Bhutanese Delights on 8th October, 2020
Bhutan- the country’s name alone brings to mind the images of a secluded kingdom hidden amidst the mighty peak…
Often referred to as the happiest country in the world, The Kingdom of Bhutan is a landlocked country stretching between the southern slopes of the Himalayas to the north, and grasslands and savannas to the south. Amidst these two are the highlands, distinctly separated into valleys which inhabits the majority of the population. A long parallel road, crossing the country from east to west, inter-winds through the valleys and connecting these through elevated mountain passes. Seventy percent of the country’s territory is covered with Eastern Himalayan thick forests.
Bhutan, together with few other neighboring regions, has a predominantly Tibetan cultural influence. The language spoken in Bhutan is a dialect of the Tibetan language, the religion is Tibetan Buddhism, and its glorious history is strongly influenced by Tibetan feudalism. The still existing Dzongs, fortified monasteries which still serves to date as both religious centers and civil service institutes are a clear testimony to the feudal system that lasted here until the mid-20th century.
With centuries of self-inflicted isolationism, the Bhutanese society retains to date very traditional way of life. The population is very religious, and heavily relies on subsistence agriculture of small grain and vegetable plots terraced down the mountain slopes along the narrow valleys.
Slowly opening up to visitors from outside, in a much-controlled manner, Bhutan, the shy Himalayan kingdom offers those visitors an authentic journey into a culture that still retains a medieval feel to it, through beautiful Himalayan landscapes, and along historic sites that tells the story of a country that is about to go through a major change in years to come.
