Responsible Travel in Bhutan

Bhutan is the only country in the world to be carbon negative, absorbing three times the carbon it produces. The country's focus on low number of visitors helps the tourism industry keep to good sustainable practices, thus protecting its environment and communities. 

Bhutan's hotels all have an impeccable record when it comes to sustainability, from the luxurious Amankora to modest home stays by using local materials for their buildings, sourcing local ingredients for its dishes or using little to no plastic.

In focus: Bhutan Festivals

Bhutan is famous for its extraordinary festivals, known as tsechus, which play a crucial role in preserving the rich culture and traditions of this last remaining Buddhist kingdom. They are a social highlight for the Bhutanese, many of whom travel from remote rural villages to immerse themselves in Buddhist teachings, receive blessings and meet up with friends they may not have seen since the previous year’s celebrations. Attending a tshechu helps Buddhists gain merit, so they are a big deal and always joyful. Find out more information about Bhutan's Festivals and the best time to travel to Bhutan.
