About the country

Bhutan is a vibrant Buddhist country recognized for its tranquil natural surroundings and spirituality. There are several monasteries here, and the people are warm and welcoming. Bhutan is a South Asian country that shares borders with China in the north and India in the east, west, and south. The 'Kingdom of Bhutan,' located at the eastern extremity of the Himalayas, is ideal for those seeking tranquility and clean air.

More than two-thirds of Bhutanese inhabitants practice Vajrayana Buddhism (also the national religion), and roughly one-third practice Hinduism, the country's second most prominent religion.

Traveling across Bhutan, you will see steep and high mountains crisscrossed by fast river networks. Bhutan's remarkable geographical variety and varying climate conditions contribute significantly to the country's amazing spectrum of biodiversity and ecosystems, which are well worth visiting. Thimpu is home to one of Bhutan's biggest bronze and gold-gilded Buddha sculptures.

Ema datshi, Bhutanese national food, is a highly spicy meal filled with cheese and chilies that they take great delight in and that you should taste as well. The people are also quite proud of the fact that Bhutan is the very first nation in the world to have prohibited the sale of cigarettes under its Tobacco Act of 2010, ensuring clean and pure air.

Bhutan's only international airport is Paro Airport. For Sri Lankans, a tourist visa to Bhutan is necessary. The stay is normally limited to 14 days, and the visa expires after 14 days.
