Learn more about Bhutan Tourism
Bhutan is a stunning country that is full of culture, scenery and tradition. Bhutan is the leading green destination in all of the world and was graced with the “Earth Award” in 2018. The award recognizes countries that have focused their efforts on providing sustainable tourism. An interesting fact is that the Bhutan government has made it mandatory that the country have 60% forest coverage at all times. The dedication of Bhutan to help protect the environment is an example for us all to follow.
People travel to Bhutan from all over the world to indulge in the many interesting aspects that make up this country. It is filled with mountain peaks that are dusted with snow and low hidden valleys where rich vegetation blankets the ground. Bhutan is known for its incredible and vast landscapes and one of the most visited areas is the Tiger’s Nest. This breathtaking monastery is perched on top of cliffs, high in the mountains and sits 900 meters above Paro Valley. This hike is not for the faint of heart but the magnificent views are well worth the trek. This monastery is considered one of the most sacred religious sites in all of Bhutan. It is believed that Guru Padmasambhava came to the cave, that is now considered the heart of this 325 year old monastery, to meditate for years. In modern days, the monastery houses monks who live here all of their lives. Monks join monasteries in Bhutan at the young age of six to nine years old and will begin to learn the ancient language of chokey. The monks will then be given the choice of two different life paths; one being to learn and study theology and Buddist theory or they can make the decision to follow a path that most monks take, which would be to be proficient in rituals and personal practises of faith. Monks may also decide to take a vow of silence and they spend their days studying and meditating, praying and performing rituals.
Another aspect that lures travelers to Bhutan is their unique and traditional culture. Bhutan has a very religiously centered culture which is their Tibetan form of Mahayana Buddhism. The country holds many religious festivals across villages that showcase vibrantly coloured, beautiful outfits and are centered around individuals dancing that can last up to several hours. Offerings are brought by everyone that attends and are gifted to the lama or monastery of the festival. The dances that are performed date back to the 17th century and have been virtually unchanged due to Bhutan’s efforts to protect their culture and traditions and not have them influenced by the outside world. Television and internet weren’t allowed to be viewed until 1999 and it was not that long ago that travelers were not allowed to explore Bhutan. The first international tourists that were allowed in Bhutan were in the 1970s and still to this day you must have a guide with you at all times and a driver when wandering around this beautiful country unless you hold a Indian, Bangladesh or Maldives Passport.
Another heavily traveled area of Bhutan is the incredible area of Trongsa. This stunning area is located in the center of Bhutan and is surrounded by captivating views of the Black Mountains and the valleys that lay below. The Black Mountains are a subrange of the Himilayan Mountains and hold the rare black mountain language that is still spoken in very small areas of the mountains. The area of Trongsa is also very appealing to travelers because of the Royal Heritage Museum which on the outside itself, a treat for the eyes. The museum is nestled away in the mountains and holds exhibits filled with the history of Bhutan. Another amazing place located in Trongsa is the Trongsa Dzong. It is the largest fortress in Bhutan and is also a beautiful piece of artwork. The fortress was built in 1543 and overlooks the rushing waters of the Mandge River. This building is used by the government to run Bhutan and is perfect for them to oversee the people as it lies in the middle of the country which the government believes is ideal when trying to manage the country.
