Do you want to visit the Kingdom of Bhutan, Land of the Dragon?
In Bhutan, you can witness ancient architecture and dramatic natural landscapes preserved in the best possible way.
Since Bhutan opened its doors in the 1970s, countless visitors have been given the chance to explore its snow-capped mountains – the Jakar Dzong, Trongsa Dzong and Kyichu Lhakhang. Why not trek in the magnificent rugged terrain of the country, visit its beautiful monasteries and bask in the most tranquil atmosphere?
Go to Thimphu, the mellow capital of this Himalayan kingdom. Enjoy local dishes of red peppers and red rice. Drink Red Panda beer and asa or rice liquor. Your visit to the country could be the food adventure you’ve been looking for.
Stroll along the streets of Paro and explore the colourful wooden shops and restaurants of the town. The Bhutanese people are well-educated and fun-loving, so you’ll quickly fall in love with them.
However, if you want a more spiritual trip, visit Taktsang Goemba or the Taktsang Palphug Monastery. Literally meaning “the tiger’s nest,” this is the first temple in Bhutan. It’s a sacred site located on the Paro Valley cliff.
Because Bhutan has preserved its culture and the environment, it’s home to many natural wonders. Here, you can experience the best forest hikes and engage in bird watching across countless national parks.
A trip to Bhutan is for adventurers at heart. You can learn about a new culture, eat local dishes, get in touch with your spiritual side, rediscover nature and participate in many physical activities.
