Event Overview

Bhutan - The land of Happiness, where the wealth is measured by your happiness quotient. Yes Bhutan is the only country in the world which measured GDH (gross domestic happiness). Surprised don’t be… Gross National Happiness is a term coined by His Majesty the Fourth King of Bhutan, Jigme Singye Wangchuck in the 1970s. The concept implies that sustainable development should take a holistic approach towards notions of progress and give equal importance to non-economic aspects of wellbeing. Bhutan is built on its core culture, heritage & values. Bhutan offers many cultural & natural offerings which are quite unique. Food in Bhutan is a complete surprise. The diversity of the landscape at Bhutan varies from Samdrup, Bumthang, Phobjika, Thimpu, Paro & Haa. You would get to witness the diverse culture of Budhism & its roots. The Culturally rich & humble bhutaneese people will mesmarise you with their charm.

Trashigang is also the principle marketplace for the semi-nomadic people of Merak and Sakteng, whose unique way of dress stands out from the regular Bhutanese Gho & Kira.
  • The road approaching Mongar is one of the most spectacular journeys, It passes over sheer cliffs and through beautiful fir forests and green pastures. Passing this way will have the opportunity to see countless varieties of rhododendrons, on clear days you can even catch a glimpse of Gangkhar Puensum (7541 meters), the world’s highest unclimbed mountain. The region is known for its weavers and textiles and fabrics produced here are considered some of the best in the country.
