Imagine a country where a land’s worth is measured differently—think Gross National Happiness instead of Gross Domestic Product. Now stop dreaming because you are in the unexplored mountain kingdom of Bhutan. Beauty and wisdom are revealed at each dzong, every gompa and, most incredibly, in the eyes of every smiling Buddhist monk you meet. On gentle treks through remote trails and visits to Paro, Thimphu and Punakha, nature lovers, photographers and cultural junkies will uncover a purity of culture, traditions and kindness.
