To the land of peace, harmony, happiness and a unique culture!
Considering Bhutan is the only country in the world where gross national happiness is emphasized upon, instead of the GDP, it comes as no surprise that it is one of the safest countries in the world.
Landlocked in the Himalayas, the country boasts of some gorgeous rivers, lofty mountains and beautiful people.
GoMissing invites you to soak in the heart warming culture and hospitality of the Bhutanese people.
