The mountainous geography and wide range of climatic conditions have shaped the people’s ways of life. Bhutan is a trekker’s paradise and an environmentalist’s dream. With 72 percent of the country under forest cover, Bhutan’s pristine ecology is home to rare and endangered flora and fauna. This sacred land is the last bastion of the Vajrayana school of Mahayana Buddhism, which provides the essence of a unique identity for the 750,000 people. Untouched by rampant development, Bhutan affords today’s visitor the chance to experience an intact and thriving culture. The people are open, friendly and genuinely welcome visitors as valued guests, (rather than guests of value).
