Bhutan Off The Beaten Path

  • Visiting a hospital emergency department

    Well, this is certainly not something anyone wants to do, but my wife had the "opportunity" to visit the emergency room twice, in two different cities.She picked up some kind of traveler's bug and the antibiotics that we brought along from home did not seem to touch it, so she had to visit the emergency department of a local hospital twice. The...

  • Visit a Local Bar

    Although the whole country is an "off the beaten path", we did find some others that were not shown by tourist guides. There aren't a lot of "bars" or "pubs" in Bhutan, however, in Bhumtang, we saw a lot of houses marked with "Bars". One day we had pretty much free time before dinner, we decided to get into one of the bars. To our surprise the...

  • Monastery near Thimpu

  • Indigenous Hospital Thimphu

    If you are interested in traditional medicine ask your guide to take you to the indigenous hospital.

Do not expect a spa infrastructure - what you will find at the most are square wooden basins 3 by 3 meter. There is no medical support. It reminded me of the prints of european...

  • Chimi Lhakhang - Temple of Fertility

    Near Metshina on the way to Punakha is Chimi Lhakhang, a temple where couples go for help with fertility. The hike will take you through fields and up the side of a hill. Once inside you can receive a blessing for a small offering. Great view from the top!

  • When you visit Bhutan you...

    When you visit Bhutan you should not only visit the towns but also the countryside. It is wonderful with beautiful nature and several places you will be shocked to see were there are buildings... Some places people need ropes to get to their houses and food was lifted up by ropes too. THE PHOTO: MUM AND SONAM IN COUNTRYSIDE NEAR THIMPHU.
