Bhutan, Cambodia     is the     new    “must-see”    destination in Southern Asia.     

“Bhutan"  has bubbled up in the collective consciousness. World’s last remaining Buddhist Kingdom.

Known as,  the Dragon Kingdom

Beauty of the Bhutan Lands

             

Beauty of Cosmopolitan Bhutan      

 

 

Bhutan Culture and Tradition

This tiny Buddhist kingdom perched high in the Himalayas, a peaceful nation emerging as a big draw. Attracting those in search of a spiritual journey, a hiking adventure, trekking into virgin forests, tiptoeing into temples, passing through villages where men and women still go about life in traditional dress – or just a chance to experience a place before the rest of the world gets there. “Among those who have been everywhere, seen everything,” are adding Bhutan to their rosters. 

 

Bhutan – a Brigadoon of astonishing beauty – a travel hot spot:

Unique and full of MYSTIQUE both culturally and environmentally,

Bhutan has developed the Philosophy  "GNH"    Gross National Happiness;   where development is measured using a holistic approach of well-being

Bhutan's People

Mostly Bhotias, who call themselves Drukpas (dragon people) are ethnically related to the Tibetans and practice a form of Buddhism closely related to the Lamaism of Tibet; many Bhutanese live in monasteries. Dzongka, the official language, is also basically Tibetan. In S Bhutan there is a sizable minority of Nepalese (about a third of the population), who practice Hinduism and speak various Nepalese dialects

                  

Culture & Tradition

Bhutan has been blessed with a sustained, rich cultural heritage.     

Bhutan decided long ago that we will never be a military power, we will never be an economic force, so to survive we must have a distinct identity. This is the identity you see; our clothes, language, the architecture. You look around and feel like you are in a different world.  

This preservation of culture and identity is crucial to Bhutan in the quickly globalizing world. Bhutan’s unique identity is reflected through the magnificent architecture, dress, traditional ceremonies, archery, and the everyday Bhutanese way of life. Bhutan’s traditional beliefs and customs stress respect for all sentient beings and encourage values such as tolerance, compassion, respect, and generosity. It’s important that Bhutan never sees its culture diminished in any way. There is delicate balance between the changes brought upon by the rapidly modernizing and globalizing world and the traditional Bhutanese way of life.

    

Bhutanese Cuisine

Cooking Bhutanese food has got to be one of the most uncomplicated ways of cooking. Yet, if you do it right, the food that you cook can be exquisite.

Employs a lot of red rice (like brown rice in texture), but with a nutty taste, the only variety of rice that grows at high altitude), buckwheat, and increasingly maize. The diet in the hills also includes chickenyakmeat, dried beefpork, pork fat and mutton. Soups and stews of meat, rice, fernslentils, and dried vegetables spiced with chili peppers and cheese are a favorite meal during the cold seasons. Zow shungo is a rice dish mixed with leftover vegetables. Ema datshi,made very spicy with cheese and chili peppers (akin to chili con queso), might be called the national dish for its ubiquity and the pride that Bhutanese have for it.

   

  

Bhutanese Cosmopolitan Dinning

When offered food, one says Meshu Meshu, covering one's mouth with the hands in refusal according to Bhutanese manners, and then gives in on the second or third offer.

Explore Bhutan

Adventure

Bhutan is not just about dzongs and monasteries. The pristine environment, the lush green forests and gushing rivers and rolling mountains is an ideal setting for some adrenaline pumping outdoor activities. Over the years, a lot of opportunities have been developed to satisfy those adventurous souls who are always on the quest to plunge into a world of thrill and excitement.

Trekking  to Tiger's Nest Monasteris is of the most exciting adventurous activities popular in Bhutan.

You may also want to plan for the following ways to take in the Natural Beauty of Bhutan.

Mountain Biking

The tourism industry recognised mountain biking as a viable product a few years ago and since then it has gained considerable popularity, both among the visitors and the locals. A number of dedicated trails are located in Phobjikha and Punakha and similar cycling excursions are possible in Paro, Thimphu and Bumthang with its beautiful wide valleys. For those looking to experience more, a cross-country biking tour takes you along the winding highway which involves a lot of uphill peddling at times and negotiating sharp bends and corners.  

River Rafting

These river activities are new to Bhutan. Over the past decade, some of the many rivers in the country have been explored and are considered to be potential for some of the best river rafting in the world. For a beginner, the easy gentle float on the Mo Chhu in Punakha which stretches to about 6 km, starting at the Khamsum Yuelley Namgyal Chorten point and ends past the Punakha Dzong is a perfect trip. 

Fishing

Though fishing is generally an undesired activity and frowned upon by the Bhutanese, individuals can obtain license (Nu. 500 per day) to fish in its rivers. However, some strict measures are in place. Fishing is prohibited within a kilometre of a monastery, a lhakhang, a dzong or any religious centre. Fishing season is ‘closed’ for the months of October to December every year and fishing is also banned on some auspicious days. ‘Fly-fishing’ is, however, picking up among the locals and the tourists as an alternative sport to fishing.

Golf

Bhutan may not have the first class facilities to offer golf enthusiasts from around the world, but it surely makes up by giving the thrill to be golfing in one of the most remote golf courses in the world. Placed beautifully overlooking the magnificent Tashichho Dzong in the heart of the capital, The Royal Thimphu Golf Course has a nine-hole course (par 34, 2800yards). It is the only public golf course and visitors are welcome to experience the opportunity to play in an environment very different.
