Thimpu or Thimphu is capital city and one the main attraction of Bhutan trip, this is the only capital in the world without traffic signals. The city located at western part of Bhutan at 7600 ft. above sea level.  There is a strange uniqueness in this city, no one plays horn on the road here. If a person crosses the zebra crossing then the car stops automatically without any signal. Most people are walking around the street in traditional Bhutanese dress (Gho for men & Kira for women). The city itself is a Himalayan hill station but this place is different from Gangtok or Darjeeling in terms of cleanness, rules, beauty & hospitality.
