Bliss in Bhutan
IT is hard to imagine that a country the size of Indiana with the population of Alaska, tucked in the Himalaya Mountains and accessible only by two aeroplanes, is the “Happiest Country” in the world.
Landlocked between India, Tibet, China and Nepal, Bhutan is known as the “Switzerland of Asia” for its snowy mountains and lush green valleys, with a climate that varies with elevation.
Witness a perfect blend between modern technologies and ideas that has become a part of Bhutan, alongside its desire to preserve ancient traditions and culture in the “Land of The Thunder Dragon”.
AF Travel offers different types of packages for you to experience the “happiest country” in the world. Happiness Tour on the Roof of the
