Bhutan is known as one of the top travel destinations in the world. Much of it is because of its cultural heritage. More than 60 percent of tourists visiting Bhutan are on cultural trips.
The beauty of the country's culture lies in its resilience to the forces of globalization, especially given that Bhutan has been able to embrace modernity without diluting its cultural identity and values.
On cultural tours, tourists can visit fascinating ancient dzongs (fortresses), temples, and monuments. One of the most popular cultural tour packages is the visit to villages to see how Bhutanese communities live their life guided by strong Buddhist beliefs.
That is why starting from art, culture, architecture, and dress to rites and rituals are underpinned in the tenets of Buddhism. It is very common to come across landscapes dotted with fluttering prayer flags rising into the sky. And you will come across chanting monks in almost all the monasteries.
Most tourists say Bhutan is a country where you can experience and see a perfect blend of modernity and her time-tested traditions and cultural heritage.
If your trip to Bhutan coincides with annual festivals of some districts, you will witness intriguing mask dances in which most Bhutanese cultural values have their roots. The most popular events in the cultural itinerary are the Thimphu, paro, Punakha, and Bumthang Tshechus/festivals. Tshechus are week-long festivals where the teachings of Padmasambhava are imparted to the laity through mask dances. For the locals, it is time for post-harvest festivity, a time to wear the finest and eat the best.
Cultural trip includes short hikes to some serene and amazing monasteries. For example, one popular monastery that tourists visit repeatedly is Taktsang (Tiger's Nest) in Paro. The monastery sits on the face of a humungous rock cliff. It is believed that Guru Padmasambhava flew to Taktsang riding on a Tigress.
Far more than it can be described in words, the culture of Bhutan has amazing facets and unique stories. With a wealth of cultural and historical knowledge, our professional and government-certified guides are in a position to give you all the information you may want while on a tour.
Tour Escorts : All our Bhutan Tour are escorted by well-trained, knowledgeable Tour guides certified by the Department of Tourism. Most of the guides speak English but Japanese, French, Italian, German speaking guides could also be provided with prior information and at an additional cost.
