Dzongkha

Learn Dzongkha and unlock the wonders of the Kingdom in the clouds. The national language of Bhutan, Dzongkha literally means “the language of the fortresses.” Steeped in Buddhist tradition, towering monasteries dot Bhutan’s landscape in this remote corner of the Himalaya. Trek to the sacred Tiger’s Nest (Paro Taktsang) monastery or wind down with a hot stone bath overlooking the snowcapped peaks and sweeping forests so highly revered by the Ngalop people. In Thimphu, shop at the city’s weekend market or catch an archery match with the locals. In a land where Gross National Happiness takes precedence, there’s so much to love about Bhutan.
