Cradled deep in the creases of the majestic Himalaya, the tiny Kingdom of Bhutan is veiled in mystery. Owing to strict tourism policies that regulate the number of visitors, the Bhutanese government has successfully safeguarded the country from the mass tourism that has afflicted many of Bhutan’s Asian neighbours; making Bhutan one of the world’s least-traveled countries has also made it one of the world’s most enigmatic. Enveloped by the Indian plains to the south and the mountainous Tibetan regions of China to the north, Bhutan is home to a wide range of breathtaking natural topography, disparate climatic regions, and a proud people with a colourful culture. “The Land of the Thunder Dragon” is doubtless one of the most remote and exotic destinations on the planet.
