The Land of the Thunder Dragon, The Kingdom in the Sky, The Land of the Hidden Treasures, Bhutan has been called many mysterious and enchanting names. For a country that remained essentially disconnected from the outside world until the 1960s, that should come as no surprise. Landlocked between the most remote parts of India to the South and Tibet through the Himalayan Mountains in the North, this Buddhist monarchy seems to have evolved completely separate from the rest of the world in many aspects. And that, is a blessing in disguise and a source of many surprising and interesting facts about Bhutan.

It is this self-sufficiency and physical isolation that has brought on some of the most surprising yet fascinating elements that make the country so special and captivating to the visitor. After spending nine days criss-crossing mountains through roads that seemed impassable and spending time with my guide-chaperone, there were countless interesting moments and many “aha” realisations that made me wonder: “Where have we, in the rest of the world, in the West, gone wrong?”.
