Thimphu, a delightful visit

Its great place to be for 3 to 4 days. Checking in from Jaigaon or Phuntsholing may take some time if travelled by road. Tiger's nest in Paro is a must visit. The structures in whole of Bhutan is pagoda style making the whole landscape unique. Visit Thimphu in February to enjoy snow.

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.

Mind Blowing

Place is worth a visit. The population of Bhutan is very less, even lesser than most Indian cities :P Hence the place is very clean and very less crowded. The natural beauty is well preserved and the pollution is very very minimal.

If you are a nature lover, this place is certainly a must visit.

Mind Blowing Thimpu

This is one of the best mountain destination. Thimpu is present capital of Bhutan. The city is very clean. There is no hawker in the street. People are very helpful. Please visit National School, punaka and thimpu markets. There is authentic handloom shops just near to Taj Tashi, You may feel products are costly but they are best in quality. Try Burger at Cloud9. You must try local food Kawa dasti and red rice.

feel pleasant and warm

Bhutan is nice place for trip. I would recommend staying in Paro and in Thimpu both cities. Scenic beauties are fantastic. April month is perfect for this visit. But who are expecting snows they must go within February to see the snow. But in April you need woollen clothes but weather is pleasant.

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.

The best hill resort near India

Reminds you of a capital of a small European state . No pollution , clean streets , no honking , no loud music , quaint cafes , great food , no pollution . Hotels are expensive for all foreigners except Indians as they do not want the the backpack tourists. Shopping is costly except for sales . Good air and road connections to the rest of the world .

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Good food at cafes but shopping is expensive by Indian standards except in a few places .

Activities & things to do: Dining out, walking around, mountain treks short and long

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Best is to travel by air else about 6 hrs drive from the plains .
