What do you think of a country that has to offer to you some trail-blazing sceneries and sites, all rocky, hilly and green? Not bad, right? Now, what if the country is actually giving you some major tourist goals with high-peaked locations and lesser population? Amazing, right?!
Well, here’s Bhutan for you in that case. Bhutan is a Buddhist country with a Himalayan location, which is rather intriguing as a tourist destination right from its culture and over all outlook painted elaborately and much vibrantly in its very flag! With heart-whelming locations and landscapes, the country is gifted with cliffs, valleys, forests and everything that nature could have possibly shoved it with!

Seemingly, the best time to visit Bhutan is during the spring months of March to May when the country blooms with vibrant colours. However, for the trekking freak in you, October seems to be the most welcoming month of all. The Himalayas seem to comply with the weather more often then. However, it might be a little on the colder side.
From the National capital of India, you can take a flight to Paro. Or you either fly to Bagdora, in West Bengal, and take a cab to the Border town of Phuentsholing. You can also take a train until New Jalpaiguri in West Bengal, and take a cab to Phuentsholing. Or, you can fly to Kolkata or Guwahati, and catch a connecting flight to Bhutan then. Being close to India, Bhutan could be reached by a number of ways thus.
Let’s get into some betting from now on. We bet that after what we have to say now, you would rather ease into telling us, what to do in this super-duper amazing country. Here we go!
And here we begin with the Capital city itself. Well, well, the city just stuns you with its extravaganza beginning with higher ranges of Himalaya, a dream to be in the lap of two rivers, the Raidak or Chuu River and a stupendous blend of culture meted with modernity! The city is a perfect haven for honeymooners, trekkers and friends or family on a fun and pollution-free vacation. Also, you must have heard of the phrase, “in Nature’s lap”. Kudos, because you are literally gonna experience every bit of that here. Your go-to places should be the Buddha Dordenma, Memorial Chorten, Dechencholing Palace, Clock Tower Square, Motithang Takin Preserve. Other tourism places include Dzong such as Tashichho and Simtokha; Monasteries such as Dechen Phodrang, Tango and Cheri. All in all, a perfect place to begin with when it comes to better spaces, cuisines and cultural flaunting.
The city is a picturesque primal location with mountains encapsulated with snow, mountain greens, lush-green valleys and what not! It’s an only city with an international airport and therefore the most visited tourists’ paradise! The dzongs are majorly attractive and they are-Paro and Zuri; monasteries and palaces like Paro Taktsang (Tiger’s Nest Monastery), Pelri Goemba, Ugyen Pelri Palace. Next we have some really artistic temples, monuments and museums such as Bondey Lhakhang, Khangkhu Lhakhang, Tago Lhakhang, Druk Choeding and National Museum. In short, the city is truly an artistes’ palette with flamboyantly coloured scenes and is best explored on foot. Also, there’s absolutely no limit to the amount of impact the locals’ lives, stories and cultures have on a tourist like you!
3 cheers to the adventure aficionado in you. Hip-hip-hurray (*3)!
Well, Punakha says so. The city booms with adventure activities for the forever-psyched specie in you! Starting from water-sport activities like river rafting in two famous rivers, Mo and pho, the city has a lot much to explore. The 17th-century fortress Punakha Dzong is another striking site. Besides, this Himalayan town hosts masked dances and traditional music during Punakha Tshechu– a religious festival of Bhutan. Other must-visit attractions include Chimi Lhakhang and Namgyal Chorten. These are high points and therefore render a more understandable views of the mountains and rivers. Punakha Dzong and Limbhukha are another amazing tourist spots to go for in this city!
Welcome to the central city with all its awe-inspiring scenes to look forth and meditate to! Its central location connects the roads to Bumthang, Gelephu and Punakha. What’s worthy of noticing here is the Trongsa Dzong! It’s known to be one of the best Buddhist monasteries, further topped with red roofs and white wash walls set down above a valley. The town is just so beautiful. It’s dreamy like the ones we have in Ruskin Bond novels! Take a long stroll along the streets of this tiny-yet-beautifully constructed town and notice how the locals live a peaceful life here, minus your hustling-bustling-fast-pacing towns and cities.
The town is primely located at the foothills of Choekhor valley. The Jakar region is also popularly called Chamkhar, owing to its location. The region is rather popular for its trading centre and the famous attraction here being the Jakar Dzong. The Chamkhar Valley of Bumthang resides above this town and is indeed one heck of a place. Other popular attractions are Wangdicholing Palace (1857), Bumthang Brewery, Lhodrak Kharchu Goemba founded in the year 1970s by Namkhai Nyingpo Rinpoche; Cheese Factory and the 14th-century Jakar Lhakhang. The domestic airport in Jakar is Bathpalathang Airport located on the east bank of the Chamkhar Chhu. TBH, Jakar would take a couple of days to be explored thoroughly!
