Culture

  • 0

A cultural excursion to Bhutan includes a great deal of sightseeing. The spectacular landscape, the romanticism of the panoramic peaks at startling proximity, quaint little villages with neat patches of cultivated lands and wide fertile valleys of multi-tiered fields of paddy growing in them are some of the most picturesque images to behold. Prayer flags fluttering in the winds sending out their messages of peace and tolerance along with every gust of crisp mountain draughts gives succour to overburdened hearts and minds. A stroll along the streets of the capital city Thimphu, and other important towns gives you an insight into the lives of ordinary Bhutanese citizens. Shopping around for souvenirs is a pleasant and enjoyable experience. Brisk walks in cool deep forest, with the sun playing hide and seek under a canopy of thick foliage, followed by a drive along the highways of Bhutan, that cover important passes, offers marvellous views of the countryside as a number of vantage points are located along them. All along the roads of Bhutan, you will find waterfalls, idyllic nooks cascading greenery decorated with a profusion of colorful flowers and wild orchids and rhododendrons in every imaginable hue, everywhere. A constantly transforming landscape against a backdrop of scintillating Himalayan scenery is bound to leave you exhilarated and spellbound by the abundance and variety in flora, fauna and avifauna.

They provide a comprehensive kaleidoscope through which visitors can get a first hand idea and insight into the lives of the ordinary people of Bhutan.

In Bhutan, they also assume religious significance as people attend the festivals to become spiritually rejuvenated and strengthen the bonds of their faith.
