About Bhutan

The Kingdom of Bhutan is known for its culture, architecture and archery, but in many ways, it has remained a anonymity until half a century ago. The Bhutanese call their country Druk Yul, Land of the Thunder Dragon, because of the violent snow storms.

Most Bhutanese men wear the "Gho", which is a knee-length robe tied at the waist by a cloth belt called a "Kera". Whereas, women wear a kira, a bright, woven ankle-length dresses with traditional patterns. It is clipped at one shoulder and tied at the waist.

The country has been recognized as one of the 10 bio-diversity hot spots in the world and as one of the 221 global prevalent bird areas. Its eco-systems harbor some of the most exotic species of the eastern Himalayas. Bhutan also has a rich wildlife with animals like the snow leopard, golden langur, blue sheep, tiger, water buffalo and elephant.

From the customary woven garments to the prayer flags on high mountain slopes, from the built environment to the natural environment, from the religious mask dances to the folk dances, this cultural inheritance is proudly apparent and offers a unique cultural setting.
