Trip Itinerary

    You will fly to Paro with Druk Air. The flight will present stunning views of mountains and hills. Upon arriving at the airport, you will be greeted by one of our representatives. He will drive you to Thimpu, capital of Bhutan and drop you at the hotel. The rest of the day is free for you to rest. Overnight in the hotel.


      After breakfast, you will go on the guided sightseeing tour to Thimpu. The first place you will visit is Tashichhodzong, which is a beautiful medieval fortress. You will see government offices and the king's throne room here. Next, you will visit the National Library where you will get a huge collection of manuscripts. Then tour follows up to  Arts & Crafts School and  Handicrafts Emporium. From here you will drive to Memorial Chorten, built in the memory of Bhutan's third king who is popularly regarded as Father of modern Bhutan. You will end your day with the exotic dinner and stay overnight in the hotel.


         Today, you will drive to Punakha with your guide. You will take a short pause at Dochula pass (3,080m) to see mani wall, chorten, and colorful prayer flags decorated at the highest point of the road. If the weather is clear, you may see amazing views of Masagang (7,158m), Kangphugang (7,170 m ), Zongphugang (7, 060 m ), Jejegangphugang (7,158 m ), Gangkar Puensum (7,570 m), and many other mountains.

        Upon reaching Punakha, you will visit Punakha Dzong, built in 1637. This gompa has a very significant role in the history of Bhutan. Later, you will visit Wangduephodrang, which is widely popular for its slate, bamboo products, and stone carving. 

        Drive from Thimphu  to Punakha: The drive from Thimphu (80 kms) takes about 3
        hours. The road climbs from Thimphu to Dochula pass (3,050m) and descends
        through ever changing forests into the semi-tropical valley of Punakha and Wangdi at
        around 1200m.


           After breakfast, retrace your drive back to Paro. In Paro visit Tiger’s Nest Monastery
          (Taktsang) and Farm House.
           Drive fromThimphu to Paro. The drive from Thimphu to Paro takes less than 1 hour,
          covering total of 65 km. From Thimphu, the western branch of lateral highway from
          Thimphu, runs close to the Wangchu river in the valley floor, through the suburbs
          and villages of Thimphu to arrive at the river confluence of Chuzom, which is also the
          hub of road network going to Paro, Ha, Thimphu and Phuntsholing. From Chuzom,
          it is north-west for about ½ hour, following Pa Chu river upstream, passing
          Tachogang temple on the other side of the river, then through relatively straight
          road, into the villages and farm houses of Paro valley.
          Hike to Taktsang: Drive to north of Paro town for about ½ hr and embark on a trek
          to the famed Taktsang (Tiger’s lair) monastery. Taktsang monastery is located on
          the face of a 1,000m seemingly impossible sheer, vertical cliff, above Paro valley. 
          The trail begins near the Satsam (2650m) and climbs steeply uphill to the Cafeteria
          (2,940m), an area of exposed ridge with panoramic view of Takstang. This takes
          little more then an hour. (Ponies are provided on request to ride up till this
          Cafeteria, but rest of way, including return downhill must be on foot.) You can get a
          good view from the Cafeteria or hike further uphill for another hour or so to the
          temple itself. There are several other temples and sites within the vicinity. Lunch is
          served at the tea house. The return trek to the road head is quite steep downhill,
          where you will be met by the transport.
          Farm House or Village Home: Bhutanese farmhouses are colorful, decorative and
          traditionally built without any nails. Majority of the houses are with three story, first
          floor is utilized for sheltering cattle, second floor for the family to live in and the top
          for storing and drying of foods and fodder for animal. 
          Paro: Paro is one of the most beautiful valleys in the country with Bhutan’s only
          airport located here, among the terraced fields, and elegant farm houses. Willow
          trees line many of the roads, contrasting with bright colors of the fields and the
          most popular and important sites also found within Paro district. Paro town (2,280m)
          is still a small with one main street and less then one hundred small family-run
          shops. The weekend market in Paro is held on Saturdays 


            After having breakfast, you will drive to the airport to fly back to your next destination. Make sure you did not leave any of your belongings at the hotel.
