Bhutan all most a beautiful country. Join us for visit.
With such a wide variety of the landscape and geographical features, the places to visit in Bhutan have a certain charm of their own wherever you go in this country. Being landlocked by countries of such varying culture, the effect of which you can see almost everywhere in the various Bhutan tourist places, the eclectic mix of ethnic cities would certainly shock you and then make you feel as if you are in love with this country.
Imagine a country where a land’s worth is measured differently — think Gross National Happiness instead of Gross Domestic Product. Now stop dreaming because you are in the unexplored mountain kingdom of Bhutan. Beauty and wisdom are revealed at each dzong, every gompa, and most incredibly, in the eyes of every smiling Buddhist monk you meet. On treks through remote trails and visits to Paro, Thimphu, and Punakha, nature lovers, photographers, and culture junkies will uncover a purity of culture, traditions, and kindness.
Many travellers to Bhutan feel that the food provided is one of the least memorable aspects of their time in the country, as hotels do tend to play it safe. However Bhutan cuisine does have a few gems and if you eat out here is a short list of dishes to look out for:Ema Datshi – A Bhutanese staple. This mixture of cheese, chilli and butter is served throughout Bhutan.Kewa Datshi – Thinly sliced potatoes are thinly sliced then sautéed with cheese and butter. Occasionally other ingredients will be added but, by and large, this dish is all about the potatoes. Shamu Datshi – Similar to Ema datshi, this dish is a great alternative for those of us who are not fans of spice. Whilst chillies are used in Ema Datshi, Shamu Datshi makes use of mushrooms instead.Shakam paa – Dried beef cooked with chilli.Phaksha paa – Thin slices of pork stir fried with chillies and vegetables.Juma – Effectively the Bhutanese version of a sausage, minced meat, rice and spices are wrapped in small intestine.Momos- These dumplings have made their mark throughout the entire Himalayan region however they are thought to originate in Bhutan.What to See and DoBhutan, a Buddhist kingdom on the Himalayas’ eastern edge, is known for its monasteries, fortresses (or dzongs) and dramatic landscapes that range from subtropical plains to steep mountains and valleys. In the High Himalayas, peaks such as 7,326m Jomolhari are popular trekking destinations. Paro Taktsang monastery (also known as Tiger’s Nest) clings to cliffs above the forested Paro Valley.

It seems Paro and Timphu are prety much the main places to stay at to observe local life and the main sights. I understand that much of Bhutan’s charm lies in the nature, however, I am not too much of a hiker, and typically get bored after 3-4 days at the beach.
Bhutan is a small country with a limited number of citizens and a restricted tourist population. Due to these two broad reasons, there are not a lot of commute options across Bhutan. And hence if you are going to Bhutan as a traveler or as a businessman, you have to keep this in mind as it will have a lot of effect on your travel plans and duration. And to add to this, the entire country has one highway that connects from the Indian border, moving to West Bhutan and all the way into Eastern Bhutan. Since most of the country is mountainous, densely forested and prone to landslides, road travel is much slower. Between Phuntsoling, Thimphu and Paro, there are broader roads, but the roads to the other cities of Bhutan are connected by single lanes.Share this tour
