Bhutan Tourism-A Surprising Delight   by Adolf Jamie

Bhutan is a tiny kingdom nestled and protected by Himalaya. Officially known as Kingdome of Bhutan, it is still unexplored. That may be the one and exclusive reason of its unspoiled beauty and serenity. Bhutan tourism might not be highlighting the fact of being landlocked by China and India, but to the travelers that doesn’t make any differece apart from being a piece of general knowledge. Home to numerous species of plants and birds, you fill find Golden Langur, Bengal tiger, Great One-Horned Rhinoceros, Clouded Leopard, Hispid Hare, Indian leopard, etc. If wildlife is your thing, Bhutan makes an excellent choice for you. Tour in India could wait for some more time.

Thimpu is the capital city of Bhutan marked by the presence of majestic throne rooms meant for the use of the royalty. The city is mostly a center of attraction due to museums, fortresses, temples and monasteries. Thimpu Valley is home to many Buddhist monks during summers. Visit to Phuentsholing will provide you with a different experience for its clean and serene environment. Those who are looking for peace and solitude while having fun in Bhutan tourism can become a part of this small town for some time. Bumthang Valley is also attracts tourists for the Kurjey Temple and many monasteries. The main town of Bumthang is Jakar. Spiritualism is not only worshipped in tour in India but countries like Bhutan can also rejuvenate your spirit with places like these.

List of popular tourist spots of Bhutan tourism goes long with Taktshang Monastery, Kichu Lhakang, National Museum of Bhutan and Paro Dzong in Paro. Crafts are an important part of Bhutan and hence its colorful masks, woodcarvings, stamps, hand-woven bamboo items, silver, bronzes and silk can heavy your bags on return. You can also indulge in buying Buddhist paintings, handmade paper products and religious thangkas. They would make excellent souvenirs for your loved ones and handsomely decorate your home. Tour in India would also provide you with such ample opportunities but if you are in Bhutan, do have its share.

You are sure to get indulge in Bhutanese cuisine with Bhutan Mist, a local liquor and become an instant fan of it. You will get Yak meat, Ema Datsi (a special dish made of cheese and chili), ‘Puta’ (wheat noodles), the Momos (popular in many Indian regions also) and Neshing Jurma (tea made of parasitic plant). Bhutan tourism welcomes you heartily even if you are on tour in India!
