Bhutan – The Last Secret [Global Limits]

Bhutan - Global

You’ve run through the desert, through the jungle, in the mountains and in the snow BUT have you ever run in the happiest country on earth? Bhutan – The Last Secret hosted by Global Limits.

Bhutan is the only country in the world that measures the progress of society in terms of “Gross National Happiness”. Join us and experience the charm and magic of one of the world’s most secret countries.

The small and unique east-Himalayan country nests between India and China. You are going to find virgin forests, extraordinary flora and fauna, fabulous mountain vistas, imposing monasteries, palaces, and rustic village homes. You are going to meet friendly locals with a general focus on wellness and well-being. Experience an amazing landscape and immerse yourself in traditional Buddhist culture.

The race starts at the terrific situated Punakha Dzong, definitely the most beautiful dzong in Bhutan. Run through rural villages and cross three 3500m passes. Stay in farmhouses more than a century old, or in the small cells of the young monks in a monastery at 3500m.

Finish the race at the most spectacular and mystic monastery on earth, hanging in the cliffs at an altitude of 3000m with an outstanding view to the Paro valley, the Taktshang Goemba, also known as “The Tiger’s Nest”.

Bhutan’s only international airport is in Paro. It is located at an altitude of 7300 ft above sea level and surrounded by mountains and hills as high as 16,000 feet. The national airline Druk Air and the private airline Bhutan Airlines are currently the only airlines that operate international flights.
