Talk to any tourists what Bhutan means to them and you will be overwhelmed by the myriad of reasons as there are leaves on a Cypress tree, the national tree of the quaint kingdom. Its capacity to survive in rugged harsh terrain is compared to simplicity, which aptly defines the life of the Bhutanese.

This may have been resulted from deeply rooted Buddhist folklore and mythology, featuring paramount deeds and supernatural beings.
It is encouraged to let your imagination flow, while visualizing the spirit of Bhutan’s history, rather than rationalizing her historical truth. The leadership of the third king brought The Land of the Thunder Dragon out from its medieval heritage and seclusion, though against the tide of modernization, Bhutan has cautiously controlled growth in a concerted effort to safeguard their national identity.
