In the land of thunder dragon

It was a nice view of Mount Everest during flight from Kolkata to Paro international airport. A very clean and well disciplined country with excellent gross happiness index. They claim their happiness to their spiritual inclination and love for nature and mankind. A pure Buddhist state with ancient Buddhist temples and latest world biggest Buddha bronze statue. The monarchy is loved by its people as it is pro democracy. No horn are blown as a commitment to prevent noise pollution and as a gestures towards environment preservation at large. Very beautiful landscapes and fresh water river add tranquillity and beauty to this place.

Must visit Bhutan!

Thimphu, the capital of Bhutan, is a lovely little city, especially if you are a walker. The main Chorten, The Dzong, Takin reserve, the Sakyamuni Buddha statue are all easily accessible through cabs which run aplenty. There are lots and lots of souvenir shops with decent prices from where you can pick up stuff. The Junction is the best bookstore in town, right in the middle of Thimphu. Good eating joints include the Zone, Klien's cafe, Big Bakery (run by differently-abled children), Mojo Park and Chopsticks. Tuesday is generally a dry-day. You can hire cabs, bicycles or simply walk in town. The handicraft market is a shopper's delight if you are willing to spend some good money. The Textile Museum is also worth a visit. Unseasonal rain wasted one day of ours, but the snow on distant peaks made a great view, and the sun was out the next day. Towns like Punakha are a 3-hour drive away, and the dzong there is a place one must visit.
