Boasting soaring views of rugged, snow-capped mountain ranges decorated with fluttering prayer flags and dotted with ancient monasteries, Bhutan never fails to inspire plans and tease travellers from far and wide, and whole-heartedly enchant those visitors who make the journey. This astoundingly stunning nation – which seems to have been dealt more than its fair share of natural beauty – sits at the eastern end of the Himalayas, sandwiched between India and the Tibetan Plateau. From the iconic fold mountains that dominate the horizon to the forested hills and fast-flowing fivers of the valleys, the ‘Land of the Thunder Dragon’ is home to a great variety of well-conserved ecosystems, and remains as wonderfully biodiverse, as it is spiritual.

Historically the country has had little interaction with the outside world, resulting in a strong historical cultural identity and a populace keen to make new friends. Holidays here enjoy the endless potential for adventure, cultural emersion and exploration, from hiking to Taktshang Monastery which clings to a steep Cliffside, to watching the vibrant festival celebrations at one of the country’s energetic ‘Tsechu’ festivals or heading out in search of the mystical yeti in the Sakteng Wildlife Sanctuary.

Stefanie Studley
A country that measures itself on 'gross domestic happiness' must be doing something right. Combine this with friendly and curious locals, rugged mountain landscapes, stunning mountain-top monasteries and a deep spiritual belief system, and it is clear that Bhutan packs a big punch in terms of travel experiences. If it's your first trip to Bhutan, I suggest timing your visit to coincide with a festival, or 'tsechu', to truly experience Bhutan's history and culture at it's most colourful and vibrant. The Thimphu Tsechu, held in the capital, occurs for three days each year in September or October, during which monks and masked performers dance during the ancient spiritual celebration.

Stefanie's Tips
1
Attend the black-neck crane festival in November, as dances are held at Gangte monastery.
2
Try Ema Datshi. Chilli lovers will adore the national dish – a curry-style combination of chillis and locally-made cheese.
3
For insight into rural Bhutanese life, visit a farmhouse in the Bumthang Valleys and try the locals' butter tea.
