Bhutan officially the Kingdom of Bhutan, is a sovereign state in South Asia. Bhutan is also well known for mountain adventure trekking and hiking. Jhomolhari Base Camp Trek, Snowman Trek, Masagang trek are some of the popular treks in Bhutan. The most important centers for tourism are in Bhutan’s capital Thimphu, and in the western city of Paro, near India. Taktshang, a cliff side monastery (Called the “Tiger’s Nest” in English) watching the Paro Valley, is one of the country’s attractions. This temple is really sacred to Buddhists. Housed inside the temple is a cave in which the Buddhist Deity who brought Buddhism to Bhutan fasted for 90 days as he battled the demons that inhabited this valley, in order to spread Buddhism. The temple has been standing for well over a thousand years, yet has suffered two fires in which the damage has been repaired. Visas to Bhutan are obtained through its embassy or consulate in one’s home country. [Ref – Wikipedia]

slide51

The Kingdom of mountains and monasteries is a poetry in motion, an experience of a lifetime, a canvas of snow-capped mountains, and colourful fluttering prayer flags, a trekker’s paradise and a land of happy and hospitable people.

Bhutan will offer you many breathtaking experiences. You will be smitten by the pristine air and the purity of the land, overwhelmed by the magnificence of the Himalayas and the serenity of the valleys. But, there are some experiences in Bhutan that will transform your life and make you have the most unforgettable trip of your life. Want to know what are these?

Make yourself a nice mojito, curl up in your beloved bean bag and read on:

Become a Textile Connoisseur

Visit the Norzin Lam Textile Museum in the capital city of Bhutan, Thimpu. The National Textile Haven Museum will introduce you to textiles from as old as the 1960s to kiras and ghos worn by Bhutanese men and women today.

Weaving is the national art of Bhutan and there is little chance that you won’t fall in love with the elegant local costumes. Find out all about the rich heritage of weaving in Bhutan, myriad textiles, and different weaving techniques.

Some of the best weavers weave inside the museum and you can actually purchase their masterpieces from the store located inside the museum.

The museum is open across the year from Monday to Saturday from 9 am to 4 pm. Your Bhutan tour is not complete without a visit to the capital and when in Thimpu, you must go to witness the beautiful and enchanting art of weaving in the Norzin Lam Textile Museum. Not only will the rose-cheeked, always smiling Bhutanese weavers tell you all that you need to know about textiles, but also you can watch a short movie here about the art of weaving.

What a charming way to turn a textile connoisseur!

Return Spiritually Enriched

Few return from Bhutan untouched by the spirituality and divinity of the country. Spirituality is embedded and seeped in the rivers, peaks, forests, homes, and even in the air of Bhutan.

There are innumerable monasteries and citadel-styled dzongs spread across the terrain of Bhutan. The Tiger’s Nest monastery, ‘Takshang Lakhang is considered one of the most sacred. Nestled amidst blooming rhododendrons, this delightful monastery is perched on the edge of a cliff and has emerged as of the most photographed destinations in the world. Precariously perched, it is a sight to behold, and evokes spirituality even in the non-believers.

The famed 108 Stupas arranged around the viewpoint of the Dochula Stupa, at 3000 m is a reverberation of peace, principles and compassion.

The Himalayas in the distance prove to be spiritual and calming in their own way. Monasteries, Stupas, and dzongs are scattered throughout the landscape of Bhutan.

Another spiritual heartland of the Himalayan Kingdom

Bhutan is one of the last few remaining strongholds of Vajrayana Buddhism, and most monasteries, monastic schools, and temples have meditation centers of their own.

If peace of mind and respite from the cares and stresses of daily life is what you seek, meditate in a meditation center like the monks do. Inquire to know if meditation can be included in your Bhutan package.

Rid Yourself of Pains

Bhutan is fast emerging as a wellness destination. Bhutan is a nation, that believes in preserving its cultural heritage, and going back to the roots for treating all ailments.

The traditional medicine of Bhutan is known as Sowa Rigpa and can be traced back to the 17th century. Indigenous medicine units exist in all 20 districts of Bhutan and provide tourists with traditional remedies for all ailments especially joint pains.

The other gem in Bhutan’s crown are its hot springs or Tshachus. The medicinal properties of these are known to cure a multitude of diseases from arthritis to even sinuses. If you want to tread the path of recovery or are looking to find holistic wellness approach to your ailments, Bhutan might just be your destination.

Try Your Hand at Archery

You would barely expect the warm and affable Bhutanese people to indulge in a sport like archery. But to my surprise, I found out that this is their national sport and one that they take very seriously.

Attend an archery tournament if you are visiting Thimpu over a weekend. Archery is very popular among the locals and the tourists. You must try your hand at it.

Watching archery competitions or games is just as delightful. Witnessing rivals engage in verbal combat and repartee and then break into a rhythmic song and dance routine everytime a player hits or misses a mark is quite a spectacle. And trust me, before you know, you will find yourself engrossed in the competitive festivity of the sport too, cheering, playing, and sighing and feeling more Bhutanese than the Bhutanese themselves.

Find the Photographer in You

If you are into photography, Bhutan should be your subject. Bhutan is beautiful beyond words. Tucked away in the Himalayas, it is a region of picturesque lush valleys wreathed in clouds, dramatic pine forests, meandering clear rivers, and mountains that play hide and seek with your lens-sometimes majestic, sometimes coy and misty.

And it is not just nature’s endowments that cast a spell on you and inspire you to freeze and capture moments. Traditional architecture in Bhutan’s monasteries and dzongs is compelling. You have to explore the hand-drawn Buddhist murals painted on walls of homes and monasteries, the incredibly intricate carvings of the courtyards, the elaborate and flamboyant colours of Buddhist festivities, and the mesmerizing butter lamps in a row.

Become a Food Taster

Sure you will get your soups and sandwiches when you come to Bhutan. But it’s highly recommended that you sample the very interesting local cuisine when you come here. The most famous local dish you just have to have is the Ema Datshi, a signature cheese and chilli concoction with a Bhutanese version of salsa, a tangy tomato sauce with salt, red chilli, green chilli and lots of coriander. No meal is complete without the traditional brown rice that Bhutanese people swear by. It is supposed to be the healthier and more nutritious variant of the white rice.

Take Home the most Wonderful Souvenirs

Another thing that I found absolutely charming about Bhutan, was the unique and varied souvenirs I could take home. Bhutanese textiles make an opulent gift. Obviously, you must buy some and keep for yourself too to stand out in a crowd with the rich woven purse or beautifully designed, handcrafted shawls.

Here’s a surprise, Bhutan is home to the coolest stamps in the world. Square, round, triangular, rectangular and even 3d stamps with different people, objects and events are available here. If you have a philatelist friend, you know what to gift them. The Philately counter at the National Post Office at Chang Lam houses a unique and diverse collection of stamps. Make the experience even more enjoyable and personal by buying a stamp with your picture on it! Gift it to someone very dear or make it a part of your own collection.

The Centenary Farmer’s Weekend market and the handicraft market across the cantilevered foot bridge is a colourful place to pick up some gorgeous souvenirs like colourful masks, thangkas, Buddha Figurines, musical instruments and the famed prayer wheels.

Finally,

Make the most of your Bhutan holiday. Do all the things mentioned above. They will be totally worth it, and don’t forget to trek through the rugged terrains. Visit Bhutan and feel the adrenaline rush of a lifetime.

5 Images of the Himalayan Kingdom That Will Stay with You Forever

slide52

Trips and vacations make beautiful memories. You know how few things from the trips stays etched in your mind forever- like the clock tower of Shimla covered in snow, or New Year’s night at Anjuna beach in Goa. We have heard so much about these popular destinations and know exactly when we need to shut off the world around us and just immerse in those places and moments that will stay etched in our minds forever.

Bhutan is unexplored terrain. So for all of you who are visiting the beautiful land of Bhutan for the first time, here are 5 times when Bhutan’s unparalleled beauty and divinity will take your breath away, and leave you with a treasure house of memories.

When You Land at the Paro Airport

The fact that Bhutan has been so secluded from the rest of the world adds to its charm. The Paro airport is the only international airport in the country. But that is not the only reason that makes this airport unique. The view that you see while landing in this Himalayan airport is probably one of the most magnificient images you will witness in your life. So brace yourselves for this breathtaking sight.

Surrounded by mountains on all four sides of upto18,000 ft. tall and at 1.5 miles above sea level, it’s the only airport that is actually a valley. As you fly downwards, you will see the verdant mountains and forests of the Himalayan region, the crystal clear waters of the Paro river, the pious prayer flags fluttering in the mountain and the grand and imposing monasteries. This is a sight that will mesmerize and melt you at the same time.

Good thing is, your Bhutan holiday begins at Paro, so the welcome itself will be one of the best you have ever received and will set the pace for the rest of your trip.

Visit to One of the Famous Hot Springs

Hot springs or Tshachus are found across Bhutan. However, the five most well-known are The Gata Tshachu, The Chubu Tshachu, The Dur Tshachu, The Duenmang Tshachu, and, The Gelephu Tshachu. Bhutanese believe that Tshachus have healing properties and ever since Bhutan has opened its doors to the world, people from across the world come to take a dip in these hot springs. It is supposed to heal one of all diseases, especially joint pains, arthiritis, and sinus.

But what’s overwhelming is the aura and beauty of these springs You will reach one of these spiritual stations after an equally satisfying trek across sparkling mountain streams, bamboo groves, and quaint Bhutanese villages.

Words simply cannot justify the calmness and tranquillity you reach when you reach one of these spiritual stations. When you visit one of these springs in your Bhutan package, you will know exactly what I mean.

When You Trek to the Tiger’s Nest

Taktsang Monastery or popularly known as Tiger’s Nest is considered the holiest monastery of Bhutan. Paro Taktsang is like a magical dew drop on the mighty Himalayas, nurtured and loved by the mountains. Quite literally hanging on a cliff 10,240 feet over the Paro valley it is a sight to behold, revered and silently prayed to.

This unbelievably gorgeous monastery does not reveal itself easily and remains wrapped in mist and clouds. On the way to Tiger’s Nest rhododendrons and a gentle breeze will be your constant companion. But once you reach the top, it’s sheer magic. Capture the untouched, unspeakable beauty of this mountain-edge monastery, watch nature celebrate in all its colours, and hear the mountains serenade the clouds, the echoes of a past, precious culture. Take in all the beauty.

I guarantee each one of you that Tiger’s Nest will remain one of the most memorable, beautiful and cherished travel moments of your life.

See the Monks in red

You may wonder what is so special about this. But it is actually a very rare and treasured sight in Bhutan to see a line of monks pass dressed in vibrant red robes. You will usually catch them by themselves, or in groups of twos or threes.

To see these pious souls in a red in their flaming garments and serene appearances is a sight few get to witness in the last remaining human kingdom. Consider yourself lucky if you happen to witness this rare sight in your Bhutan holiday.

Praying in front of the Big Buddha and the Butter Lamps

Spirituality is a way of life in the realm. This is hardly surprising considering Bhutan does take its happiness quotient and religion very seriously. But the experience of going to a monastery and kneeling before the towering Buddha, and watch the monks light their butter lamps goes way beyond religion.

The lamps in a row, the luminous face of the Buddha, the quiet, and the radiance emanating from the monks and every nook and corner of the monastery will transform you in ways we will never understand, but leave a lasting impression on your minds and soul.

To Conclude,

Bhutan is like a dream you have never dreamt, a story still in the making. It breaks all stereotypes of a tourist spot, and yet remains a destination that remains the right blend of mysticism and spirituality, luxury and affordability, serenity and music of the valleys. One can’t define it, one can’t categorize, only bask in its beauty and admire it for all that it is. Are you ready to visit this magical land of mountains and monasteries?
