FACTS ABOUT BHUTAN
  • 1. Bhutan is one of the last countries in the world to introduce television to its people. The government lifted a ban on TV—and on the Internet—only 11 years ago.
  • 2. Anyone found guilty of killing a highly endangered and culturally sacred black-necked crane could be sentenced to life in prison.
  • 3. Bhutanese manners dictate that you are to refuse food whenever it’s offered to you. The tradition is to say the words “meshu meshu” and cover your mouth with your hands. You can give in, though, after two or three offers.
  • 4. At 24,840 feet, Gangkhar Puensum is the highest point in Bhutan—and the highest unclimbed mountain in the world.
  • 5. Bhutan is the only nation in the world where the sale of tobacco is banned.
  • 6. Thimpu is one of just two capital cities in Asia that does not have a single traffic light. (The other is Pyongyang, North Korea.) There was such public outcry when local officials installed a single signal that it was quickly removed, and a traffic officer was re-assigned to the intersection.
  • 7. One-third of Bhutan’s population is under the age of 14; its median age is 22.3 years.
