About Thimpu

The Thimphu is a capital and the largest city of Bhutan. It is a situated in central in the western central part of Bhutan and the surrounding valley, sprawling up a hillside on the west bank of the Thimphu chhu. Several north-south streets run through the town, and numerous smaller streets weave their way uphill to government. The first vehicle appeared in Thimphu in 1962 and the town remained very rural until the late 1970s. It is also often said that that Thimphu is only world capital without traffic light. For the visitor Thimphu offers the best opportunity to briefly break away from the tour itinerary. In addition to its traditional Buddhist sights and attractions, it offers cafes, bars, nightclubs and restaurants.
