Bhutan is among the smallest countries in the world.For the Bhutanese, religious festivals offer an opportunity to become immersed in the meaning of their religion and gain much merit.The rich cultural and heritage is the pride of the Bhutanese people. People bring out their finest clothes, their most beautiful jewelries, and go for picnic with abundant alcohol and meat.They are also occasions for seeing people, and for being seen, for social exchanges, and for flaunting success.
This rich & untouched cultural values and age old traditions can be attributed to the self imposed isolation by the country till recent past.Now that Bhutan has finally opened its doors to the outside world, the government has taken many measures to preserve the unique culture and traditions of the nation.
