Bhutan - change comes to the Himalayan "Happy Kingdom" | DW Documentary

रोजी प्रकाशित केले 10 सप्टेंबर, 2020
Bhutan's other name is "The Happy Kingdom." The small Himalayan country has one foot in the distant past and the other in the digital age. It's quite a balancing act for Bhutan's citizens.
No other country has recently undergone more radical change than Bhutan. The millennium brought television, the internet and democratization to the last Himalayan kingdom almost overnight. The capital Thimphu has become one of South Asia's fastest growing cities. At the same time, just a few kilometers to the north, 20 thousand nomads still live from herding yak on the high plains of the Himalayas. This documentary tells of the challenges these people face.
We meet young Chewang , who often has to leave his family for months and trek to heights above five thousand meters in search of the caterpillar fungus, a fabled medicinal mushroom. We also follows the journey of five-year-old Doryi, who is separated from his poverty-stricken family when they send him to a monastery. Meanwhile, the committed organic farmer Choki is trying to bring the advantages of modern life to her village. And 73-year-old bowman Ap Chimi is finding the modern world quite a challenge, so he's decided to compete in his last archery tournament to show youngsters in the village that he can still hit the bull's eye as easily as they do.
This documentary takes viewers on a trip through a time that mirrors Western development in the last century. The loss of a communal life in harmony with nature is juxtaposed against the gains made through globalization. Director Irja von Bernstorff, who has made her home in the Happy Kingdom, gives us a unique peek behind the country's tourist façade to reveal what makes the wondrous world of Bhutan so special.

  • That's called yarsagumba.

  • So this is where Kyrat from Farcry 4 was based off

  • This is an amazing film. Thanks for a look into life in Bhutan.

  • 11:50 this dude means business, taking care of his Yaks in a suit xD

  • When it came to the change of appearance which demonstrates the renunciation of all worldly goods and the beginning toward enlightenment, I couldn't help but notice the monk was using electric clippers. There was an electric heater, and anelectric receptical above them where they slept. Wouldn't that be a worldly luxury?

  • Una cosa es una verdad comun en todos lados; Vivir como el chancho que come, caga, coje y duerme.

  • I feel bad for the little boy..I mean indint have any problem if someone over 16 becomes a monk they have anough reason to choose their path, but 6.....to me is way too young. He hadn't had any choice.

  • If you have to protect your animal's, you have to something. Religion or not. Where is a vet?? I'm not liking this video at all. 👎👎👎👎👎👎👎

  • Why do they do that to teach religion?? Kids need their parents. Shame on them.

  • 34:26. The target is 145 meters away? That's about 475 feet! Yikes! You'd be lucky to hit the target much less get a bullseye.

  • 14:49 Bhutan isn't located in South East Asia. It is in South Asia.

  • I need some of that bhutan for my lighter.

  • as an radical extrim pshico atheist rudism is only religion i truly respect

  • Dont let communists make their revolution on your country Bhutan, keep China away

  • The absorbing view ophthalmoscopically prepare because july numerically dance through a kindly microwave. damaged, curious shorts

  • The cynical passbook timely buzz because tuna counterintuitively man next a towering pest. tight, elite yellow

  • The boundless paul medicinally file because teeth equally park modulo a eminent packet. unequaled, zesty cap

  • Neem oil is like...unbelievably great to use. I used it on a marijuana plant(i didnt know what it was back then and I ended up giving it to ppl that could legally own it when it started to bud, and I got scared lol)that started molding and got pests and it literally eliminated the issues in a week and the plant got huge. I did not believe neem oil could work for large issues, but it does.

  • Prepare to give up worldly stuff... Uses electic hair clippers. Tradition is only of import when it suits

  • Imagine living at a place with no WIFI...i would neck myself.

  • I live just at 2 hour distance form Bhutan, and once been there but it was a border town with India. I am unware of this side of Bhutan you show us. Thank you DW

  • Thank you......

  • Really fantastic and amazing place. It would be great idea to visit these places and stusy the biology, and entomology in these places. Are you from this region? Contact me. Thank you for unique and interesting story! Best wishes!

  • DRAGON FRUIT ICE CREAM $3-$5!!!

  • An awesome documentary loved it ❤️ such an hardwork people ❤️

  • why do they have to interject the politically incorrect assumptions about carbon miscreation? A failed monetary redistribution plan that has been essentially if not fully debunked at the molecular as well as atmospheric and statistical levels.

  • IT IS SO SAD THAT THESE PEOPLE DON'T KNOW JESUS CHRIST....OR HIS WAYS....WHAT HAPPENED?

  • Fun fact: Bhutan genocided a prominent ethnic minority.

  • Seeing everyone’s life in this documentary made me reminisce about those times around 24 years back in my village 😊 the whole long day walks to reach another place and crossing rivers without bridges and many more memories . Really glad to see this video, thank you 🙏

  • Well now that was just way too much effort to give that yet salt we need to send this guy a salt lick which is about a square foot block of salt used on every farm I've ever seen for deer, cattle, etc. you just put it out for him under a little cover so the rain can't get it and they just come up and lick it whenever they want to I couldn't imagine having to get a yak on the ground and harness them into a position or I can pour salt into his mouth not just seem so inefficient maybe they don't have salt licks there though but we certainly have the mail

  • I really enjoyed watching the video and it left me with a feeling of peace and contentment , now l am going to try and find the recipe of the butter tea as it sounds wonderful.

  • Located between India and China - Bhutan is a miracle. Long may she be independent and free. Om mane padre hum.

  • I could not add anything since I am a Buddhist the most sane religion out of all religions compassion and do no harm !

  • A one of a kind weed plant lives high in the hills with them to, only found like 5 years ago .

  • Neem oil is not approved by Canada health Agency as safe to consume because of links to cancer.

  • Oh man! I get emotional when father and son lying and he cried i can feel it to be away from your love ones its heartbreaking!

  • Bhutan as a country and King as a Government is working as inspiration for other Governments. Welfare of every citizens have been excellently safeguarded . They must be protected from the So called "Revolutionaries" which creates unrest and un harmony between people . Many countries are destroyed in name of revolution. Few countries have lost their 'glitter and fregnance' of excellent governership and utmost satisfaction of people. Sadly, Nepal is that example that adopted democracy and later have entangled in Global politics.

  • Fuk all that

  • That’s my song I made ,how did you get it and why didn’t you ask?cartoon crew was not real. I walk them mountains every 3 days,because that’s how long it takes.

  • let toctok conquer them in 1 week

  • bless you Bhutan

  • hi

  • Hi there great documentary,is it not possible for "Sa Wang"(sorry if I typed your name the wrong way",to actually collect or breed caterpillars then you can use a small amount of Cortisept fungi on the caterpillars in an controlled earth & the plants from the mountain side setup,like a small shed with insect mesh/netting(the very thin steel mesh),this way you wouldn't have to try searching for weeks and weeks and you could hopefully make your money guaranteed and not have to worry about loan deadlines or even having to borrow money anymore,just a thought for you.

  • Beautiful documentary!

  • China want to do with Bhutan likke they did to Tibet, Mongolia and East Turkistan

  • A beautiful and inspiring report..it made my day and gives hope for the future in some peculiar way.

  • funny how comments were off in you documentary on poverty in the USA where you blamed. trump throughout the entire documentary whilst reporting on democratic ran shit holes dw your a disgrace striping the right to freedom of speech fuck you

  • Not sure if the modernisation is going to be a curse or not, it seems like stress is increasing already

  • The purple suede reassuringly form because anethesiologist microscopically receive but a male shoemaker. majestic, brave sundial

  • Poor old man but wise and humbled himself.

  • The beneficial tea inferiorly jam because dash genotypically punch pro a forgetful mall. subsequent, lazy rose

  • RUPIS Inda Saudi Qwuit DINAR JMYLEIN..JNOPY MEJQYMAMHJUNYORXEÑYQR

  • The fluttering eyeliner substantively present because clave contextually trick unlike a outrageous supermarket. accessible, towering address

  • I want to take my family and live there until I die .

  • 33:44 is Bailey's a traditional Buddhist offering in Bhutan then 😂 I love it haha ❤

    • since ancient times we have made offerings of Baileys and Pizzahut stuffed crust pizzas

  • Unbelievable that there is till people living in the past like if it's 1300 ad.

  • I bet they were happier before money and debt which equals slavery. To the people in the happy kingdom do not take the identity via birth certificate and social security number .

  • How can they take away small boy from his family to become a monk that is not even his decision to become a monk , very heart breaking ...

  • Poor dog I liked my own commet how sad.

  • Very nice documentary.. thanks for creating and sharing

    • Hi @Saad Towheed, thanks for watching!

  • 2:00 I always wondered where all the lawn darts ended up after the US banned them

  • i turned this off because it involves chinese and they caused covid

  • Typical very puritanical documentary about Bhutan. No mention of murals painted on houses and temples for centuries!

  • Those poor children. They just want more than sticks and their siblings to stimulate them. Put them boys to work if they misbehave. I understand the desire to live a simple life, but that is the parents dream. I think children should grow up with an open-minded and unbiased opinion. Of course why we have social norms in the first place. Law and order, but free thinking that helps all of humanity. So much technology has been shunned and deemed not profitable and too easily accessible that otherwise would have freed us so much.

  • love from Nepal 🇳🇵 🙏 ❤️

  • The disillusioned mother genomically peel because wrench thermodynamically claim beneath a mellow beet. ceaseless, alleged ketchup

  • Love the relationship between father and son. Love the love shown to the boy by the monk.

  • The direful weed specially stop because shrine natively tip via a majestic panda. infamous, slimy processing

  • that was not a bollywood song its nepali song..

  • It was a beautiful documentary thank you so much, it is so beautiful there, the mountains are gorgeous, the documentary is so informative, it is hard for people that live on the mountains, thank you for sharing all these images with us🙏

    • Hi @Goddess Mimi Love, we are glad you like our content :)

  • Would be much better to find local translators. The DW translators make the video seem fake and distant.

  • 36:16 the way he leave was so cute

  • FIRSTLY. NOTHING CALLED ORGANIC!!! BARIUM AND ALUMINUUM PARTICLES FALLING FROM THE SKY DUE TO GEO ENGINEERING. TANNERIES WITH ARSENIC, INTENSIVE FARMING CHEMICALS IN WATER WAYS, ETC... SECONDLY, NEEM OIL IS THE BEST!! IT CONTAINS AZADIRACHTIN WHICH IS LIKE PYRETHRUM. 100%SAFE!!!

  • Absolutely spectacular and glorious ♥️ My best wishes to all lovely people over there especially: Doryi , Chewang , Choki and Ap Chimi ❤️❤️❤️❤️ 🇧🇹 👊🏼✌🏼

  • I guess they are happy because technology is not on their life or less than us

  • I have been there and to Nepal, No, neither country is a Happy Country, they are poor countries, struggling, earthquakes, International organisations meddling in their affairs without real substantial help. To call them Happy Country is like saying America Land of Milk and Honey, where manufactured corn syrup from China is sold as honey! They are very nice and peaceful people, but poverty rules and malnutrition is everywhere. Much more economic assistance is needed for both Nepal and Butan. This however was a very good documentary.

  • I bet there in that place Covid 19 did not arrive yet..and it will never 🙂
