Buddhism is the predominant religion and its influence is apparent everywhere. Even from the way people dress - men in ‘gho' (knee length wrap around dress) and women in ‘kira' (traditional ankle length dress), it is evident that traditions are important to the Bhutanese.

This small, secluded country, known locally as Druk Yul or the ‘Land of the Thunder Dragon', is bordered by China to the north and India on the other sides. Surprisingly for a small country, Bhutan's landscape, vegetation and climatic conditions are very diverse. You have tropical climate and thick forests in the south, temperate climate and deciduous vegetation in the central regions, and snow covered Himalayan peaks reaching heights of 7000 m or more in the north. Take a look at our Bhutan weather guide for current temperatures and more information about the best time to travel in Bhutan.

Bhutan has incredible trekking trails and with 72% of its area under forest cover, is home to an amazing array of flora and fauna. Tiger, langur monkey, snow leopard, deer, bear and boar are some of the wildlife commonly found. Many species of wild orchids thrive in Bhutan and paint the countryside a vibrant hue particularly in spring (March to May) when flowers are in full bloom. The peak tourist season though, is autumn (September to November) when the weather is most pleasant and traditional festivals, the Thimphu festival in particularly, enthral visitors. There is an incredible wealth of things to see and do . Our  Map shows the location of many of these Bhutan highlights in relation to hotels that are booked through our site.

Ruled by the Wangchuck dynasty since 1907, Bhutan became a parliamentary democracy in 2008. The country's guiding philosophy, ‘Gross National Happinesswas famously promoted by His Majesty, the King Jigme Singye Wangchuck, father of the present king. It rejects the notion of economic success as the sole means to happiness and strives for modernisation which is in tune with the culture and traditions of the land.

The country is renowned for its colourful textiles and shawls which make excellent souvenirs and gift items. Shopping is a real thrill. Bhutan's love affair with chillies, an important ingredient in most dishes, is quite interesting, though the hot and spicy local dishes that are served up in Bhutanese restaurants might not go down well with all visitors.

Bhutan is unquestionably one of a kind and in many ways a role model for others to follow. A visit to this gorgeous land that straddles the ancient and the modern will surely stay in mind long after you return from your stay.
