Bhutan is a country bordering China to the north; in all other directions it has borders with India. The capital of Bhutan is Tibu, while Funchholing is the financial center. Geopolitically, Bhutan is located in South Asia and is the second smallest state in the region, with more population than the Maldives. Historically, Bhutan’s independence has lasted for centuries, while the country has never been colonized in its history. Bhutan has become known for its rich life and unique wild landscapes. Without a doubt, it is a country that deserves to be visited, especially because it is not as “touristy” as the other countries in the region. In this article, we will travel together and give you various ideas of what you can see and do during your visit.
How to organize your trip
To get to Bhutan, all you need is a plane to Delhi airport or Kolkata in India or Bangkok in Thailand. From there you can continue with a Royal Bhutan Airlines flight to Paro Airport. One thing you need to know about organizing your trip to Bhutan is that you cannot access Bhutan without being accompanied by a tour operator. This is quite important when organizing your trip because without a tour operator you will have a serious problem entering the country, even as a tourist. Moreover, as extreme as it may seem, the government requires each tourist to pay around 180 USD per day for each day of stay in the country. This price includes food, accommodation and travel within Bhutan, as well as a tour guide.
To do and see
When you visit Bhutan, there are certain sights and attractions that are worth visiting. In particular, it is worth visiting Tigers Nest. It is a locality which appeared for the first time by Guru Rinpoche; he is believed to be the Lotus-born Buddha and the one who founded Tibetan Buddhism. This monument dominates between the wild peaks of Paro and the 6 mile trek. Going among dense cedars and elevations is demanding, but worth it. Punakha Dzong, the most impressive of the local administrative centers, or Dzong as they are called, is also worth visiting. These are notably castle-monasteries. Punakha Dzong stands between two rivers like a sleeping elephant. The central courtyards, the prayer halls, the painted wooden structures and the craftsmanship of the monks are unique. Equally impressive is the Paro Dzong, one of the most famous and outstanding examples of local architecture. Finally, it is worth visiting the Dochula Pass. There you must climb 2 miles to a spectacular location with magnificent views of the Himalayas and tie your prayer flags in the air, hoping that one day your prayers will be answered, a romantic mission that will challenge your stamina. challenge.
Gastronomic choices in Bhutan
The gastronomy of Bhutan is mainly based on Indian cuisine, although it has many influences from China. The main ingredient in their food is chilli, so before ordering it would be good to specify how spicy you want your food to be. Rice, lentils and wholemeal flour are the staples of Bhutanese cuisine, as are beans and peas or chickpeas. There, they cook with various vegetable oils: peanut oil, sesame oil and sunflower oil. On the meat side, the “kings” of their cuisine are chicken and mutton. However, fish is not a species consumed in large quantities with the exception, of course, of coastal areas where fish is a main source of protein.
This is what it’s like to live a rich life in the wildest landscapes. A trip to Bhutan will excite you mainly because it is a peaceful place where the philosophy of Buddhism has affected the lives of the locals. So if the idea of a trip to Bhutan tempts you, all you have to do is book a ticket and fly there.
