2. Solitude

The spiritual and meditative nature of Bhutanese life encourages solitude. So the fact that Bhutan sees few tourists annually means you’re more likely to soak up the culture one-on-one, in a more independent and solitary manner. Though busy in summer and spring, particularly during the Bhutanese festivals, the bureaucracy one must navigate to get to Bhutan weeds out the less enthusiastic travelers from the hell-bent ones – those passionate enough to jump the hurdles of expensive travel fees, limited entry points and flights, and other such extensive planning. Though the red tape may seem a reason NOT to visit Bhutan, it’s a small price to pay for the peace and solitude the country has to offer.
