Bhutan or The Land Of The Thunder Dragon is rich and abundant in its culture, values, heritage and is blessed with heavenly beauty with all of them being dispersed across what are known as Dzongkhags or districts. One of the largest of these districts is known as Wangdue Phodrang. The reason why this region is different vis-a-vis others is that in being such a large district, it is very diverse in terms of housing sub-tropical forests in the south to cold snowy areas in the north. This allows it to be the host of numerous plant and animal species. Plants like orchids, Rhododendrons,Blue Poppy and rare animals like the Red Panda, snow leopard, Blue Sheep and Black Bear can be found in this district. It also offers plenty of scope for visiting monasteries and temples for the spiritually inclined soul. There are also hikes and treks with beautiful views to suit the nature-lover's tastes as well. A particularly beautiful place to visit in Wangdue Phodrang would be Phobjikha Valley, which is one of the few glacial valleys in the country and is abound in natural beauty.
