About Bhutan

Often called some variation of "the world's least explored country", Bhutan is a state that elicits wonder. Officially a Kingdom, the stunningly mountainous country can often be looked over, mostly thanks to its location landlocked between such powerful neighbors as China and India. However, those who do take a step inside Bhutan are treated to an enchanted land full of monasteries, mountain retreats, and stunning natural landscapes. Notably, the country is not home to a single traffic light.
