Bhutan is the only country which does not support tourism. It levies  a heavy surcharge to its visitors except Citizens SAARC countries. As a result this country has not yet been destroyed by tourism or commercialized because of Tourism. So the beauty is intact.
Bhutan’s economy is  mainly dependent on selling electricity to India.
Bhutan being ruled by a nice King, has been able to preserve its natural wealth and culture. You will find all officers well dressed in Gho. You’ll even find all buildings outside architecture similar. MNC hoardings and signboards are prohibited.

  4. I had visited Bhutan in August during rains.
    It rains a lot in Bhutan.
    Advantages of visiting in August: Greenery/ low tourist/ non-peak season rates of hotels etc.
    Disadvantages: Road condition and too much rain.
