Many people are driving miles to water their plants. Bhutan is mainly a Buddhist country and in Buddhism, trees are symbols of health, beauty, longevity and compassion. In Buddhism 108 is a sacred number as it signifies the number of defilements one must overcome to achieve true enlightenment. The Bhutanese constitution favors preservation of forest and mandates 60% of the country to be always covered in forestation.
