Enlightening Bhutan

By May 14, 2019 No Comments
Even after opening its doors to tourism in 1974, Bhutan has preserved an aura of exotic mysticism. Beyond the spectacular Himalayan landscape dotted with prayer flags, remote living monasteries where Vajrayana masters meditate, and a rich culture which defines the Bhutanese identity, what are the realities in the land of Gross National Happiness? What do we know about a small country that dares to be different?
