1945

In 1961, Bhutan ended its self-imposed isolation when the late King Jigme Dorji Wangchuck, the third monarch, launched the country on a path to modern development. Until then, Bhutan was a self-contained traditional rural society. People cultivated as much as they needed and had a sustainable relationship with nature. They bred animals, wove their own clothes and made pottery. There were practically no motorable roads; yaks, mules and horses were the principal modes of transport.
