Bhutan as tour destination

Tiger nest monastery Bhutan The regulated tourism makes Bhutan an expensive destination in south Asia. However its uniqueness as ‘Tibet outside of Tibet’, worth a visit. Bhutan is in the southern slopes of the Himalayas, where intact Tibetan essence and Buddhism is preserved indifferent to outside world.

Bhutan, approx. the size of Switzerland, covers an area of 47,000 sq. kms and has a population of less that 700,000 inhabitants. These figures, however do not reflect the incredible geographical and ecological diversity of the country nor its natural wealth. The range of altitudes revel its variety, rising from 300m on the Indian frontier to 7,300m on the Tibet border. The land is reminiscent of a gigantic staircase.
The name Bhutan appears to be derived from the ancient Nepalese term Bhotana, which means the end of the land of Bhots (Tibet). The Bhutanese themselves refer to their country as Druk Yul or the Land of the Thunder Dragon. Druk meaning dragon and extending from the predominant Drukpa school of Tibetan Buddhism. You will discover in the Thunder Dragon Kingdom of Bhutan, true mystical bliss enveloped in its natural splendour. This Himalayan paradise is still wrapped in a time, recollected by many as “those good old days”.

September has pleasant temperature of about 25 degree. Thimphu celebrates ‘Thimphu Tshechu festival’ during the month. However sky may be partially cloudy as the monsoon is becoming reliant.
May : Clouds start to gather around May and the temperature rises making it hot and humid. This is not the best time to travel but it is less crowded and mountains are visible every now and then.
