Tourism in Bhutan was introduced in 1974 during the coronation of His Majesty the 4th King. Since then Bhutan has pursued a cautious policy in tourism guided by principles of sustainability that is today the envy of many destinations in the world. The Kingdom of Bhutan has declared 2015 as ‘Visit Bhutan Year’ to celebrate His Majesty the 4th King of Bhutan’s 60th birthday. To commemorate the occasion, a host of special attractions, events and festivals are taking place throughout this year across Bhutan. The Tourism Council of Bhutan invites the world to join the Bhutanese in celebrating 60 years of Gross National Happiness.
