Bhutan, known locally as the Dragon Kingdom, is one of the most preserved environments in the world. Over 70% of the country is untouched forest. It boasts some of the cleanest rivers you could possibly see. In fact, it is the only carbon negative nation in the world. It’s remoteness and mystique prohibit most people, but it is one of the best adventure destinations in the Himalayas. Opportunities for hiking, mountain biking (a favorite of the 4th king of Bhutan), rafting, and culturally immersive experiences abound.
