Land of the thunder dragon- Bhutan

In my life I travel different places of India but my first International tour is Bhutan. In 2002 we had visited Bhutan. Bhutan is very nice country. The scenic beauty of Bhutan was mesmerizing us. Today I will share the experience of the journey from Bhutan to Kolkata.

“Take only memories, leave only footprints.”

We stayed at Thimpu, The famous city of Bhutan. The beauty of Thimpu was exquisite us.In Thimpu we had visited at Kyerchu Temple but this look like a monastery. In 12th century this temple was build and this is a very nice temple.

SAARC building also located here and this is also a tourist spot but no one can enter in this building. All the international SAARC conferences are done here.

The natural beauty of Thimpu is exquisite to everyone.

This tour was unexpected for us because it was a sudden plan. We have one extra day so we came back from Bhutan to NJP and then we went to Jaldapara.

Wild life experience:-
First time when I went to Jangal Safari at jaldapara my experience was amazing. In the way of Jaldapara the scenery was beautiful and it took around 3 hours from NJP to reach Jaldapar. We had also spent in HalangBanglow.

We had seen some elephant crossing the road. The experience to see these animals in front of my eyes was amazing. First experience was good in Jaldapara, though second time we again visited at Jaldpara and that time we enjoyed more than first time.
