Snowpeaks, yaks and alpine flowers! Spring is a gloriously lovely season in the Himalayas, when the earth renews its exuberant life and flowers bloom everywhere. This is the time when Nature recoups and rejuvenates and the best time to visit the kingdom. Begin with an exploration of the balmy and peaceful Punakha Valley the ancient capital and then on through the Black Mountains into the beautiful valleys of Bumthang and Ura where the annual festival and blessing of the Yaks take place. Then head back and stop at the Phobjhika Valley, the only glacial valley in the kingdom… then discover the mountain-rimmed capital of Thimphu before heading back to the charming valley of Paro. Once here continue your exploration as you go on a hiking exploration of the Chelela Ridge with its spectacular mountain views and spring flowers, and to the Tiger’s Nest, one of the most sacred sites in the Himalayan Buddhist universe. Bhutan is one of the last remaining pristine ecosystems left on earth. The producer and director of The Living Edens said “If there is any country on earth that qualifies as an Eden – not just in part but in its entirety – I believe it is Bhutan.” We at Bhutan Travel certainly agree.
