Bhutan


Bhutan often referred to as the "Land Of The Peaceful Dragon" is still regarded as one of the last "Shangri-La". Its spectacular mountain terrain, varied flora and fauna and its unique ancient Buddhist monasteries enhances this just imagery. It is in the relatively unexplored pockets of Asia which allows only a limited number of discerning travelers to enter the country in order to protect its fragile environment and culture.

Bhutan a purely Buddhist Himalayan Kingdom is unsurpassed in its scenic majesty and vibrant culture. The kingdom shares with Nepal and the world's greatest concentration of mountains and living heritage of Buddhism. The fifty minutes flight from Kathmandu to Paro can truly be described as a flight into fantasy. During the flight a close up view of MT.Everest, MT.Kanchenjunga and other famous peaks become a reality. Six days a week flights between the two countries have made easier travel to the long isolated Dragon Kingdom, Bhutan.


Religion

Drukpa Kagyu School of Tibetan Buddhish is the state religion but the Nyingma School is also well represented in the central and the eastern districts.


Climate

The monsoon starts in the mid June and last until the end of September. Monsoon here is pleasant and the landscape verdant. The climate within the mountains varies greatly according to precipitation and wind conditions. In the Duars plains and up to 1500 meters the climate is sub-tropical with high humidity and heavy rainfall. The climate of the mid-mountain belt varies, such that the low-lying parts of Punakha,Mongar,Tashigang and Lhuntse have a cool winter and hot summers.


Things of interest

Festivals are held in Bhutan throughout the year at different locations. These festivals are celebrations of faith, legends, myths and history of Bhutan in ancient rituals of colorful dance and music. The most popular for tourists are those held in Thimpu,Paro and Bumthang. They mark the busiest time of the year for tourism and hotel rooms are difficult to come by. Festival time is one of the only periods during a year when tourists are permitted inside the courtyard of some Dzongs. The Dzongs come to life with color, music and dancing as valley dwellers and town folks dress in the best clothes and join together to exorcise evil spirit and rejoice in a new harvest.


Trekking Programmes

TThe power and beauty of the mountains are more impressive on foot than a view from vehicle.
