Bhutan

  • bhutan

Sandwhiched between the two of the world’s most densely populated nations (India and China), Bhutan has a remarkably low population that’s been estimated to be anywhere between six hundred thousand and two million. Partly due to this small population, partly because of Bhutan’s isolated past, and partly due to the government’s focus on conservation of Bhutanese culture, environment and a state policy of promoting happiness the country retained its past better than most of its south Asian neighbours. Buddhist temples and monastries dating back centuries are more than just a ruin for visitors to get their photo taken in front of: they are as significant in daily life as ever. Bhutan is the only Himalayan Buddhist state.
