That the Government of Bhutan measures progress in “Gross National Happiness” says a lot about this charming Himalayan Kingdom. Winding trails made by yak herders wend their way past medieval hilltop monasteries and “dzong” fortresses. A day of exhilarating walking can be followed by a stay in one of Bhutan’s outstanding boutique hotels where the warmth of the cuisine is matched by the natural friendliness of the people.
For the time being Bhutan retains its sense of being “undiscovered”. In our view, now is the ideal time to visit when several superb hotels have been established yet you can still enjoy the feeling that you are among the first explorers of this enchanting land.
