BHUTAN - THE LAST SHANGRI LA


Bhutan fascinates the mind like no other. Tucked in the heart of the Himalayas and surrounded by its larger neighbours India and Nepal, Bhutan manages to maintain its own unique charm. The country that measures its development by 'Gross National Happiness' and not GDP has proved to the developed world that only materiel wealth cannot be a benchmark of a nation's progress. The country's large forest cover, special laws against hunting and fishing that are zealously followed, concern about not wasting natural resources, have preserved Bhutan as possibly the world's last Shangri La.
Give yourself a treat this summer and take the offbeat route to Bhutan for a really unique experience!

GOTG’S Top 5 Picks


1.   De stress with a therapeutic hot stone bath in a traditional wooden bath tub, where the water is heated by hot stones.
2.   Up your happiness quotient with a trek up to the fabled ‘Tiger’s Nest Monastery perched at the edge of a hill. Just you and the sound of blissful silence.
3.   Did you think only women wore skirts? Giving the Scotsmen and the Bhutanese women serious competition are Bhutanese men in skirts of varying hues.
4.   Did you know that in Bhutan, chillies are not just used as seasoning, but are cooked as an entire dish? Give your taste buds a serious challenge with Bhutan’s famous ‘Ema Datchi’ (Chillies cooked with cheese).
5.   Meet the almost mythical Taikin, an animal that has the head of a goat and the body of a cow assembled by Bhutan’s famous ‘Divine Madman’, Lama Drupa Kuenly.
