When to travel to Bhutan
CO VID 19 Hits the tiny Himalayan kingdom
Bhutan is now fighting against the spread of deadly virus by closing down the schools and institutions, government distributing free face mask and hand sanitizer, creating awareness at all levels of the people, building numerous flu clinic in all regions, and citizens at all level volunteering to help contain the virus and stop spreading.
Bhutan is fully prepared to contain and mitigate the spread of the deadly virus called COVID - 19.
Festivals in Bhutan
Each village, community and district celebrate the Tshechu in their various style and fashion – however the main theme is same everywhere with slight variations depending upon the ethnic background, tradition and local myths. The festivals revolve around well choreographed masked dances based mostly on incidents from the life of Guru Rinpoche or Padmasambhava, the saint who introduced Buddhism to Bhutan in the eight century. Witnessing the masked dances is very spiritual and most importantly one is cleansed of all sins and bestowed with blessings and good wishes.
Travel to Bhutan, How, Why and When?
Bhutan is not a country for every traveler, or a favored travel destination. But, Bhutan is also not just another country to be struck off the bucket list once visited. While Bhutan continues to be one of the top travel destinations and once a lifetime must visit country for the right reasons, it should also be for the authentic experience that can never be replaced. Has traveling made you a better person, conscious of your health, environment, and mindful of your surroundings? Were there epiphanic moments in your travels that changed, among others, your perceptions of life, and perhaps made you more grounded and humble? Should these also be considered the benefits of traveling?
