Bhutan, South Asia Part 2

The best way to experience Bhutan's wonderful nature and wildlife and for soaking in its unique and rich culture is through hiking and trekking.

It may not be easy trying to plan a trip to Bhutan in South Asia, because tourism is limited and arrangements have to be made and paid for in advance. It may be wise to engage a tour-operator to ensure everything goes as planned and wanted.

You need to pack for both hot and cold weather; the area near Tibet is constantly covered in snow and the mountain areas are rather chilly. The area near India on the other hand presents you with a hot, subtropical climate. If possible, avoid the monsoon season which usually occurs between June and August.

Since the country's government is all in favor of protecting the environment and preserving the habitat of its wildlife, you will come across many national parks and wildlife sanctuaries. Most of Bhutan's culture can be found in its capital Thimphu, which is also the place to be for unique, local and national home-made arts and crafts.

The city hosts the largest religious festival in Bhutan, known as the Thimphu Tshechu, which takes place during the end of summer/beginning of fall. It is quite a spectacle and impressive to see masked monks perform an ancient dance. So if you have the chance; stick around for it.

For more information on accommodations and some other useful hints, tips, and facts, I have but one recommendation; stick around for it!

Bhutan is a 'protected' country for tourism. The number of tourists is limited and controlled for each period :)

Audrey,
I read that and I had no clue they were so strict about it. I understand though; the country is beautiful from the pictures I saw.

God's Grace.
