Bliss in Bhutan

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - MATTA FAIR -

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”.
