Bhutan

 

Bhutan is an extraordinary place, where it seems that time has not passed. It is located in the heart of the Himalayas, which has allowed living in a kind of voluntary isolation from the world. Since his arrival the visitor is confronted with a clean and unpolluted environment, with scenery and majestic architecture, with hospitable people and a fascinating and unique culture in all its purity. Despite its potential and all its resources, Bhutan is one of the poorest countries of Asia, who lives in the conflict to maintain its ancient traditions and modernization without losing their strong convictions and Buddhist lifestyle.
