Nestled in the eastern end of Himalayas, humbly flaunting its Dzongs and landscape, Bhutan is a prime destination in every traveler’s wishlist. Visiting Bhutan is like touching something rare; and it is so because of the isolation in which its beauty lies. Here are 6 experiences we had in Bhutan:
When in Bhutan, be an archer:
3. Local sightseeing:
For lazing around and taking a glimpse of the touristy – side of Bhutan, Thimpu, has a lot to offer. Changangkha Lakhang (the oldest temple in Bhutan) lies in central Thimpu, like a holy symphony, bustling with pilgrim activities. Although we suggest you to shop from the (lesser-visited but cheaper) Paro bazaar, Thimpu bazaar sells Buddhist paintings, traditional Bhutanese clothes – kira and gho, souvenirs, yak horns, solid perfumes, stone paintings etc.
4. The drive through Dochula Pass:
5. Tiger’s nest monastery:
6. River rafting:
This hidden land of steep roads and deep valleys can be experienced best when visited at leisure. The rivers, the mountains, the culture and the people, do call in for a deeper immersion. Why not add some happiness to your Personal Happiness Index too by visiting Bhutan?
