Alluded to as the last ‘ Shangri-la” today Bhutan is one of global tourism’s hot- spots not only by virtue of its unique and progressive characteristics but also because of its ‘ High Quality, Low Volume tourism.Bhutan is famous as a kingdom that propounds Gross National Happiness over Gross Domestic Product. This principle is a radical approach in development paradigm. It upholds the integrity of traditional values in social, cultural, and environmental and the political realm whilst still being on a rapid march towards modernization and development. This governing philosophy is a unifying national concept that attributed humane values to the prevailing economic emphasis of development.

As a respected member of the comity of nations, Bhutan has preserved a vibrant traditional cultural and a rich and largely intact natural environment.Bhutan has acquired the label of being one of the most authentic destinations on the global tourist map.
