty that invites exploration, the warm-hearted people who warmly welcome visitors, the beautiful temples that bring a sense of serenity and appreciation for life are indelible feelings when visiting this world.

Bhutan’s terrain is almost entirely mountainous except for a narrow strip along its southern border – the Duars, the only plain area.

Preserving and protecting the natural environment is a concept deeply ingrained in the subconscious of every person here.

Besides a religion with a long history, Bhutanese people pay great attention to preserving the nation’s cultural identity because the majority of Bhutan’s population is Bhotia (or Bhote, derived from Bod, the ancient name of Tibet).

Since 1971, Bhutan has not used the GDP index – gross domestic product is the only way to measure its country’s progress.

Bhutan’s principle is to establish policy through gross national happiness indexes, with parameters on mental and physical health based on socially equitable development, cultural preservation, and environmental conservation.

It can be affirmed that over the past three decades, the belief that material growth should be replaced by developments in spiritual life remains a unique oddity.

Today, the people of this country considered the `Switzerland of Asia` live more responsibly with what is truly theirs, are more comfortable in spirit, and are becoming more and more wealthy financially.
