  • Bhutan, like Nepal, is a small, mountainous country locked to 3 sides by India and 1 by China. Known in the western world by the eponym Last Shangri-la, the Buddhist kingdom attracts a significant number of tourists, offering them a unique amalgam of ancient culture and tradition, and spectacular landscapes. Bhutan is probably the only country which has officially prioritized happiness to prosperity; development is measured not in terms of GDP (Gross Domestic Product), but GNP (Gross National happiness).
    The tourism is regulated in Bhutan and in accordance with the government’s “High Value. Low Impact” policy, a sum of USD 200 or 250 per day (depending upon the season) has to be paid by a visitor. However, the steep amount includes accommodation, licensed guide, internal transport etc. Also, it is to be noted that 65% of the amount you pay is used as a royalty for social causes like free education, poverty alleviation, etc.
