DRAMATIC LANDSCAPE, MONASTERIES & FORTRESSES…
Bhutan, a Buddhist kingdom on the Himalayas’ eastern edge, is known for its monasteries, fortresses (or dzongs) and dramatic landscapes that range from subtropical plains to steep mountains and valleys. In the High Himalayas, peaks such as 7,326m Jomolhari are popular trekking destinations. Paro Taktsang monastery (also known as Tiger’s Nest) clings to cliffs above the forested Paro Valley.
This dramatic Buddhist kingdom in the Himalayas offers culture, adventure and majestic scenery out of all proportion to its modest size…
Most visitors’ first glimpse of the country are of the majestic Paro valley in western Bhutan. This wide, fertile valley sits in the shadow of Mount Jhomolhari, the county’s highest peak that is regarded as a divine power. Just beyond Paro lies Taktsang Lhakhang or the Tiger’s Nest temple, one of the country’s most sacred pilgrimage sites. All dimly lit rooms and flickering butter lamps, it is perched at a staggering 3,000m on a sheer cliff face, reached by an arduous hike up the mountainside. Legend has it is that this is where the Guru Rinpoche, who is credited with bringing Buddhism to Bhutan, arrived from Tibet on the back of a tigress.
Trek: There are 23 official treks across the country. They vary greatly in degrees of difficulty, but even the shortest walk offers something impressive to see.
Into the wild: Bhutan is one of the last unspoilt corners of Asia. Almost 70 per cent of the country is blanketed in thick forest and there are high plateaux filled with wildflowers. It supports a number of elusive species of flora and fauna such as blue poppies, black-necked cranes and snow leopards that prowl the high slopes of the Himalayas. Half the world’s population of white-bellied herons live in Bhutan.
Also: Bhutan’s religious festivals, which mostly take place in spring and autumn, offer a fascinating glimpse of the country.
