Bhutan is one of the second biggest Himalayan country situated in the eastern Himalayas. It is a landlocked country which is bordered by China to the north and India to the south. It is also well known as "Land of Thunder Dragon". It is a monarch country ruled by the king Jigmee Wang Chuk Namgyal. It had the population around 700,000 in 2005 census. This monarch country has relished well profitable growth and low inflation over the former twenty years with the well-adapted sound economic administration, virtuous government, and judicious safeguard of the natural resources.
Earlier Bhutan wasn’t well known but later slowly became popular when the main routes were opened to the outside world and slowly this kingdom became one of the best destination for explorers. Today Bhutan is recognized for its craggy, stunning landscape, rich exclusive culture, prehistoric monasteries, and temples.
Bhutan has very much to explore like the festivals which are celebrated very magnificently. There are lots of festivals like Parotsechu, Tangbimani festival, Thimpu festivals and so on. Only the myths of the festivals are different but the rituals are somewhat similar.
It is very interesting to explore these festivals as all the people from different villages gather together in their traditional costumes. During the festivals, you get to observe the mask dance where the laymen and monks wear the demon wood masks and perform the dance. As attending the function, you get to explore the rituals of the unique festivals plus you even get to explore the typical culture and hospitality of the Bhutanese people. Other attractions are things like monasteries, dzongs (fortress), heritage museums, ancient temple and one of the best visiting spot - Taktsang monastery (Tiger Nest Monastery) which is situated on the high cliff. These are some of the highlights that are to be explored in this beautiful country.
