Nestled high in the Himalayas and landlocked between Tibet, China, and India, The Kingdom of Bhutan is the world’s last remaining Buddhist Kingdom and the only Vajrayana Buddhist nation in the world. It is primarily known for the unique preservation of
its ancient culture and untouched landscape.
Pristine Bhutan, with its population of little over 700,000, has been careful to open its doors to modern global influences. Here exists the philosophy of Gross Domestic Happiness, where development is measured by the notion of a holistic society. Economic
objectives are combined with social and environmental ones for overall wellbeing, including a law passed for 60% of the land to always remain forested.
Because of this sacred hold to nature, Bhutan holds the claim as one of the world’s ten most revered biodiversity hotpots, being dubbed “The Last Shangri La." Magnificent mountainous terrain lies in the north, with Gangkhar Puensum at 7,570m said to be
the highest unclimbed mountain in the world. In the center are hills, valleys, and gorges and to the south a more tropical landscape and diverse wildlife.
The traditional etiquette of ‘Driglam Namzha’ is still widely upheld and Buddhism is apparent in almost every aspect of Bhutanese life. Architecture especially remains one of the country’s huge draws, including the monasteries built at great heights and
the infamous ‘dzong’ fortresses. Although a major draw for tourists, the continuation of such preservation meant limited numbers of tourists were allowed into the country each year (although this has now been lifted), yet those who do get their visa
granted have to pay a minimum of $200-$250 per day to enter (an all inclusive cost).
