Bhutan

One country that really takes ecotourism to heart is Bhutan. The government has taken the “high quality, low volume principle” which means that they are limiting the number of tourists and focusing on quality experiences and guests. Although this is met with some criticism, this is to limit the environmental impact on the gorgeous landscapes of Bhutan. 

Outfitted with temples built into mountains and plenty of natural beauty, this is a super underrated place to visit. Bhutan is a really small country tucked between India and Tibet, with Nepal and the rest of the Himalayas to the west. This is a quiet and super safe country that is incredibly inviting and fun to explore. 

There are a total of eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites, so there is so much to discover. One of the most iconic is the Sacred Sites associated with Phajo Drugom Zhigpo and his descendants. It displays gorgeous architecture built into the side of a mountain. 

After a busy day of exploring Bhutan, go back to a small village restaurant to eat the unofficial national dish Ema Datshi, which is chilies and cheese in a stew.
