Overview

5 day 4 night Bhutan Tour, Bhutan is between China and India, in the southern part of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, there is a quiet country. From a Tubo tribe to a kingdom, there is no rhythm to the development of the world economy, but one of the countries with the highest global happiness. Here is the only place where Tibet passes through Bhutan. Culture is bred here with conflicts.

In the 8th century, Songtsen Gampo built the first temple "Pray Chu Temple" in Paro, the oldest temple in Bhutan. The watchtower that resisted foreign enemies in the past has become the "Bhutan National Museum" since 1968. The "Tiger Temple" still stands on a cliff of more than 3,000 feet, and the gods sheltered everything in the valley from the beginning until the end.

Thimphu has only one football field, one basketball court, one tennis court, and the capital of a small golf courseThimphu is the political, military, religious, and cultural center of the Kingdom of Bhutan. On the streets of Thimphu, you can see Bhutanese women wearing "Kira" skirts with their ankles; men are wide-necked with fat sleeves and the upper body is wearing a "fruit" "The traditional robes, holding the white cuffs, knee-length skirts, and stockings.

According to the locals, the fat sleeves can double as pockets, stuffing things into the sleeves, and pinching the cuffs with their hands, the things inside will not fall out. There are no buttons or pockets on the men's clothing, and only a wide belt is used to tighten the clothes, thus forming an "open mind" for the Bhutanese men, and things that can't fit in the sleeves can be placed in their arms. In 1955, it was once the capital of Bhutan. The city of Punakha is situated on a large river valley.

A river that melts the glaciers of the Himalayas and flows through the Punakkas. The left side of Punakha is called the mother song, the right side is called the father song, and the two rivers merge into the Punakka before the Punakha.
