Bhutan, officially the Kingdom of Bhutan and popularly known as Land of the Thunder Dragon, is a paradise for those travelers, who want to explore the unknown and are willing to take the road less traveled. I think that the ‘Happiest Country’ is an underrated place as not many people know about the splendors of this beautiful destination. You will not see huge crowds of tourists there, but ranging from picturesque lush green valleys to happening nightlife, Bhutan has something for everyone.

It took me one week and 20 thousand rupees (including everything- conveyance, accommodation, etc.) to explore major attractions of Bhutan- Paro, Haa, Phuentsholing, Thimpu and Punakha. The country, measuring its development in ‘Gross National Happiness’, is able to keep its citizens content. You will know this yourself when you will talk with them.

Go through the pictures (clicked by me) below to experience the variety Bhutan has to offer. Check out the virtual tour of the 'Buddhist kingdom on the Himalayas' here-

Thanks a lot for the appreciation:) I went with my three other friends. It was a budget trip, but still we didn't have to compromise on our comfort and safety. Trust me, Bhutan is a 'must-visit' destination. You should definitely explore it :)
