appropriate dress-up wear in Bhutan?

Jump to last reply

I am traveling to Sikkim and Bhutan in the fall. The trip people have told us to bring a skirt (for temples and such) and also something dressy to wear in case of ceremonies or formal events. The implication was to bring an actual dress.

I am very limited on luggage, and almost never wear dresses anyway. Would like to pack a pair of dressy black knit pants and a colorful dressy tunic top in lightweight fabric, but am wondering if this is appropriate for such events in this part of the world?

We are not getting very detailed direction from those sponsoring the trip.

Any advice would be appreciated.
