Photos by @ciriljazbec | Bhutan is one of the world's remaining biodiversity hotspots. Fir trees create a dense cover in this forest. Approximately 72 percent of Bhutan is covered by forests. The country's government has a mandate that 60 percent will be protected for all time. Despite the government's environmental commitment, Bhutan's glaciers are retreating and melting, causing dangerous floods and resource scarcity. Hiking amidst these trees felt almost spiritual as if I encountered the Great Forest Spirit from the fantastic Miyazaki’s Princess Mononoke film.
