Bhutan: The last Shangri-La
The name Bhutan is thought to have derived from the Sanskrit 'Bhotant', which means 'the end of Tibet', or from 'Bhu-uttan', which means 'high land'. The Bhutanese have referred to their country as Druk Yul - land of the thunder dragon and refer to themselves as Drukpa people. For centuries Bhutan stayed completely secluded from the rest of the world but the Bhutanese are well educated, lively and well informed about the world around them. Recently, Bhutan have been in much news for being the first ever Carbon-Negative Country, positively another great basis for soaring tourism in the coming years.
