Bhutan is one of the world's most isolated nations, hiding in the Himalayas. In keeping with its cultural identity, Bhutan focuses on two issues: protecting the natural environment and religious beliefs. With that motto, Bhutan does not massively develop the tourism industry.
Bhutanese people attend a local festival.
