THE STORY: In the country with the world’s most ambitious commitment to protect nature, where the king values the happiness of his people above the money they make, a threat is looming. Bhutan’s primary revenue source is hydropower; quotas with India would require damming every last river. A man named “Good Karma” guides an expedition to keep his kingdom’s mightiest river wild and free.
