The New Years time is cold in the kingdom. Families are huddled together, more than usual– for it is also Losar– the Bhutanese New Year. During this time hardly anyone visits the kingdom… so you will have the entire kingdom to yourself. Enjoy the celebrations of Losar with your guide… visit a local farmer in the Black Mountain village of Gangtey… see Archery competition taking place in the capital…. Have New Year’s lunch at a farmhouse… Of course, you will also be exploring the highlights of the kingdom, such as the magnificent Punakha Dzong… dance with the Black-Necked Cranes in the Phobjikha Valley surrounded by Black Mountains….Warm up as you hike up to see the Tiger’s Nest monastery– the most revered of all Bhutanese temples…. AND toast the Bhutanese New Year with Chhang– the local drink– a warm beer-like liquor made from wheat and barley. An exceptional time to visit the kingdom when the air is crisp and clear and you have the entire kingdom just to yourself– as only Bhutan Travel could bring you !
