Modern Life Stress
Almost every country in the world is so busy after developing themselves that they are turning a blind eye to the environmental degradation which comes along with it. Hence, along with the ever-increasing stress levels of high living standards of the modern era, we are now left to deal with the deteriorating sights of greenery around us which once gave peace to our souls.
Antidote to the modern-day anxieties
While some of us accept environmental degradation as the price for living in an advanced era and go about our lives as usual; there are others who have reached their limits of seeing their souls being polluted every day. Along these lines, if you are one among such individuals looking for a way out of these modern-day anxieties, then Bhutan Pelyab Tours would be more than happy to guide you through some of the reasons as to why taking a tour to Bhutan would certainly help you rid your souls off of all those impurities that you have collected over time. The reasons are as follows:
- What you will see is what it has always been
Bhutan is a landlocked country in the Himalayas with a total area of just 47,000 km2 and a population of less than a million people which is sandwiched between the two biggest nations in the world- China and India. But contrary to all these, Bhutan has never been colonized and maintains its sovereignty to date. Thus, a tour to Bhutan basically means a chance to witness a country in almost a raw state unaffected by changes- a truly uplifting experience for the soul.
- Strong emphasis on environmental protection
The Government of Bhutan follows a holistic approach towards development called GNH (Gross National Happiness), meaning the current and future wellbeing and welfare of the people of Bhutan will never be put on the line for the sake of GDP (Gross Domestic Product) or anything else for that matter. Hence, to keep up with this approach, the constitution of kingdom of Bhutan clearly states that 60% of its land is to remain under forest cover for all times to come. Even to this day Bhutan maintains a pristine forest cover of 72% and it is because of this reason that anyone who comes to Bhutan will basically receive a once in a life time opportunity to be in the arms of mother nature herself.
- One of the only global bio-diversity hotspots in the world
With such a mandate on protecting environment as the one previously mentioned in place, Bhutan has earned a spot as one of the only global bio-diversity hotspots in the world. With the aforementioned percentage of forest cover, Bhutan not only produces 2.2 million tons of Carbon dioxide a year but also sequesters three times the same amount, making it both a carbon-neutral and carbon-negative country. That way, a visit to Bhutan would certainly help your soul with a much-needed rejuvenation that it deserves.
- Safari in its true sense
Due to its pristine of the pristine forest cover, Bhutan is home to some of the endangered animals in the world that have gone extinct in other parts of the world, such as Asian Elephant, Tiger, Red Panda, Himalayan Black Bear, Black Necked Crane, Himalayan Musk Deer, Asiatic Black Bear, Sloth Bear, Leopards and Grey Wolf. While any tours to Bhutan does not promise you a chance to see these animals in action since Bhutan does not believe in disturbing their natural habitat and order for the purpose of leisure; that does not diminish the possibility of coming across one of these beauties nonetheless- a sight that is rewarding in itself for our poor souls.
- A chance to give back to mother nature
As part of keeping up with its GNH approach, Bhutan follows a “High Value, Low Impact” tourism policy which makes its mandatory for all tourists to get in touch with any one of the local tour operators registered under the TCB (Tourism Council of Bhutan) and apply for a tour package of their choice that is pre-planned, prepaid and guided- this is to protect its well-preserved nature and culture from the negative impacts of mass tourism. As per the MDP (Minimum Daily Package) set by TCB which is basically the minimum price of all tours, guests who are travelling in groups of 3 or more are required to pay USD $250 per person per night during peak season (March, April, May, September, October, and November). The MDP is inclusive of meals, accommodations, on ground transportation, tour-guide, and also taxes that will basically be used for free education and medical services which Bhutan offers to its citizen. As a result, you will be doing your bit in helping Bhutan to maintain 60% of its pristine forest cover which in itself will give your soul a sense of pride.
Now that we have established the fact that visiting Bhutan is no less than cleansing of your soul, the only thing left for you to do is get started with your planning process. But that is easier said than done because as cited above, you will first need to choose from one of the many certified local tour operators enlisted under TCB. Or you can simply skip this long and fixating process by allowing Bhutan Pelyab Tours to guide you through this beautiful journey as we guided you through the reasons as to why a trip to Bhutan will help you cleanse your soul.
