A small country tucked away amidst the mighty Himalayas sandwiched between China and India, Bhutan is a “must go in a lifetime” destination. Not so popular among the travel community a few years ago, this year Bhutan has earned itself a spot at the top among the list of popular destinations cited by several magazines including Lonely Planet.
Speaking about the best places to visit in Bhutan or the best Bhutan tourism places, the Taktsang Monastery or the Tiger Nest Monastery in Paro tops the list. It is the signature destination of Bhutan. The 5 hrs Tiger Nest trek to the monastery is one of the best things to do in Bhutan.
Bhutan is also popular for its unique traditional architecture. The Dzongs [monasteries], the chortens [memorial] and even the local houses people live in are all constructed in the traditional Bhutanese style. The Punakha Dzong in Punakha, the Rinpung Dzong in Paro, Gangtey Monastery in Phobjikha are few of the exemplars of the Bhutanese architectural wonders.Planning a tour to Bhutan?
