Dawa in Bhutan was a very decent, honourable, kind and funny man - excellent. Rekha in Delhi was the most gentle, knowledgable and couteous lady - excellent.

Set in the heart of the Thimphu Valley, the Taj Tashi, is a gateway to a land steeped in mythology and magic. The mountain kingdom of Bhutan remains one of the old world's last few strongholds as yet unspoilt by civilization. In the isolation of the Himalayan heights, Bhutan's ancient Mahayana Buddhism continues richly intact to this day, and permeates every aspect of Bhutanese life and art.
In keeping with the enchanting surroundings, the hotel is a blend of Bhutan's Dzong architecture and modern design. The rooms are adorned with swirls of hand-painted murals of clouds - a recurring motif in Bhutanese art - and take in sweeping views of the surrounding mountains. Elegant, expansive and luxuriously appointed, the rooms, in the manner of all Taj Hotels, pamper guests with the finest amenities. Suites, on the other hand, feature distinctive canopy beds, walk-in closets and home theatre systems. Natural lighting emphasizes large, well laid-out bathrooms featuring standalone Christina bathtubs.
Best time to be there
Bhutan offers warm days and cool nights all year round. October and November are arguably the best months, when the monsoon has passed and the skies are clear for mountain photography. The spring months of March, April and May are best for the flora, but it can be stormy as the monsoon builds up for July-September.
