7 Reasons Why YOU MUST visit BHUTAN
Hello everyone, today I will talk about one of the most beautiful countries in the world that is Bhutan. I visited this nation in 2019 and it was a truly an amazing trip. I believe it’s a must see destination and here are my 7 reasons why you all must visit Bhutan.
1. Monks & Monasteries: Bhutan is known for fluttering flags, majestic monasteries & peace loving monks. Being a Buddhist kingdom you are certain to see a lot of monasteries and monks everywhere you go. I was lucky to visit quite a few monasteries and interacted with a lot of monks. It gave me a clear insight into the monastic lifestyle of monks living in monasteries. The must see monastery in Bhutan is Tiger’s Nest that is standing on cliffside at an elevation of 3120 metres above Paro valley. It is the most famous and visited landmark in Bhutan.
2. Mountains & valleys: If you are a mountain person than you will definitely fall in love with this country. Bhutan is a mountainous kingdom so you are bound to enjoy breathtaking landscapes, snow capped Himalayan peaks and lush green valleys. The dense forests, verdant rice terraces, gushing rivers and towering mountains are among the common sights there. It is a nature lovers and trekkers paradise. Paro, Thimphu, Haa, Phobjika & Bhumthang are among the famous valleys of Bhutan.
3. Dzongs: Dzong means fortress. Bhutan has 20 districts and each district has at least one Dzong. Punakha Dzong is a must see Dzong that was built during 17th century at the junction of two rivers Mo Chu & Po Chu. It is one of the oldest, largest and perhaps the most majestic Dzongs in Bhutan. Inside the Dzong you will see administrative section, Stupa, courtyards, a Bodhi tree, central tower and monastery. The other must see Dzongs in Bhutan are Tashichho Dzong & Trongsa Dzong.
4. Unique Art & Architecture: On a trip to Bhutan you are going to appreciate its incredible art & architecture. You will find creative paintings of dragons, Phallus, animals and nature decorated on the exterior walls of houses and buildings. The traditional Bhutanese architecture comprises of elaborate & intricate wood carvings that you will find adorned on windows, balconies and walls.
5. Happy People & wide Smiles: Bhutan is called ‘The Land of Happiness” and yes it is truly one of the happiest countries in the world where Gross National Happiness is more important than Gross National Product. In this country where ever go you will find lovely people with their smiling faces. People of Bhutan are among the most peaceful, hospitable and friendly in the world. I really love the tagline of Bhutan Tourism that says “Happiness is a Place”
6. Clean & Green Environment: Yes all the towns & places in Bhutan are very clean, green and cool. On your arrival at Paro Airport you will be welcomed by the freshest and cleanest air. The country gives utmost importance to cleanliness, hygiene and sanitation. On my 09 Days trip to Bhutan where I visited Paro, Thimphu, Punakha & Gangtey I did not find garbage littering on the streets and that was quite impressive. Bhutan has 71% forest cover and a minimum of 60% percent of total land shall be maintained under forest cover for all time. This is to protect their wildlife, environment and natural resources. Their focus on environmental protection is so committed that Bhutan is the world’s only carbon negative country.
7. Momos: Yes if you love Momos then Bhutan must be definitely in your bucket list. Momos are famous and native to this part of the region and on a trip to Bhutan do miss having them in large numbers. I had the most delicious and yummiest Momos on my trip and I miss them a lot.
