Bhutan - A search for happiness

Wandering through the ancient Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan where people worship all living things is a story of happiness. Internal peace is valued here more than a craving for worldly pleasures, and harmony with nature is the supreme principle. A good king cares for the wealth of his people. Instead of Gross Domestic Product, he promotes Gross National Happiness. In its fragile perception of happiness, this small Himalayan kingdom has chosen to follow a strange path. Maybe, it‘s the correct one.
