Top Attractions in Bhutan

There is no denial to the fact that Bhutan is the happiest country, at least in the whole of Asia. The land of the Thunder Dragon is a remote kingdom holding on to its centuries’ old Buddhist cultures while trying to cope with the present modernization. A remarkable land with museums, monks and mountains, Bhutan has copious reasons to fascinate travelers from all around the world despite of its stringent tourism policy. Foreign tourists have their own reasons to step their footsteps onto this mystical land of the Druk Yul. While some visit the sacred nation in quest of spiritual realization, others are lured by the Buddhist culture, the traditional architecture and the cultural heritages that the country possesses.

While Bhutan may be known to the world as a small country nestled on the laps of the Himalayas, not many know where it is actually situated. The small kingdom sandwiched between India and China has always been bracketed with mountains, religious & cultural heritages and gross national happiness. From the country’s countless offerings, here is a list of the most famed attractions of Bhutan:
