Deep below the streets of Bhutan’s capital, Thimphu, is an amazing treasure – one that, until now, nobody except a very few of Bhutan’s richest family have ever seen. However, with the release of these amazing photos by a former servant of that family, the truth can finally be revealed about the Penjor family treasure.
At age 58, Sangay Penjor is Bhutan’s richest man, having amassed an estimated fortune of over US$92 billion dollars through his investment in the country’s energy and mineral industries. Born into a poor family, Penjor made his first million by the age of 23 after discovering a natural deposit of the valuable mineral tantalum in Bhutan’s north east. With his fortune from mining, Penjor continued to invest heavily in other industries in Bhutan, and is now the richest man in the country, and believed to be the 23rd richest in the whole world. But until now, nobody has seen photos of his amazing treasure collection.
