Memorial Chorten, Thimphu
Bhutan or the “Land of the Peaceful Dragon” is a country of sprawling forests, venerated monasteries, overpowering fortresses; lush green valleys fed by bountiful rivers and age-old practices. Cultivated fields surrounded by pitched roof houses with their typical trefoil-shape windows and Dzongs (fortresses) dominate the scenery with their sheer size. Its people are hardworking, vibrantly attired and deeply religious while the land is immaculate.
Undoubtedly, Bhutan is home to many spiritual dzongs, fortresses and monasteries and this itinerary
is ideal for many tourists wanting to visit these hermitages and interact with the monks and residents
within a stipulated time.
Out of the many breathtaking sights one of the most striking is the Taktsang Monastery that is
suspended on the side of a vertical cliff 3000m north of Paro. Also known as Tiger’s Nest, it is the
unofficial symbol of Bhutan. A pilgrimage site for both tourists and locals, keeping the spirituality
aside, it is moreover a hiker’s delight. Hiking up to a wooden teahouse provides you a close view of
the monastery and is a complete joy for photographers.
Bhutan also is known as the Dragon Kingdom is a rich mosaic of different cultures, traditions, lifestyles, ethnic groups, languages and belief systems. It is astounding that a country with a population of just over half a million speaks as many as nineteen different dialects and a few major languages. Diverse as it may seem, yet the Bhutanese socio-culture fabric is well interlaced and harmonized mainly due to the common thread of simple Buddhist values that the people share. Our cultural tours are the easiest way to get a taste of Bhutan. Each town has a Dzong dating back from the 1600s, and many old temples and monasteries.
The Paro Spring Festival makes way for various cultural dances and displays. The main highlight of this festival is the unfolding of the gigantic Thangka (embroidered painting) at dawn just before sunrise which is absolutely breathtaking. Colorful Bhutanese attire and their spicy and zesty food are some of the other highpoints.
Bhutan or the “Land of the Peaceful Dragon” is a country of sprawling forests, venerated
monasteries, overpowering fortresses; lush green valleys fed by bountiful rivers and age-old
