It’s time to say goodbye Bhutan.
I spent there a very intensive and interesting time. I like it a lot! And, as a traveler, I hope Bhutan will not change so much in future. It’s very unique like it is.
There is a wide range of wild animals in Bhutan.
Bhutan has 4 seasons, maybe with not the most typical temperatures, but it’s spring, summer, autumn and winter.
Bhutan – Punakha District
Bhutan is a very scenic country.
About two-thirds of Bhutan is covered with forests.
Bhutan – Dochula & Himalayan
The Dochula pass offers a stunning 360 degree panoramic view of the Himalayan mountain range, if the weather is good enough.
Bhutan – Dochula Pass
Dochula pass is located on the way to Punakha from Thimphu.
I can highly recommend it; even when you’re car sick…
Traveling by bus in Bhutan may be a good and interesting option. 🙂
Bhutan – Paro
Paro with the Paro Valley is a lovely region in Bhutan with many historic and religious sites.
The ngultrum is the currency of Bhutan.
What’s interesting, for a very long time, Bhutan didn’t have it’s own currency, and people had to simply barter for the goods.
Bhutan – Tiger Nest
I think that the Tiger Nest is the “best place in Bhutan”,
I mean, it’s the largest tourist attraction in the country.
“Not visiting the Tiger Nest is like not being in Bhutan at all” – do you agree?
Bhutan – Tiger Nest Temple
The Tiger Nest temple is one of the most holy sites in Bhutan.
It was built in 1692.
It’s located on the cliff (at 3120 m above sea level) above the Paro Valley.
Bhutan – Tiger Nest
Tiger Nest is the most iconic site in Bhutan.
Dzongkha in an official language in Bhutan.
Bhutan – Thimphu
Thimphu is the capital and largest city of Bhutan.
While I was taking pictures of this cat,
someone asked me am I German, “because Germans love cats”.
I don’t like to generalize,
but what’s your experience? 😉
Bhutan – Punakha Dzong
Dzong is a fortress-monastery.
It’s an important building in Bhutan, and you’ll often see dzongs while visiting Bhutan.
Archery is the national sport of Bhutan.
Bhutan is also known for the idea of Gross National Happiness;
however, it doesn’t mean it’s the happiest nation.
Bhutan – Tibetan Horn
Doesn’t it look impressive?
Can you imagine playing on the Tibetan horn?
