Bhutan, the land of the happy! Politics, the bustle of the people, all this is judged here on a very own scale. For us, GDP is the measure of all things, the gross national product. It shows how our economy is growing or shrinking. Very different in Bhutan. This is about gross social happiness: What is good for human happiness is good. And so important that it was even enshrined in the constitution. Unique in the international community of our world! The search not only for my own happiness, but the pursuit of happiness for my fellow man - of course, this has its roots in Buddhism. But despite all roots in tradition, Bhutan combines yesterday with today. People are open to world affairs, the country is opening up to tourism, albeit cautiously. The hand is reluctantly put into the fold of the garb while talking, and silence makes a good conversation here. Nevertheless, guests are warmly welcomed!
The rivers of Bhutan have dug their way from north to south and divided the land in a fan-shaped manner. Through these valleys leads our trekking, sleeping in comfortable, comfortable lodges and good hotels. In the north of the country, near the border with Tibet, 7500 meters high Himalayan giants defy. Bhutan forbids the ascent of its highest peaks out of respect for the mountain. Of course we do without it. We walk through an intact nature and deserted areas. The accent of this trek is not on the performance but on the experience. In the spirit of this land of happiness.
