The Culture of Bhutan


Cradled beneath the Himalaya mountain chain, Bhutan has been allowed to develop culturally speaking mostly free of outside influences, making for most distinct and autoctonous cultural traditions. In fact, Bhutan has long maintained a policy of strict isolationism, both culturally and economically, with the goal of preserving its cultural heritage and independence. Only in the last decades of the 20th century were foreigners even allowed to visit the country, and only then in limited numbers. In this way, Bhutan has successfully preserved many aspects of its culture, which date back to at least the mid-17th century.

Festival Season in Bhutan

It’s always festival season in Bhutan but the fall gets the top prize - especially September and November, when some 50 festivals take place throughout this sparsely populated country, only about half the size of Indiana. Some of the festivities last a day and others continue for a week; thus, it is best to plan your visit to Bhutan for Septermber or November.
