Tour Packages of Bhutan

Bhutan's early history is steeped in Buddhist tradition and mythology. The medieval and modern times were a time of warlords, feuds, giant fortresses and castles. The visit of Padma Sambhava in AD 747 is an important landmark in the history of the country. The recent history of the kingdom begins with a hereditary monarchy, founded in the last century. It continued the country's policy of isolationism. Under the leadership of the third king Bhutan emerged from the medieval past of serfdom and reclusion. Despite the speed of modernisation, Bhutan has maintained a policy of careful, controlled policy of development in order to preserve its national identity. Though known as Bhutan to the outside world, for Bhutanese Drukpa, the country known as Druk Yul: The land of thunder dragon

Geography:
Bhutan is a landlocked country with a land area of 47,000 sq. km. Bordered with Tibet to the north, Indian states of West Bengal and Assam in the south and Arunachal Pradesh in the east, Bhutan is a land of soaring snow-capped peaks, alpine meadows and densely forested hills and ravines abounding in exotic flora and fauna, waterfalls and streams that gush in wild abandon. From May to August, an awesome variety of flowers decorate the hills.

Climate:
Bhutan's climate is quite unpredictable and varies dramatically, with tropical climate in the south, temperate at the middle and cold to the north of the country. In Thimpu and Paro valleys, during the winter daytime is clear but drops below freezing during the night. Western Bhutan during mid December to early January can be beautifully clear and dry. Late December to mid February is the period of heaviest snowfall in the higher elevations.

Flora & Fauna:
One of the ancient names given to Bhutan, a botanical paradise, was 'Southern Valleys of Medicinal Herbs'. To name a few floras in Bhutan - rhododendron, junipers and magnolias several metres high, carnivorous plants, rare orchids, blue poppy (national flower), edelweiss, gentian, medicinal plants, danphe, giant rhubarb, high-altitude plants, tropical tress, pine etc. Among the rare and exotic faunas found in Bhutan are - Golden Languor, Red Pandas, black-necked Crane, Snow Leopard, Takin, Musk Deer, Himalayan Brown Bear, Himalayan Marten, Tiger, Hornbills, Pheasants, Mountain Goats and timid Blue Sheep.

Season:
One can visit to Bhutan any time of the year but mid September to November and March to June are considered the best season. During these months, colourful festivals brighten up the country.

Religion/Culture:
The state religion is Drukpa Kagyupa, a branch of Mahayana Buddhism, has been institutionalized in the Dratshang (Central Monk body), headed by the Je Khenpo (Chief Abbot), who is chosen from among the most learned Lamas and enjoys an equal rank with the King. Bhutan is the only country in the world to have adopted Mahayana Buddhism in its Tantric form as its official religion. The Buddhist faith has played and continues to play a fundamental role in the cultural, ethical and sociological development of Bhutan and its people. It permeates all strands of secular life.

People:
The total population of Bhutan is about 600,000. Bhutanese are a Mongolic race of people who originally migrated into and settled the country in the 7th Century AD. A nomadic and pastoral society at first, they gradually turned to agriculture in the fertile valleys. There are three main ethnic groups - the Ngalongs in the western and central regions are the descendants of Tibetan immigrants, who arrived in Bhutan from the 9th century. The Sharchops, who live in the east of the country, are recognized as the original inhabitants of Bhutan. The third group known as Lhotshampas represents the Nepali speaking ethnic group.

Language:
Dzongkha, "the language of the dzong", belongs to the Tibetan families of languages. Originally spoken only in western Bhutan, it is the Bhutan's national language. The written form of the language was only devised a little over 30 years ago, and is based on Classical Tibetan (known as Choekey in Bhutan). It has prevailed as a religious language throughout a vast geographical area (Tibet, Nepal, Ladakh, Sikkim, Mongolia and Bhutan) since as long as the eighth century.
