Nepal and Bhutan occupy the most remote landmass in the foothills of the Himalayas. The invincible Himalayan landscape however safeguarded diverse cultures and practices unstained until now. The vertically raising slope of Nepal - Bhutan nourished diverse flora, fauna and ethnicity. Nepal was safe hideout for immigrants and political renegades from both India and Tibet from the ancient time. This flourished several distinct cultures in the manifold Himalayan valleys. Towards the eastern Himalaya, Bhutan persistently remained aloof from outside world until these days representing it as a Tibet outside of Tibet.
Thimphu Tshechu is one of the biggest festivals in Bhutan held in the capital city. Before the actual tshechu that is being witnessed by thousands of people from the capital city and the nearby Dzongkhags conducts days and nights of prayers and rituals to invoke the gods.

Trip Review
Thank you, too, for the flexibility you allowed in me to choose what "I" wanted to do and see ... and not forcing me into a cookie cutter tour. I definitely told you that I had five requests: the Potala Palace, Tiger's Nest, Bhutan, Base Camp, and that I wanted to see the country; the way the real people live.
