Bhutan Flights GuideBhutan is a Buddhist kingdom located at the easternmost point of the Himalayas. The country abounds with dramatic landscapes, monasteries, and fortresses (colloquially known as dzongs). Of these, the most popular are Manas National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where guests can see tigers and elephants, among many other beautiful and endangered animals, a 17th century riverside palace called the Punakha Dzong, and the Paro Taktsang, a monastery located along the side of a cliff.
The country's capital, Thimphu, is laden with tributes to the Buddha, including a 51.5 meter-high bronze-and-gold tribute to the Buddha Dordenma who sits on a hill overlooking the city. Thimphu is also home to a large farmer's market, where locals and tourists alike can delight in the food and handicrafts on weekends. Prime-time to visit this culturally rich country is between April and June, when temperatures are mild and the wet season is still a ways off. However, it would be remiss to not consider visiting for the September.October festival Thimphu Tshechu, when the capital colorfully celebrates with masked dances and prayer. The only international point of entry to the country is located in Paro and serviced by Drukair and Bhutan Airlines.
