You don’t need much to visit Bhutan. But you need to be ready to let the quiet and tranquility of the place consume you.
1.Easy access for Indians
It’s as easy to enter Bhutan for Indians as it is changing cities within the country. You only need a valid id proof to clear customs. No fuss, no hassle. All you need is a desire to admire the kingdom nestled in the Himalayas. You can fly to Paro by Drukair from New Delhi or Kolkata.
2. Unadulterated calm and peace prevail in Bhutan
Imagine a country with no traffic lights, roses larger than any you’ve ever seen, lush greenery, snow-capped Himalayas and swishing valleys with fluttering prayer flags. There is no place for unchecked development and rampant industrialisation here; only loads for happiness.
3. Culturally rooted and simple
The people of Bhutan wear their traditional garb to schools, offices, dzongs and temples. The houses are built in keeping with the typical Bhutanese style of architecture. And the phallic symbol literally everywhere signifying fertility, is not considered taboo.
4. Sublime architecture
Be it the majestic Tiger’s Nest or Taktsang Lhakhang, Bhutan’s most famous monastery; Punakha Dzong, a beautiful fortress or Chimi Lhakhang, Temple of Fertility, the country has some fantastic structures with history that’ll take you by surprise.
5. Gorgeous properties
From Aman and Uma luxury properties throughout the country, to small boutique hotels in Paro and Punakha, Bhutanese hospitality sets you at ease. You can wander freely and let all the goodness of the mountain air nourish every cell of your body.
6. Bhutanese food
Where rice is red and chillies are considered one of the main ingredients, the food in Bhutan can give you a unique palate experience. From restaurants like Bhutan Kitchen serving excellent cuisine to bright and welcoming cafes like Art Cafe and Karma’s Coffee make for a great spot for cappuccino and conversations.
