Land of the thunder dragon

Text and photos by Fahim Ahmed


Bhutan, the land of thunder dragon, is a quiet mountain nation and the only carbon negative country in the world. The country welcomes tourists with her landscapes, culture, tradition, cuisine and people. The Bhutanese way of life is quite extraordinary:  they can live in harmony within themselves, as well as with nature.


James Hilton wrote the classic novel Lost Horizon, describing ‘Shangri La’, a utopian Himalayan society, isolated from the outside world, filled with happy residents living in a valley. Though no place is perfect, today Bhutan is probably the closest to fit this description.


In a fast changing world, hopefully it remains that way.
