Bhutan is the last sacred kingdom tucked high away in the Himalayas that still has kept its culture and tradition throughout years of isolation. Bhutan has only slowly allowed an increasing number of visitors. It is a country that is different and mystic and holds many surprises. Not only does it measure its success in gross national Happiness it is carbon neutral and everyone still wears a traditional dress in public the elegant, ankle-length kira for women and the kimono-like gho for men. Add to this the presence of monks everywhere and you feel you are in a special place.
Bhutans cuisine is characterized by a of lot of chilies, red peppers, yak, cabbage, and spinach. As probably many of you will enter Bhutan on a group tour everything is pre-arranged which means you will eat in hotels and restaurants that cater to tourists. Ask your guide upfront for places where they prepare Bhutanese dishes, especially something with mushrooms, as Bhutan has more than 400.
Bhutan has a wide variety of climates with the warm south and east and cooler central part.
