Sightseeing Bhutan

From subtropical plains to sub-alpine Himalayan heights in the North, where some peaks reach higher than 23,000 ft — Bhutan has a varied landscape.  A mix of a rich primate life and culture to explore, the kingdom is prime for hearty adventurers eager to learn the intricacies of a unique landlocked country in South Asia.

Whether you’re interested in learning about Bhutan’s heritage and history, or simply want to trek through the country’s staggering mountainous landscape and wide open plains, guides in Bhutan eagerly await your arrival. Bhutan’s skilled guides who are certified by the Tourism Council of Bhutan, and thus ensure top-quality service, know the ins and outs of their barely-touched country. They will lead you to the kingdom’s most fascinating sightseeing spots, for example the cliff-hanging Tiger’s Nest (Taktshang) and the old capital city of Punakha.

Bhutanese architecture is also a sightseers paradise; buildings made without a single nail or iron bar, commonly known as dzong architecture is popular. In keeping with the government’s desire to maintain Bhutan’s authenticity, Bhutanese architecture remains traditional, employing rammed earth construction methods, as well as stone masonry, and intricate woodwork for the roofs and window frames, all of which are fascinating for sightseers to marvel in a world where traditional practices are becoming increasingly rare.

But sightseeing in Bhutan is phenomenal even beyond the architectural beauties and stunning landscape where the steep mountains are crisscrossed by a network of fast-flowing rivers: Bhutan has an outstanding range of biodiversity and ecosystems to admire. Sightseeing guides in Bhutan can take you to see rare species, such as the golden langur (an Old World monkey), but the kingdom is also home to Bengal tigers, greater one-horned rhinoceroses, sloths and leopards. Also, while sightseeing, if you find yourself near fruit-bearing trees, you may also spot Himalayan black bears, red pandas, wild pigs, and barking deer.

Sightseeing Bhutan Continued...

Although much of early Bhutanese history is unclear — many records were destroyed when a fire ravaged the ancient capital in 1827 — stone tools, weapons, elephants, and remnants of large stone structures suggest that Bhutan has been inhabited since as early as 2000 BC. The age-old history, the glaciated mountain peaks, and the rich and unique cultural heritage has remained impressively intact because the kingdom was so isolated from the rest of the world for so long (i.e., until the early 1960s). This is what makes Bhutan a must-do for sightseers.

Don’t wait a moment longer to book your sightseeing guide in Bhutan. An unspoiled country awaits your arrival, one that has been referred to as The Last Shangri-La because of its preserved natural environment and cultural heritage. What’s more, you’ll return more complete having tasted Bhutan’s national dish, Ema Datshi, a unique dish made from chili peppers and cheese. You’ll also have sipped the local butter tea, and watched Bhutanese dancers perform in their colorful wooden face masks and elaborate costumes depicting the likes of heroes, demons, and gods.
