Bhutan Travel Guide
A small country tucked away in the Himalayas, Bhutan is indeed jewelled with beauty and sacred cultures. It is one of the old Buddhist kingdoms that practices Vajrayana Buddhism. While east of Bhutan has trekking trails, western region has rice fields to admire. Winter time from December to March is perfect for the holidays. Thimphu, Paro and Punakha are popular cities. Taktsang Monastery, Simtokha Dzong, Chele La Pas in Haa Valley, National Memorial Chorten, and Motithang Takin Preserve (wildlife reserve) are famous attractions to visit.
Dochu La Pass for biking and Jumolhari Trek are perfect for adventure seekers. If you are in a shopping mood, head to the Weekend Market for bead jewellery, tapestries and more. Ema Dhatshi and Jasha Maru are local dishes to savour. Asa, a rice liquor also tastes well with local food.
