“Happiness is a place”. This statement is proven right even before you land at the Paro airport.As you approach through the green foothills and few steep turns at the tiny airstrip you will start imagining about upcoming excitement and happiness this land has to offer you.
Bhutan is completely different world on its own. Bhutan and Nepal are both Himalayan countries and share almost the same language. Nevertheless the culture, heritage and natural beauties these two countries offer are distant to one another.
The happiness and peacefulness can be felt in the air. The road from Paro to Thimpu is 65 kms long. The winding wide road up and down the green hills will make you imagine how Bhutan could construct such beautiful road in these almost inaccessible high hills.
