Explore blissful Bhutan on foot with Ramblers Walking Holidays. When trekking the trails of this beautiful country, you’ll no doubt notice the happy smiling faces of all the locals who greet you. Their friendly faces add to the country’s warm, welcoming ambience, which makes it such a pleasure to visit. This isn’t a coincidence; Bhutan considers happiness to be a greater reflection of success than financial gain. In 1972, the king of Bhutan even said it for himself, historically going on record to say “Gross National Happiness is more important than Gross National Product". In 2008, this quote was brought to life, when Bhutan instituted Gross National Happiness as the official goal of the government, replacing GDP in the process. However, the happy locals aren’t the only highlight of this country. Bhutan is also known for its impressive monasteries, vast landscapes, as well as its breathtaking mountains and valleys, all of which make for spectacular viewing.
