Bhutan - The Unexplored Himalayan Country



A small peaceful & landlocked country bordered by Tibet to the north and India to the south is non-other than the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan. With an area of  46000 sq. km - makes this tiny nation almost the same size as Switzerland. Though separated by thousands of miles, these two countries share similar topography and features. Isolation from the outside world for an extended period, the natural and cultural heritage of Bhutan is still intact. The country is also sometimes regarded as the “ The Land of Thunder Dragon” in a poetic sense. Of course, a legend has been associated with it.

According to the previous census report, the entire population of the country was around 700,000 and the reigning monarch of the country is Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck. In spite of its small territory, this country has well managed profitable growth and low inflation over the past years with sustained economic administration, a righteous governing body, and safeguarding of the natural resources.

Bhutan has very diverse terrain from subtropical forest to some of the highest virgin mountains on earth. Exploring Bhutan can be an excellent opportunity for any adventurous travelers to have an insight into the livelihood, cultures, traditions, ecology and religious life of the population. Almost every trek and tours pass through Dzong, monasteries, and other areas of cultural and natural importance. These splendid monuments give you an idea of how rich the Bhutanese are in terms of arts and architecture.

Grand celebrations of the festivals can be observed in Bhutan, namely - Parotsechu, Tangbimani festival, Thimpu festivals, etc. The legends associated with these festivals are unique whereas traditions follow from 100’s of centuries passed down oral or written. Traditional clothes from head to toe, humbleness, politeness and welcoming nature stay one of the charismatics of the Bhutanese people. Most of the anticipated features of Bhutan are ancient temple dzongs (fortress), heritage museums & monasteries. One of the landmarks of Bhutan is the - Taktsang monastery or Tiger Nest monastery, located at the high cliff and has some legend associated with it too. 

With massive mountain ranges, fertile terrain and thickly dense forest, unique cultural sites comprising ancient arts and architecture, rich traditions – we Himalayan Trekkers encourage all travel enthusiasts to make a visit to this mystical nation. Touring in Bhutan can be relished all year round and that’s the beauty of this nation.
