Bhutan: Taking the Middle Path to Happiness
Emmy Award Winning Documentary

In partnership with Vendetti Productions and Wehrheim Productions of Hawaii, Bhutan Tours and Travels worked as the logistics partner and cultural consultant to film, produce and launch the Emmy Award winning 1 hour long documentary. With an 8-film crew supported by local Bhutanese, the onsite filming and interview was a 2-week long journey and adventure. In the eight-member film crew was also world famous jazz flautist and saxophonist Paul Horn, so we had to organize a music concert for the Bhutanese crowd. It was success and well received. The film went on to win 2 Emmy Awards and is aired on PBS in America and Bhutan Broadcasting Service TV.

EXPLORE CULTURE

As soon as you land in Bhutan, you are immersed into the living cultural landscape of Bhutan – from the architecture, to the people, the villages, the mountains, food, monasteries and the environment. Buddhism and the natural environment that surround us largely shape the unique culture of Bhutan. A highlight of the cultural richness of Bhutan are the annual masked dance festivals or also known as ‘tsechu” symbolizing amity, peace and compassion. These festivals are held in various parts of the Kingdom at different times of the year (link to festival dates). The most popular festivals amongst visitor are the ones held in Paro and Thimphu. The Paro Tshechu takes place usually around March/April and the Thimphu Tshechu in September/October according to the lunar calendar. Mask dances, performed by monks as well as by the laity, are imbued with deep religious significance and depict rich cultural traditions. It is also a social gathering, where people dress in their beautifully intricate and colorful hand woven national dresses (gho for men and kira for women) and feast over either packed lunches/picnics or in restaurants.

SEEK ADVENTURE

Bhutan is a paradise for hikers, trekkers. The clean environment, the high mountain passes and the virgin forests, rich with rare flora and fauna. Blessed with unparalleled scenic beauty of majestic snowcapped peaks, lush valleys, and large tracts of virgin forests, Bhutan is home to numerous rare and endangered species of wildlife such as the blue sheep, musk deer, red panda, snow leopard, black bear, golden languor and the unique Takin, its national animal.

Unlike trekking elsewhere in the region, trekking in Bhutan presents an accurate representation of the activity. One will hardly come across any other tourists or people other than highlanders on rare occasions and your trekking team. This also enables visitor to gain an additional perspective on Bhutan and the origins of its vibrant and unique culture.
