The Land of Gross National Happiness
Bhutan is the only country that values Gross National Happiness over Gross Domestic Product. Each year the King and the government contemplate how they can improve the happiness and wellbeing of their people, and how to protect their pristine natural landscapes.
During our first visit to Bhutan, we remember our group feeling exhilarated as we flew over Mount Everest to land on an airport strip surrounded by lush green forests. The second you walk off the plane and breathe in the fresh mountain air you know you are ready to transform in every area of your life.
What makes Bhutan special - beyond the natural beauty - is the generosity and kindness you see in the eyes of the locals combined with the powerful spiritual energy that is cultivated by the monks and monasteries located throughout this tiny nation.
On your Abroad Quest you will be guided by local wisdom keepers on how to experience the best Bhutan has to offer, while visiting places few tourists will ever access.
