Bhutan wellness guide

One of the last remaining Vajrayana Buddhist kingdoms

Bhutan has long been a hidden gem, known only to a few intrepid travelers. In recent years however, Bhutan has become more accessible, and word of its beauty and uniqueness has begun to spread. With its stunning scenery, rich culture, and friendly people, Bhutan is an increasingly popular travel destination.

There are many reasons to visit Bhutan, but one of the most appealing is the country’s focus on wellness and spirituality. In Bhutan, wellbeing is considered to be more important than material wealth, and this is reflected in both Bhutanese culture and policy.

The concept of Gross National Happiness (GNH) was first proposed by Bhutan’s fourth king, Jigme Singye Wangchuck, in the 1970s. GNH is based on the belief that true development must take into account not just economic growth, but also the happiness and wellbeing of citizens. The GNH index measures progress in nine different domains, including health, education, environment, good governance, and psychological wellbeing.

Today, Bhutan is often referred to as the “happiest country in Asia” and the “last Shangri-La.” If you’re looking for a place to reconnect with your sense of well-being, Bhutan is the perfect destination. Here, you can explore Bhutan’s rich culture, hike in stunning landscapes, and practice meditation and yoga in peaceful surroundings.
