Tour Summary

Thanks to our principle of Gross National Happiness which clearly states that Bhutan must maintain 60 percent forest coverage in all times to come. Bhutan at the moment has over 72 percent forest coverage and thus, we proudly proclaim ourselves as the carbon sink. And because Bhutan is thickly covered by forest, biodiversity is very rich. Bhutan is habitat of many rare and endangered animals, birds and insects. From golden languor to white-belled heroin to black-necked cranes, and many more, Bhutan envisions protecting all those animals and birds that co-exist with humans. In this tour programme, you will be travelling throughout the country to find what Bhutan has to offer from its rich nature.
