Major Places to visit in Bhutan

Tiger Nest Monastery

The Tiger’s Nest is one of, if not the most iconic symbol of Bhutan, much like the Eiffel Tower or the Statue of Liberty. It’s one of the locations that, in my opinion, appears to be straight out of a fantasy book. When we finally arrived in Bhutan, it was also one of the things I was most eager to see.

The Paro Taktsang Monastery (Tiger’s Nest Monastery), perched precariously 3,000 meters above the Paro valley, was constructed in the late 17th century on the site of a cave dug into the rock. Although we refer to it as the Tiger’s Nest in English, Taktsang, which means “tigress’ lair,” more appropriately captures its name and the history behind its founding.


Even though there have been minor towns in the Thimphu Valley for many centuries and a dzong there since 1216, the city didn’t really take off until the king made Thimphu the new capital in 1961. A year later, the city started to slowly transition into its new role as the country’s capital as cars started to appear on the streets. 

The town is going through a lot of development. The city’s clock tower area has been converted into a park-cum-open air theater where live cultural acts are held, and new tree-lined roadways are being created. The national stadium and a brand-new riverside park were finished in 2008. A particularly beautiful and lush neighborhood surrounds the dzong and government structures.


The Paro River flows through the Himalayan town of Paro in western Bhutan. Up to the establishment of Thimphu as the nation’s capital in 1962, Fort Paro, a sizable rectangular structure with a seven-story tower, served as the primary cultural, commercial, and political hub of the nation. Paro continues to serve as the country’s summer capital. 

It has an air landing strip and is connected to Phuntsholing on the Indian border by the Indo-Bhutan National Highway. One of the most heavily populated areas of Bhutan is the Paro River valley, which is intensely farmed. Its average annual rainfall is 30-35 inches (760-890 mm), and its temperatures range from 40° F (4° C) in January to 75° F in July. 10,000 (latest estimate).

When is the best time to visit Bhutan? 

Bhutan is one of the fortunate nations to see seasonal changes. Although Bhutan has distinct summer, winter, spring, and fall seasons, it is a wonderful place to visit all year round. Bhutan is a fantastic destination all year round and, depending on the time of year, offers visitors something unique.

Bhutan is best visited between March and May when the flower-filled valleys are at their most vibrant. It can be in its festivities or festivals, the clear skies and views of the Himalayan peaks, the plethora of Himalayan plants and animals, or even just the breathtaking snowfall. Bhutan makes sure you have a terrific time in the presence of nature and all of its lovely byproducts and return home with a memory you will cherish for you.
