Bhutan - An earthly paradise!
This earthly paradise, known, as Drukyul to its people is replete with impeccable strokes of natures brush making this unconquered country a truly crystallized manifestation of the sublime nature. It is a spiritual land where every Dzong (fortress), monastery, rock, valley, gorge, tree and mountain exists with the spirits of their own, and each has its own story to tell. Every hilltop is adorned with a monastery or a Chorten ( stupa ), and every cave has provided the sacred sanctuary for saints.
It is a land where prayers are given wings by ubiquitous prayer flags, and at the same time Yeti, the abominable snowman is believed to roam in the high mountains.
Cradled between China in the north and India in the south, this magical Kingdom of about 40,500 square kilometers still listens to the voices of nature (about 70% of the total land is covered by forest) and to its ancient culture and tradition. Its population of about 600,000 believes in the power of faith and wisdom of nature and religion. Today the country is paving a distinct and unique identity for itself and the development philosophy is "Gross National Happiness".
