Thimphu (alt. 2400m/7875ft) - The capital town of Bhutan and the centre of government, religion and commerce, Thimphu is a unique city with unusual mixture of modern development alongside ancient traditions.
New Year in Bhutan is one of the major festivals of the country. Like its neighbor, India Bhutanese people also welcome New Year with open hands. The English New year and the local New Year are celebrated with equal grandeur.
There are many ways to see Bhutan. A short trip for a week or less will introduce you to the world's last remaining Himalayan kingdom, with visits to the Paro and Thimphu valleys and perhaps an excursion to Punakha, the ancient capital.
