The world seems to have taken the Year of the Sheep by the horns. And the ‘Land of the Thunder Dragon’ isn’t going to be left far behind. As part of the 60th birth an­niversary celebrations of the fourth king of Bhutan, His Majesty Jigme Singye Wangchuck, the country has declared 2015 ‘Visit Bhutan Year’. Celebrations include a host of activities, cultural events, festivals and special packages lined up through the year. If you’re an adrenaline junkie, you will enjoy ‘Into the Dragon’s Belly’, a motorbike tour of­fered by Bhutan Tusk Motorcycle Tours that starts in the spectacular Paro Val­ley, and ends with a hike up to Taktsang (Tiger’s nest) monastery. Those who want a more leisurely vacation can opt for ‘The Spirit Kingdom’, a spirituality and wellness tour organised by Amulet Luxury Travel Bhutan that will take you around the temples and monasteries, as well as give you enough time to unwind in hot-stone baths, get luxurious mas­sages and take part in yoga sessions. And those who want to be a part of the grandest of all the celebrations should visit Thimphu on November 11, when the year-long celebrations will come to an end with a variety of cultural programs at Changlimithang Stadium.
