People in Bhutan have infectious smiles. Smiles that elicit warmth and instantly brighten up a dull day. This endearing little Buddhist kingdom boasts of an enviable charm that is hard not to covet. Having earned the well-deserved title of 'The Happiest Country in Asia' Bhutan continues to stun us with its awe-inspiring landscapes, rich cultural identity and warm people.
Bhutanese terrain – majestic mountains, sweeping valleys and some gorgeous views – makes it conducive to adventure activities, winding leisure hikes or rigorous treks, for those up for a challenge.
Out of the many gruelling treks around the region, one that stands out for its tough trail and spectacular views is the Jhomolhari trek, which can roughly be covered within a period of 9 days.
