Travel to Bhutan for the Ultimate Holidays Experience

By Mike Atherton Subscribe to RSS | November 29th 2011 | Views:

South Asia is subcontinent in Geographical terms but in terms of tourism, it is a Universe in itself. The fact can be proven by touring the small and little known Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan.

Bhutan is beautiful country on the east of Nepal and it is a mysterious territory for the tourist. It puts the travelers into awe by its unexplored mountain paths, mysterious forests, less known beautiful valleys and Buddhist Monasteries. For those who love natural beauty which is untouched by the modern tourism industry, a Bhutan Tour is a must. Bhutan has snow capped mountains, historical relics, amazing valleys and monuments to offer to the visitors. A great advantage is that a Bhutan Holiday is never expensive. Besides the capital city Thimpu, Paro, Punakha, Bumthang, Trongsa, Gasa are places worth exploring.

Here is a list of the most famous tourist destinations in Bhutan and it is important to add that this list is endless because this country is known for its unknown and not the known.

• Centenary Farmers Market: It is located in the Capital and is one of the biggest structures of the country. It is a vegetable and fruit market which gives a glimpse to the vast faunal diversity that this small Himalayan country offers.

• Tashichhoe Dzong: The Tashichhoe Dzong is the most prominent tourist place in Thimphu. It literally translates to “Fortress of the Glorious Religion”. This white washed building houses the offices and the throne of the King of Bhutan. It also houses the offices of ministers of Home affairs and Finance.

• Royal Academy of Performing Arts (RAPA): This institution was built for the purpose of conserving and developing the rich cultural heritage of Bhutan in performing arts. It provides training in Bhutanese traditional dances which include the famous mask dances.

• National Textile Museum: Bhutan has a rich culture of weaving and this Museum located in Thimpu will give a glimpse of it.

• National Museum: It is located in Paro and gives an insight into the rich culture and history of the country.

• National Memorial Chorten (Stupa): The travel to Bhutan would be incomplete without visiting this architectural landmark. It is also known as Thimpu Chorten and is the most visible religious landmark in Bhutan.

Besides these well known places, there is a list of other famous places of visit that include:

• National Library

• National Institute of Traditional Medicine

• Simtokha Dzong

• Dechen Phodrang Monastery

• Dechencholing Palace

• Tango Monastery

• Cheri Monastery

• Buddha Dordenma

• Clock Tower Square

• Punakha

• Jigme Dorji National Park

• Kurje Lhakhang

• Chimi Lhakhang

• Kyichu Lhakhang

• Takstang Lhakhang

The tour will be incomplete without river rafting, trekking and hiking.
