BHUTAN BOOKS

The Kingdom of Bhutan is known for its culture, architecture and archery, but in many ways, it has remained a mystery until half a century ago.
It is a country steeped in happiness, literally. This is the country that invented Gross National Happiness as a way to measure the country’s success.

Lonely Planet is one of the best. though you likely won’t use this book for hotel and restaurant recommendations like you might with other guidebooks (because your tour operator will be making your hotel reservations on your behalf), there is plenty of other great historical, religious, cultural and other info in this guide to keep you reading up to, during and long after your journey to the Kingdom.

A very detailed guide to Bhutan’s many (but not all) treks. If you’re considering one of the more popular routes, this guide will help you plan and prepare. Times and distances are pretty much on target but realize that new paths on the same routes are often developed, cutting down times (while rain/bad weather can increase times by quite a bit).
