What you'll do
Nestled in the heart of the Himalayas, Bhutan is said to be one of the happiest countries in the world—and it's no coincidence. Dedicated to maintaining a healthy Gross National Happiness, the kingdom has carefully preserved its lush forests; majestic, snow-capped mountains; elaborate monasteries; and ancient Buddhist traditions—while making space for the next generation of art, entrepreneurship, and innovation. Join us as we explore this delicate balance of old and new—of GDP and GNH, technological progress and historic preservation—as we zig-zag across the country. We’ll visit start-up centers and ancient dzongs, meet hip-hop dancers as well as spiritual leaders, and glimpse urban life springing up in the shadow of a giant, golden Buddha statue, serenely contemplating the capital city below. This trip is offered by Atlas Obscura. Once you've reserved your spot, our team will be in touch to help you prepare for the trip. Please note that flights to and from Paro are not included in the trip cost. This trip is limited to 12 travelers.
