Sometimes referred to as “The Last Shangri-La” Bhutan lies tucked away in the Himalayas, seemingly lost in time. One of the best ways to explore this enchanting country is to stay at a Bhutan hotel that lets you experience both its natural and cultural heritage. Uma Bhutan is one such accommodation option and is a Paro hotel set amidst the breathtaking beauty of the Paro Valley, while also being within easy reach of the famed Tiger’s Nest monastery and the capital Thimpu. Steeped in Buddhist tradition, Bhutan still has a laidback old world charm far removed from modern city life. The weather can vary from area to area with the North bordering Tibet known for its cold climate and snow and the South which is near the border of India featuring a more sub-tropical climate. Trekking is a great activity to try here, though one should look to bring warm clothing and comfortable and durable footwear. Apart from visiting ancient Buddhist monasteries and temples, one can also explore such natural attractions as the Jigme Singye Wangchuck and Royal Manas national parks as well as the Sakteng and Bomdeling wildlife sanctuaries. While tourists have to pay a daily tariff when they enter the country, the experience is well worth it and lets you embark on a rewarding journey of discovery.
