Highlights

  • Marvel at the way the Tiger’s Nest Monastery clings to the edge of a sheer rock cliff that plunges 2,952 ft. into the valley below.
  • Take a break and go biking with a local farming family. Take a peek inside their home and have a cup of tea.
  • Raise a glass at the Bumthang Brewery, famous for its Red Panda Weiss Beer.
  • Hike to the Lhakhang Temple, believed to bless women who seek fertility.
  • Enjoy the masked dances and cultural songs of the Black Necked Crane Festival.
  • Relax in a traditional hot stone bath, believed to be medicinal and healing for the bones.
  • Admire the artwork at the Dungtse Lhakhang temple. Built in 1433, it has three floors representing hell, earth and heaven.
  • Spend a day at the Punakha festival before taking a quiet evening stroll around the ancient market.

Tips

  • The national language of Bhutan is Dzongkha. Getting by in English won’t be a problem.
  • The currency in Bhutan is the Ngultrum. Credit is not widely accepted and there are no ATM’s that accept foreign cards.
  • Tipping while not expected, is appreciated. Between 10-20% is appropriate.
  • Don’t leave Bhutan without a Buddhist painting, carved masks and mala beads.
  • Dressing modestly (long pants and long sleeved tops) is important at religious sites and anywhere that the national flag is raised.
  • Be sure to try the national dish of Ema Datshi (chilli/cheese). Water in Bhutan is not considered safe to drink.
  • Bhutan is called “The Land of Thunder Dragons” because of the violent thunderstorms that sweep through.
  • The capital city of Thimphu has no traffic lights! White-gloved officers direct the traffic.
