There are some interesting facts about Bhutan which not only tourists but every one else should know, which are given below

  • Bhutan is the only Carbon Negative Country in the World

    Bhutan is the only nation in the world that is carbon negative, or more carbon dioxide is absorbed than is produced. Since they cause pollution and the annual emission of around 2.2 million tonnes of carbon dioxide, firewood gathering and industrial development have become urgent issues for Bhutan.

  • There are no traffic lights in Bhutan

    With sharp turns in the hilly areas, Bhutan’s roads are a somewhat dangerous journey. On these routes, herds of animals including cows and buffalo can be seen roaming at will. Even passing individuals pause to say hello to one another. However, traffic signals are not necessary in Bhutan since people there drive very slowly and safely.

  • Plastic is banned in bhutan

    In 1999, the first ban on plastic bags was implemented. Even after it was put into effect a second time in 2005 and a third time in 2009, it failed due to a lack of alternatives. It has now been implemented in 2019 as a result of Bhutan’s urgent requirement to manage garbage. To educate people, information on substitutes such as homemade carry bags, jute bags, and hand woven bags is being distributed.

  • You cannot smoke in public places

    Another useful information and interesting fact about Bhutan is that in Bhutan, it is illegal to smoke or use tobacco products in public spaces like restaurants, movie theatres, and streets, among others. There are designated sites for smokers, and anyone caught violating the rule faces a 3- to 5-year prison sentence.

  • Bhutan has The Highest Unclimbed Peak in the World

    Here is a fact about Bhutan that not many people are probably aware of. The tallest mountain in Bhutan, Gangkhar Puensum, has never been climbed. It is 7570 metres above sea level. Since 1987, Bhutan has prohibited access to the peak. Before it, numerous unsuccessful attempts to scale the mountain had been made. Because the maps were so inaccurate, the first crew to try to reach the peak was unable to even locate it!

  • It’s illegal to kill animals

    Bhutan is known as a country that values animals because of this characteristic. No one is permitted to kill any animals or birds in Bhutan. They are fairly serious about protecting the environment. But they do consume a lot of meat. The original Buddhist teachings that support this principle prohibit the killing of any living being. The meat is all imported from abroad. The government has recently considered outright prohibiting its consumption.

  • Bhutan has never been ruled by an external entity

    Bhutan has never been dominated by a foreign power, in part because of its inaccessible terrain and because many kings and gurus who struck wise agreements with the British as they were establishing their base in India and Nepal employed these strategies and decisions.
