The tourism policy in place was designed to protect and share the
country’s incredible landscape with tourists while keeping it special
for the locals too, a point that supports their pioneering philosophy of
Gross National Happiness, so the question that remains is whether the
income from tourism, which is substantial, is spread widely enough? When
you have a small number of tourists in very defined areas the risk with
their strategy is that the benefits of tourism will not be widely felt,
but $65 out of every $250 fee goes towards funding the free education
and healthcare that the Bhutanese government provides for its citizens
and although about 30% of the rural population live under the poverty
line, you don’t see beggars, slums or homelessness, so they must be
doing something right.
The trek reaches a maximum altitude of 4,750 m. It starts from Paro
Gunetshawa passing through rolling alpine meadows to the base of
mountain Jomolhari and ends in Paro Gunetshawa. You will also explore
