Tucked away in the eastern Himalayas, Bhutan is a one of the smallest countries of south-eastern Asia. Bhutan is rich with natural resources, its lush forests are home to many shy and elusive mammals and birds. The people of Bhutan are equally shy and pleasant.
The country has only recently accepted democracy but the royal family is still revered highly and for most of the people the royal couple is still the supreme power. Bhutan is tiny but it is a very prosperous nation with most people living a good life with the ‘gross national happiness’ concept widely practiced.
