Have these Bhutan photos encouraged you to visit?

Bhutan sits between Tibet and Indian in the Himalayan range. Due to their unique thinking they limit the number of tourists who can visit to ensure the country and set a visa fee to ensure Bhutan sticks to its principles of remaining carbon neutral while the visa fee also includes a donation to projects to improve the life quality of the Bhutanese people. Consequently, many people think Bhutan is too expensive to visit but the cost of a trip may surprise you.

Bhutan is the only country that measure its progress based on the happiness of the people so it known as the happiest country in the world.

During my trip there I fell in love with the unique character of the country and its enduring characteristics and you can see some of the highlights in my article 9 reasons I loved Bhutan.
