Wow, A member from Bhutan! (Welcome to the Forum)

Hi Suwa,

Do you live in Bhutan now? I was there in Jan. 1998 (over 7 years ago), as you already know its a wonderful country!

I was wondering how its changed in the last 7-8 years. When i was there, there was NO TV, very few cars (I think the guide told me there was only 1 traffic light in the entire country). No internet cafes or much internet access at all.

What's its like now? (TV?, what videos are available?, do people now have comuters with internet in their homes?, etc..).

Is it possible to travel overland from Myanmar to Bhutan ?

4. Posted by Travel100 (Travel Guru 1556 posts) 11y

Bhutan doesn't border Myanmar, so you'd need to travel through NE India. That would certainly be an adventure.

I really have no idea if its possible but I think that "Manus National Park" shares both Bhutan and NE India so Maybe its possible to cross while in the park. Then a person would have to cross through some real remore parts of India AND get into Myanmar through Nagaland or somewhere up there.

I'd be surprised if it is possible to make it from Bhutan to Myanmar but I'd also like to know because that would be a great trip!

"Some of the rarest wildlife on the planet can be found in India's national parks, such as the golden langur, the world's rarest monkey. Golden langurs can be found only in a small patch of forest on the Manas River, which forms the border between the Manas Wildlife Sanctuary in Bhutan and the Manas National Park in India."

hi ,

well we still dont have traffic lights and no macdonalds. It still has its uniqueness and untouched beauty.

Glad to see a Bhutan native here in the forum. I find that there's very little info about the country on the internet. (which can be a good thing or a bad thing) I was watching a video on Sarawak earlier and serendipitously came across a Bhutan one. Follow the link if u wanna watch it. HERE

Note: IE users have to download a software from the site in order to watch it.(subjected to ads unless u delete the program.not recommended) I tried using Firefox and was able to circumvent it.

Aside to Travel100: were u the one who posted a thread on Ladakh afew weeks back? Anyway the same link brings u to a short video on Ladakh.WHOA.

I've been to Bhutan. Basically the government limits the amount of tourists by making it an expensive place to visit. You can't just show up, you must make arrangements in advance so it can cost a lot per day. You end up spending a certain amount every day but it's not "a fee".

Its a wonderful, amazing place.

Tell me about Ladakh, that's the place I most want to go in the entire World right now.

How did you get there?

Did you just get to Leh and then make travel arrangements or did you make some arrangements in advance?

How long did you stay in Ladakh?

and which monestaries, etc. did you visit?

Any Information on Ladakh would be great!
