Bhutan is an extraordinary Himalayan kingdom, which though cloaked in magic and mystery, beautifully embraces all the modern global developments here along with the simple yet fascinating traditional Buddhist culture.
In Bhutan there are amazing Himalayan landscapes everywhere, where snow-capped peaks rise above shadowy gorges cloaked in primeval forests, high altitude trekking trails, and stunning flora and fauna. Then taking up prime positions in these picture book, landscapes are the majestic fortress-like dzongs and monasteries where spectacular tsechus (dance festivals) and outrageous archery competitions take place often. Bhutan also holds many surprises where the rice is red and the chilies aren’t just a seasoning but the main dish. The textiles and handicrafts of Bhutan are worth bringing home for self and as souvenirs.
Although Bhutan is a land that is deeply entrenched in its Buddhist traditions where you’ll find giant protective penises painted at the entrance to many houses and Buddhist Monks everywhere. The Bhutanese are well educated, fun loving and well informed about the global developments around them.
