Bhutan Culture

Home / Bhutan Info / Bhutan Culture


Bhutan opened its borders to the international community only in the 1960’s, and hence, its culture has remained largely intact and isolated. Religious influence on its culture is dominant.

Bhutan has a unique national dress, gho for men and kira for women. The national language “Dzongkha” is the main langauge with English gaining popularity. Festivals and religious celebrations offer spectacular insights to centuries of untainted culture that could only exist here in Bhutan.
