    Lyonpo

    As we celebrate the Coronation Anniversary of our beloved Fourth Druk Gyalpo, His Majesty Jigme Singye Wangchuck on 2nd June, let us all pay tribute to His Majesty’s visionary leadership in environmental conservation which transformed our country into a natural paradise. Let us all join hands on this auspicious day, to reiterate our dedication to our beloved Fourth Druk Gyalpo by planting trees.

    The healthy forest cover and beautiful natural environment which the people of Bhutan and the world enjoy today, are the result of the profound policies that His Majesty the Fourth Druk Gyalpo charted at the time of His Coronation and pursued with resolute commitment and leadership throughout His golden reign.
