Bhutan is known as a country of sprawling forests, venerated monasteries, overpowering fortresses, lush green valleys fed by bountiful rivers and age-old practices, deeply rooted religious beliefs and vibrant festivals. The Paro Spring festival makes way for various cultural dances and displays. The main highlight of this festival is the unfolding of the gigantic Thangka (embroidered painting) at dawn just before sunrise which is breathtaking. Colorful Bhutanese attire and their spicy and zesty food are some of the other highpoints.
