Why go to Bhutan? | Highlights of the Kingdom of Bhutan

Bhutan is no ordinary place. It is the last great Himalayan kingdom, shrouded in mystery and magic, where a traditional Buddhist culture carefully embraces the developing world. Bhutan is known for its stunning landscapes, legendary ancient temples and beautiful fortresses, museums, spicy yet delicious food, colorful festivals and most of all its authenticity.The charms of this isolated Himalayan Kingdom are strong, and their culture remains intact. Cultural events and festivals are a part of everyday life and not created for tourism.

People from all over the world come to visit the Bhutanese monasteries. Buddhism in Bhutan is not a religion but a way of life. The reason why Bhutan is such a peaceful place is because Buddhism is so deeply ingrained in their society. You will have the opportunity to discover some of the most sacred Buddhist monasteries, temples and marvel at the ancient paintings and carvings in fortress and temples.

The most distinctive characteristic of Bhutanese cuisine is its spiciness. Chilis are an essential part of nearly every dish and are considered so important that most Bhutanese people would not enjoy a meal that was not spicy. Their national dish, Ema Datshi, is a fiery blend of green chilies smothered in cheese and the Bhutanese take pride in it. Rice forms the main body of most Bhutanese meals. It is accompanied by one or two side dishes consisting of meat or vegetables. Pork, beef and chicken are the meats that are eaten most often. With a visit to a local farmhouses, you will get to experience real local cuisine.

The best time to visit Bhutan is during the spring months of March to May when the valleys come alive with flowers in bloom. The Himalayan peaks are at their most visible with the clear skies of October. June to August is considered the low season due to the rains.

Bhutan's currency is the ‘ngultrum’. Its value is fixed to the Indian rupee, which is also accepted as legal tender in the country. Though Bhutan's economy is one of the smallest economies of the world, it has grown rapidly in recent years.

Take home some treasures and gifts from the local markets. You will find souvenirs such as hand-woven textile, Yatras (colorful strips of wool cloth, dyed with natural colours), Buddhist paintings, brass statues, cymbals, Bhutanese violins, Tibetan trumpets and prayer wheels (which are a popular choice amongst the tourists).
