 Destination

PARO:
Paro is exceptionally scenic and serene! Besides being a place to be for all who want to be inducted into monkhood, it is a place of legends as well.
Places to See:

  • Taksang Monastery: it is right at the edge of a cliff, 1200 meters high
  • Kichu Lang, about which legend says that it was built overnight
  • Drukgyel Dzong, that loudly speaks of the medieval Tibet-Bhutan wars

THIMPU:
From a small town in the '60s to a full-fledged city today, Thimpu has come a long way to grab the title of the capital city of Bhutan, formerly upheld by the ancient town of Punakha. And it still doesn't have traffic lights! Watch out for the dancing traffic policemen that leave no stone unturned to light the way for local traffic. Spread out along the Wang Chuu River, Thimpu enjoys great weather with ample precipitation. Modernisation brought to the city, new ideas and ways of thinking but it has somehow remained impregnable to everything it doesn't find intriguing. Modern architecture couldn't have ever matched up the beauty of the buildings in a city that has decided to stay traditional by all means. At least, its building regulations say that!

PUNAKHA:
Quiet and resolute, Punakha stands apart as Bhutan's former capital city and is an important cultural centre that continues to pride itself in tradition. It is a town that stood witness to tumultuous periods in history and holds a special place in Bhutanese culture. As the winter home of the central monk body, it is here where Bhutan's royals are still crowned. Head to Punakha if you long to discover Bhutan's less touristy cultural gems and explore the country's untouched countryside at your own pace. The Punakha Dzong, the second oldest and second largest Dzong in Bhutan, stands proudly at the centre of life here. The Mo Chu and Pho Chu rivers that merge right at the Dzong, gurgle, rise, and gush downstream. The highlight of any trip here is the Chimi Lhakhang Monastery, which is devoted to the 'Divine Madman', Lama Drukpa Kuenley, an unorthodox saint who urged the people to look past conventional wisdoms and live life high. Step here and you are sure to hear wild tales about another side to Bhutan’s traditional periphery; amorous tales, stories of pleasure and miracles that are simply mystifying. The temple is frequented by those who long for a child as the locals identify it as a symbol of fertility after the glorious saint.

Roam around the market and soak in the colours of the town. In March, the town comes alive with the sounds of cymbals and cheers as the resident lamas perform ceremonial Chaam dances in masked costumes at the Punakha Dromche Festival. Chat with monks in English at the Nalanda Buddhist College and share little wisdoms. Revel in the beauty of the Himalayan countryside, sipping on Butter Tea at a resort and enjoying a plate of Ema Datsi. Succumb to nature.

Certainly, no trip to Punakha is complete without taking time to explore its wild side. Although the area is central to Bhutan's rice cultivation, there are plenty of short getaways which you can enjoy. The Chorten Nebu to Kabji Hoko Tso hike is an all-time favourite. For those driving in from Thimphu, the Dochu La Pass with its 108 chortens provides an excellent view of the Himalayas. For spotting wildlife in particular, take a day trip to the Phobjikha Valley that sprawls beneath the Wangdue Phodrang Dzong and you can sight rare birds and animals like the Black-necked Crane, Himalayan Black Bear, Barking Deer and Foxes. If that sounds like a tough call, take an excursion to Talo Valley and enjoy a picnic, or take part in a corn harvest.

Punakha is unlike bustling Thimphu or boisterous Paro, it calls out to those who truly long to witness life in Bhutan in its purest vision. So head here for that long break you have been looking for, and you will leave refreshed

Destination Information

ABOUT THE TERRITORY:
The Kingdom of Bhutan is a landlocked state in South Asia, located at the eastern end of the Himalayas and bordered to the south, east and west by the Republic of India and to the north by the People's Republic of China. Bhutan is separated from the nearby country of Nepal to the west by the Indian state of Sikkim, and from Bangladesh to the south by the Indian states of Assam and West Bengal. Buddhism was first introduced to Bhutan in the 7th century AD. The capital and largest city is Thimphu. In 2007, Bhutan made the transition from absolute monarchy to constitutional monarchy, holding its first general election. It hosted the sixteenth SAARC summit in April 2010. The total area of the country has been reported as 38,394 square kilometers (14,824 sq mi) since 2002. The area had previously been reported as approximately 46,500 km2 (18,000 sq mi) in 1997. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, the country expelled or forced to leave nearly one fifth of its population in the name of preserving its Tibetan Mahayana Buddhist culture and identity.

RELIGION:
It is estimated that between two thirds and three quarters of the Bhutanese population follow Vajrayana Buddhism, which is also the state religion. About one quarter to one third are followers of Hinduism. Other religions account for less than 1% of the population. The current legal framework, in principle guarantees freedom of religion; proselytism, however, is forbidden by a royal government decision and by judicial interpretation of the Constitution.
Buddhism was introduced to Bhutan in the 7th century AD. Tibetan king Songtsän Gampo (reigned 627–49), a convert to Buddhism, ordered the construction of two Buddhist temples, at Bumthang in central Bhutan and at Kyichu (near Paro) in the Paro Valley. Approximately two-thirds to three-quarters of the population practice Drukpa Kagyupa or Ningmapa Buddhism, both of which are disciplines of Mahayana Buddhism. Approximately one-quarter of the population is ethnic Nepalese and practice Hinduism. Christians, both Roman Catholic and Protestant, and non-religious groups comprise less than 1 percent of the population.

CULTURE:
Cradled in the folds of the Himalayas, Bhutan has relied on its geographic isolation to protect itself from outside cultural influences. A sparsely populated country bordered by India to the south and China to the north, Bhutan has long maintained a policy of strict isolationism, both culturally and economically, with the goal of preserving its cultural heritage and independence. Only in the last decades of the 20th century were foreigners allowed to visit the country, and only then in limited numbers. In this way, Bhutan has successfully preserved many aspects of a culture which dates directly back to the mid-17th century.
Modern Bhutanese culture derives from ancient culture. This culture affected the early growth of this country. Dzongkha and Sharchop, the principal Bhutanese languages, are closely related to Tibetan, and Bhutanese monks read and write the ancient variant of the Tibetan language known as chhokey. Bhutanese are physically similar to the Tibetans. Himalayas and settled in the south-draining valleys of Bhutan. Both Tibetans and Bhutanese revere the tantric guru Padmasambhava the founder of Himalayan Buddhism in the 8th century. Bhutanese Music has traditional genres such as Zhungdra, Boedra, and a modern genre called Rigsar. Bhutanese musicians include: Jigme Drukpa, who is also a leading Bhutanese musicologist.

CLIMATE:
Bhutan's climate is as varied as its altitudes and, like most of Asia, is affected by monsoons. Western Bhutan is particularly affected by monsoons that bring between 60 and 90 percent of the region's rainfall. The climate is humid and subtropical in the southern plains and foothills, temperate in the inner Himalayan valleys of the southern and central regions, and cold in the north, with year-round snow on the main Himalayan summits. Temperatures in Thimphu, located at 2,200 meters above sea level in west-central Bhutan, range from approximately 15° C to 26° C during the monsoon season of June through September but drop to between about -4° C and 16° C in January. In the south, a hot, humid climate helps maintain a fairly even temperature range of between 15° C and 30° C year-round, although temperatures sometimes reach 40° C in the valleys during the summer. And finally in Winter northeast monsoon brings gale-force winds down through high mountain passes, giving Bhutan its name—(Drukyul ), which mean Land of the Thunder Dragon.

LANGUAGE:
Drukpa or Bhutanese language is the national and official language of Bhutan. A total of 19 languages are spoken in Bhutan. Dzongkha is Bhutan’s official language. It literally means ‘the language spoken in the dzongs and administrative centers in all the districts of Bhutan’. It has its roots in the old-Tibetan language, spoken by the people of Western Bhutan. In 1992 the first edition of a book was published, describing the grammar of Dzongkha. Besides Dzongkha there are two major languages spoken by the people of Bhutan: Sharchokpa (spoken in Eastern Bhutan) and Nepali (spoken in Southern Bhutan).

Because of the ethnic diversity of the Bhutanese people, there are also 19 dialects and languages spoken throughout the country. You will be able to communicate with many in English though; it’s the instruction language in schools and therefore widely spoken.

CUISINE OF BHUTANIES:
The staple foods of Bhutan are red rice (like brown rice in texture, but with a nutty taste), buckwheat, and increasingly maize. The diet in the hills also includes chicken, yak meat, beef, pork, pork fat and mutton. Soups and stews of meat, rice, ferns, lentils, and dried vegetables spiced with chillies and cheese are a favourite meal during the cold seasons. Zow shungo is a rice dish mixed with leftover vegetables. Ema datshi, made very spicy with cheese and chillies, akin to chili con queso, might be called the national dish for its ubiquity and the pride that Bhutanese have for it. Other foods include jasha maru, a chicken dish; phaksha paa and fried rice. Dairy foods, particularly butter and cheese from yaks and cows, are also popular, and indeed almost all milk is turned into butter and cheese. Popular beverages include: butter tea, black tea, locally brewed ara (rice wine), and beer. Spices include: curry, cardamom, ginger, chillies, garlic, turmeric, and caraway.
When offered food, one says meshu meshu, covering one's mouth with the hands in refusal according to Bhutanese manners, and then gives in on the second or third offer.

TOUR ATTRACTIONS:
Bhutan itself has a refreshing green valleys, awesome snow-capped peaks, the scintillating exotic landscapes, variety of the floral species, rare and exotic faunas, streams of copper-blue waters and gorgeous waterfalls and several fascinating natural and man- made tourist spots.
