Description

Bhutan is also popularly known as 'Land of Thunder Dragon.' The land consists mostly of high and steep mountains crisscrossed by a network of swift rivers, which form deep valleys. The country has the world’s highest unclimbed peak, Gangkhar Puensum, at 24,836 feet. An interesting fact about Bhutan - the general prosperity of the country is measured by the ‘Gross National Happiness’ index, explained by its four pillars - sustainable development, good governance, cultural preservation and environmental protection. Rich in cultural diversity, every village in Bhutan has a unique festival, Tshechu is the most important and widely celebrated of all festivals.
