Huddled in the waving embracement of the Himalayan Range, Bhutan is memorable to people that want to see cultures of the past living along side with the modern world. Bhutan can set an example to the world with pride of it having adopted Gross National Happiness as it central philosophy, but of its thriving cultural heritage, values toward family and its richness in ecology.
It is the last strongholds of Tantric Mahayan Buddhism and also the newest of democracies of the world. His Majesty, the fourth king of Bhutan, Jigme Singye Wangchuck, made his people understand that if Bhutan is to prosper, they should embrace the new polity. Hence in March of 2008, the country went to the ballot box to choose their first set of their members of congress under the new political set up.
The country has a population of not more than 700,000 people who are dispersed on the mountains and in the valleys that live in relative harmony with the milieu. It is believed that the gigantic mountains shadowing over them are the goddesses and gods. Every species of living being is a sacrosanct and deserves honor as man according to the Bhutanese.

It is a landlocked country between two Asian giants, India on the south and China to the north. Bhutan has hardly been influenced by then and followed its own unique way to progress with responsibility.
