The tour revolves round understanding the concept of GNH. The term GNH or Gross National Happiness is a development philosophy or an attempt to measure development based on well-being and not so much on the conventional concept of GDP. Gross National Happiness has four pillars, which are given below.

Equitable and equal socio-economic development,
Promotion and preservation of cultural and spiritual heritage,
Protection and conservation of environment,
Good governance.

In this tour we will experience happiness from the day we land at Paro airport.
The draft itinerary has been developed considering the interest of groups in studying and seeing how the GNH concepts are infused in our day-to-day affairs and in our developmental processes. The itinerary can be revised in feasible order, to incorporate local events or celebrations depending on your interest
