Perched among the peaks of the mighty Himalayas, the tiny kingdom of Bhutan has been described as the last Shangri-La, shrouded in centuries of mystery. Bhutan offers a fascinating insight into a Buddhist culture where time has stood still.
Travelers have not given Bhutan very much thought until recently. In 1972 the first outsiders were allowed into this hermetic kingdom sandwiched between China and India. Imagine a country where its worth is measured differently - think Gross National Happiness instead of Gross Domestic Product.
