Things To Do in Bhutan

AsiaBhutanThings To Do in Bhutan
  • Trekking:Bhutan is a popular trekking destination, but treks are usually tough since there are no facilities to stay or dine in the higher areas, necessitating the carrying of all food and camping equipment. The ideal seasons for a stroll are autumn and spring. The roads are excessively muddy in the summer, and they are snow-covered in the winter. Despite the hardships of the walks, the magnificent scenery and the very kind, courteous, and hospitable people on the route more than compensate for all of the efforts and discomforts.
  • Festivals: Tshechu is Bhutan’s biggest religious celebration, held towards the end of summer and early autumn throughout the nation (for local details, see local articles), but Thimphu Tshechu is the most renowned, attracting approximately 30,000 people. The disguised dances of the monks, which were created according to exact instructions provided by ancient Buddhist teachers, are the centerpiece of the tshechu rituals. Seeing these dances, which are filled with holy symbolism, is regarded a highly hopeful and sanctifying experience, according to Buddhist philosophy, since all experiences leave an imprint in the stream of the mind that generates a matching outcome in the future. While the occasion is not serious and there is much pleasure, guests are reminded that it is still a religious holiday that is very important to the Bhutanese people, therefore proper conduct is required.
  • Archery: This is Bhutan’s national sport, and races are held nearly every weekend throughout the country. Visitors are welcome to come watch and participate in the applauding that accompanies these occurrences.
  • Hot Stone Bath: The hot stone bath is a ceremony in and of itself; river pebbles are heated till they soften and tumble into a wooden basin filled with water and Artemisia leaves. The water is progressively heated by the burning rocks, which subsequently release minerals into the water. These baths are traditionally constructed along a riverbed with plenty of stones and water, especially at sunset outside.
