Bhutan

Bhutan is best known to the world as the last Shangri – la that has a rare combination of harmony and decree amidst a landscape of incredible beauty. It has also been known discreetly around the Globe and to most people it is a hidden kingdom shrouded in mystery.

It is cradled in the deep folds of the rich Himalayas which offer the flora and fauna, dazzling white peaks and lush valleys with stunning beauty and aesthetic grandeur.
An element that is crucial in understanding the Bhutanese people is by getting a basic idea about Bhutan Buddhism Idealism which is enriched by the essence of Drukpa Kagyu School of Buddhism.

It is a country that relies on farming and about 95% of the populations are subsistence farmers. But this factor only has an added value and in present times Bhutan is classed as one of the most exotic destinations in the world.

Bhutan has also made a name for itself for not having any traffic lights! It just adds a tad bit dynamism and this factor often arouses curiosity.

Explore and unravel the untouched wonders of Bhutan for yourself. Witness the snow-capped mountains, emerald green landscapes, fascinating wildlife and impressive Dzongs.

VISIT BHUTAN

BHUTAN - EXPLORATION

The ideal time for trekking and touring in Bhutan is late September to late November. This is the time when the skies are generally clear and the high mountain peaks rise to the flamboyant blue sky.

March and May is another option to make up your minds about visiting Bhutan although it is the monsoons and you are likely to get wet no matter what. The plus side to this time of the year is that you could witness one of Bhutan’s most exotic natural surroundings in bloom.

To avoid the monsoons you could visit Bhutan during the months of June and August when an average of 0.5meters that is 1.5feet of rain water hits Thimphu and up to 1meter that is 3feet saturates the eastern hills.

Winter is a good time for touring in western Bhutan including activities such as bird watching in the subtropical jungles in the south and white water rafting. The days during winters are sunny and cool but it's quite cold once the sun sets. From December to February the road from Thimphu to Bumthang and the east are generally closed because of the snowfall issues. It would be best not to plan to visit these regions at this time of the year while you are on your visit to Bhutan.

In recent years overcrowding has become an issue in Bhutan during the major Buddhist festival known as Tsechus which takes place at Thimphu and Paro. This festival takes place during the best seasons and you stand a much better chance of getting flights, accommodation and probably a more intimate and rewarding festival experience if you schedule your trip around one of the other cultural events.

We at Earthbound Expeditions generally don't suggest a limited itinerary to visit Bhutan as it cost quite a lot and you have to enjoy the tour taking enough time to explore it.

P.S
• Bhutan tour can be combined with Darjeeling, Sikkim, Tibet Lhasa, Taj Mahal or Jaipur in India.
