Information about Bhutan

The landlocked country of Bhutan, surrounded by India on three sides and Tibet China in the north, is a hidden gem of a country. Here is all the information about Bhutan you will need to plan a perfect itinerary for your trip.

Weather in Bhutan: The southern part of Bhutan enjoys a mild temperate climate, typical to the Terai-Dooars region of West Bengal and Assam. The change in the weather and temperature is mostly owed to the change in the altitude than the actual location. As one goes further up north, the height of the Himalayan peaks increase and goes as much as 7000 meters in the extreme north. The summers are warm and sunny in the south, including in the capital Thimphu, with an average temperature of 25°C. The winters go below 0°C by 2-3 °C. In the mountainous terrains, temperature falls by 7°C for every kilometer climbed, and snowfall is common during winter. You can get a complete range of temperature and precipitation from a detailed Bhutan travel guide. The best time to visit is during spring and early summer, from March to May, and autumn, from September to mid-November.

Nightlife in Bhutan: Nightlife in Bhutan is mostly centered on Thimphu. Nightclubs and pubs like Vivacity, Mojo Park, Space 34 and Club Ace are happening nightclubs with great music and flowing drinks. Mojo Park has one of the best local live music scenes one can ever find. Among other options, there are stages for Bhutanese cultural performances like Khuju Luyang or live Bhutanese music at the Drayangs with local beer and whiskey served at hand. A Bhutan guide will help you sift through the neighborhood and find the best spots to spend the night.

Food in Bhutan: Chillies are an important part of Bhutanese cuisine. One can find red chilies in some of the best dishes. Ema Datshi is almost like a national dish, which is basically chilies and cheese. Phaksha Paa (pork with chilies) and Jasha Maru (spicy chicken) are also famous. Red rice, local to Eastern Himalayan valleys, is a staple, so are dumplings stuffed with anything one can think of. Among drinks, Suja (butter tea) and Arag (alcohol) are lovely to warm you up in the cold.

Shopping in Bhutan: Before heading out for shopping in Bhutan, it is necessary to know where you can buy things from and what you should be buying. What you should buy is also an important thing to know. For assistance, you can always consult a Bhutan tour guide to know the places where you can shop to your heart’s content. Most people prefer to buy from the Government emporiums, as there is the assurance of authenticity and fair price. National Handicraft Emporium in Thimphu is one of the best places for shopping. Bhutan specializes in thirteen different forms of art and craft categories which they call Zorig Chusum. One should definitely consider buying thangkas, hand-woven textiles, handmade wooden bowls called dappas, Dzi beads, masks and other local handicraft items as souvenirs.

Festivals in Bhutan: The Tshechu festivals of Bhutan are known far and wide for their colors and spirit. The celebration is about Bhutan culture. They take place over 3-4 days on the tenth day of any lunar month. Paro Tsechu festival is most famous, closely followed by Punakha and Thimphu Tsechu. Jambay Lhakhang Drup festival, dedicated to Guru Rinpoche and the Haa summer festival match the Tshechu performances in their vibrancy and energy. All of these festivals are observed through folk performances, masked dance programs and historical storytelling of myths, legends, heritage and other interesting facts about Bhutan.

    • Trip to Bhutan

      My trip to Bhutan was very spontaneous. I had less than a week to plan the trip and make all my bookings. I decided to use travel triangle to find an agent as I just used the site before and was happy with the service. The first response I received was from the Bhutan Old Monk team and they were very prompt and helpful. As the trip was very last minute, I had just a few days to plan and arrange everything and the team especially Suman was really helpful with making changes to the itinerary as I needed. Suman was constantly in touch with me to ensure everything was going well. Even while on my vacation they were able to provide me with assistance when needed. Yadop met me on my first day in Bhutan. I requested him to change my hotel as the location wasn't convinient and he got it changed within a few hours. Jeewan was an exceptional driver/guide/photographer/genie (lol) throughout the trip. He was very helpful and even offered to drive me around in the evenings because I was travelling alone and he was afraid I would get bored. My solo trip turned out to be a lot less solo than expected but I really appreciated the hospitality. Bhutan is an amazing and wonderful country that I visited by chance because it was convince to travel to, required no visa and was completely safe for a woman traveling alone. I would encourage more Indian, solo, woman travelers to visit this beautiful country and experience the beauty and tranquility of the land of the thunder dragon!

    • Trip to Bhutan

      Mr Yadop has been prompt in his services, watever was promised was delivered to my satisfaction. Equally efficient was Mr Namgay who was our guide during our trip. He was patient, adjusting and gave us a personalized experience. I strongly recommend both Mr Yadop and Mr Namgay.. If you are planning for Bhutan they are the people you need to reach out to.

    • Trip to Bhutan

      We had a wonderful trip with travel triangle at a nominal rate, stay in phuensholing was awesome with swimming pool, stay at Thimpu was very good in the capital city and the stay in Paro at an elevated resort was wonderful, hospitality too was unimaginable. The driver come guide Mr. Yugen was too cooperative, soft spoken, Very friendly, drove the latest KIA SUV safely on the ghat sections, finally the shopping was too memorable. Stupa, bhudda statue, temples in phunaka, fortress in paro & thimpu, dochula pass, museum was too good and ultimately the hiking in tiger's nest was superb, and we had a sweet memorable trip with travel triangle. Thanks to the organizors.
