Bhutan - General Information

 
 

Known to the natives as Druk Yul [Land of the Thunder Dragon], Bhutan is regarded as the last paradise on earth. Its isolation, spectacular mountains, varied flora and fauna, ancient Buddhist monasteries, vibrant culture and mystic aura have made it so.

Though small in size, the kingdom‚€™s topography is one of dramatic contrasts. From the near-tropical southern border with India at an altitude of 300 m, the land rises to culminate in the over 7000 m peaks of the Himalaya in the north which form a natural frontier with Tibetan region of Bhutan‚€™s northern neighbour, China.

Lying in a valley [elevation 2,350 m], Thimphu is unlike any other capital in the world. The traditional architecture of its houses and buildings is particularly striking.

The places to visit are the Memorial Chorten, dedicated to the late King Jigme Dorji Wangchuk; Tashichho Dzong, seat of the Government of Bhutan and the summer residence of the central monk body; the Traditional Medicine Hospital where herbal medicines are prepared; the National Library, a treasure trove of ancient texts; the institute of Zorig Chosum for thanka painting, sculpture, wood and slate carving, gold works, embroidery and traditional boot making; Changangkha Lakhang which contains ancient scriptures and thanka paintings; and Simtokha Dzong, Bhutan ‚s oldest fortress which now houses a school for Buddhist studies. You can also visit the smithy on the other side of the Thimphu river to see traditional gold and silver smiths at work.
