The Buddhist kingdom of Bhutan, or Druk Yul—Land of the Thunder Dragon—as the locals call it, is deep in the eastern Himalayas. In this idyllic place, terraced rice paddies surround villages, virgin forest covers steep hillsides, and snow-capped peaks tower high overhead.
Buddhism, the state religion, is evident everywhere: prayer flags flap in the wind; stupas, temples and ancient brick dzong (Buddhist fortress-monasteries) dot the countryside; and festivals explode with dancing, music and the colourful costumes and traditional clothing of the locals.
Bhutan truly is ‘the Last Shangri-La’, an absolute treat even for the most passionate globe-trotters, with its pristine and mighty mountain landscapes, lush green valleys, sacred monasteries, prayer flags, all this and a lot more. For sure, this ‘Druk Yul’ or ‘Land of the Peaceful Thunder Dragon’ is no ordinary place! Bhutan is a colourful kaleidoscope with its festivals, dzongs, monasteries and natural landscapes, where its development is measured by its Gross National Happiness. Come descend into a happy realm!
The best time to visit Bhutan is autumn, from late September to end November. Winter is excellent for birding in the South as well as rafting. From December to February, there is often snow in the higher regions and occasional snow in elsewhere. Spring, from March to May, is recognized as the second-best time to visit for trekking. June to August marks the monsoons. A major factor in choosing the best time to visit Bhutan, while overriding weather patterns is the festival schedule. They offer a first-hand glimpse of Bhutanese life and provide an opportunity to see the inside of the great dzongs.
