  • Bhutan:Jambay Lhakhang Drup:Bumthang's...

    Hi, I just visited this festival this year, 30 Oct 2012. I would say this festival is rather special and not the usual masked dances festivals you will attend in any part of the world.My first trip to Bhutan was in March 2011 for the Paro festival. I fell in love with this country because of its cultural, friendly people and beautiful sceneries....

  • Is Bhutan Safe for Visitors?

    Bhutan is one of the safest place on earth. Perfectly safe, even if you are a single female. There is a lot of ignorance among people about Bhutan, probably because not much is publicized in the press for Bhutan. The only issue is that you have to visit this place in groups. You cannot visit this place alone, unless you are an Indian or Nepalese.

  • Getting to BHUTAN

    My family and I went to Bhutan in June this year and let me tell you, the trip was amazing. we initially had problems getting information on Bhutan and especially finding a local travel agent who would'nt clean us dry. After spending weeks on the internet and through some personal friends in Asia, i managed to get in touch with Mr Rinchhen of A...

  • Peaceful

    Bhutan is hidden in the Himalayas. Here is one of the most beautiful valleys called Phubjikha valley which carves itself through the mountain slopes. It makes me think of the symphonic poem "The Moldau" by Smetana.The mountain slopes are to my surprise very gentle, probably because it's cushioned by the tall cypress. The flat land are always...

  • Plain and simple

    People make offerings on the altars. Most of the time, they offer only water, not oil. It's so plain and simple and easily afford by everybody. It means pure faith.

  • Bhutan Vs. Switzerland

    Bhutan reminds a lot of westerners of Switzerland, no matter by its shape, the area, rolling mountains, green forests, pasture, chalets in the mountains...There should at least be one more thing in common, both countries are very expensive as travel destinations. They are both beautiful too, very well reserved. I have to say it's very smart to...

    English is surprisingly widely used in Bhutan. All the signs in the cities are in both Drongka and English. And many people can speak good English as English is taught in primary schools.

  • Narviking's General Tip

    The fondest memory of Bhutan are Sonam and his family and the time we spent with them, both doing sightseeing and in their home. They were so friendly and nice people and we dont know how to thank them for all they did for us. Without their help we would never have been able to visit Bhutan. They certainly did so that we left Bhutan with a very...

  • You should take the times...

    You should take the times during the big tsechus. The hole aerea is then at the Dzongs and 1000 things will happen around you. Take the time and think about, that all this dances and music is not a tourist howabow - it is a deep religious ceremony ( ok the Bhutanese more use it as a yearly 'see-and-be-seen'. But you will feel the deep spiritual...

  • bring a camerapic from...

    bring a camerapic from cyberia Bhutan is a nice destination, all the colors are brilliant there, in my opinion, because its closer to the sun. It was such a weird experience there, because they have this royal family and this upper class thing, which is probably something like the Royal Courts of Europe c. 1600. At the top are all these catty,...
