Bhutan, a Buddhist kingdom in South Asia at the eastern end of the Himalayas. It is a land of monasteries, fortresses and dramatic landscape ranging from subtropical plains to steep mountains and valleys. For serious trekkers, you have to visit Jomolhari in High Himlayas as it is one of the best destinations to travel to for serious trekkers.
Bhutan is the only country in the world to ban the sales of tobacco as the traditional culture is strictly protected and visitors carefully regulated. With customs, tradition and cultural festivals still going strong after centuries. It’s worth the trip!
Interesting Etiquette: #1 – A formal greeting is to bow with hands open and outstretched and the palms up. #2 – When wishing to be polite or to indicate interest, the Bhutanese adds “la” to the end of sentences during a conversation. Often they add “la” even when speaking in English.
