Location

The only Buddhist Himalayan kingdom in existence, Bhutan, is one of the happiest places in the world, with more than 20 peaks towering 7,000 meters above sea level, subtropical forests, and alpine landscapes.

The land of the dragon, shrouded in mist and mysteries, is on nearly everyone's bucket list. A trip on a bike through this wonderful and happy country where the GNP was renamed to GNH or Gross National Happiness can be nothing but short of magical.

Although Bhutan opened for tourism as late as 1974, the annual influx of tourists is rather low. A constitutional monarchy since 2008, Bhutan is a fiercely independent land. This is one of the few countries in the world that has never been colonized. You will feel as if you’ve been transported back in time. Bhutan maintains its traditions and customs and that shows in the country's architecture and prevalent dressing style of the Drukpas.

From the Tiger's Nest monastery in Paro to the busy streets of Thimphu, this country is amazing, magical, and as you were told earlier, happy!
