Bhutan also known as “Land of Thunder Dragon” is simply breath-taking in every aspect. Thanks to the Indo – Bhutan relationship, the Government of Bhutan Tourism doesn't charge minimum fee of $250/- per day to Indian Travellers. Given this opportunity, one shouldn't miss a chance to explore beautiful Bhutan. With a mere population of 797,765 as of 2016, this nation manages to be known as “Land of Gross Domestic Happiness“.
Bhutan, by far, remains the most elusive, yet incredible destination for explorers, trekker, bloggers, and much more. Bhutan is blessed with places like Paro Taktsang (Sacred Monastery), Buddha Point, Dochula Pass, Chorten Monastery and etc. Above all, hiking the legendary Tiger's Nest Monastery is one to be excited about. It's exhausting and exciting in a same way, but will cherish every moment after you reach the destination point. Being a part of the culture, visiting monasteries will ignite the self belief in you. Why miss a chance of rediscovering the self you?
The government has done tremendous work prioritizing on a “Gross National Happiness Index”, Environmental Conservation, and Good Governance instead of measuring Bhutan's Economy Prosperity on wealth. In fact, the Bhutan's constitution states that the country should be at least 60% covered in forest, leading them to be first carbon negative country in the world.

The best month to visit Bhutan is through September to November, with pleasant weather, clear skies and number of festivals. Though there are chances of small rain in the months of March and May, considering that, this month is also ideal for tourism with comfortable temperature. The summer months are ideally hot and rainfall occurrences are frequent. The winter months are very cold and have fewer visitors.
