About the Tour

Day 1.  Arrive at Paro and Proceed to Thimphu (55 kms | 1hours)

Once you arrive in Paro, you will be received by your Tours representative and guide who will transfer you to your hotel in Thimphu.

Thimphu: Capital to the tiny Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan, Thimphu is one of the smallest capitals in the world. For most part of its history, Bhutan has tried consciously to save its culture from the influences of the western world. It is not that modernity has not reached this region, but is being introduced in a phased and balanced manner that is unheard of at any place in the world. All these make Thimphu and other parts of the country a unique destination.

Upon arrival, proceed for check-in at your hotel. After taking rest for some time take a tour of the town.Trashi Chhoe Dzong: Also called Fortress of the Glorious Religion, it is situated north of the city on the west bank of the Wang Chhu. The Dzong was the site of the lavish formal coronation of the fifth King in 2008 and hosts the city’s biggest annual bash, the colorful tsechu festivities. National Library: Housing an extensive collection of priceless Buddhist manuscripts. Spend rest of the evening at leisure.

Overnight in Thimphu Hotel

Day 2. Sightseeing in Thimphu

After breakfast, proceed for sightseeing. Buddha View Point: Another place from where you can get a good overview of the Thimphu valley is from the Buddha Point (Kuensel Phodrang). 

You can pay your obeisance and offer prayers to the Buddha Statue, the largest in the country and then walk around and take a glimpse of the valley. Simtokha Dzong: The monastery was built in 1627 by Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal. It houses the Institute for Language and Cultural Studies. The carvings behind the prayer wheel in the courtyard are a major attraction of this temple. Memorial Chorten: It is also known as the Thimphu Chorten, and is located on Doeboom Lam in the southern-central part of the city near the main roundabout and Indian military hospital.

Takin Mini Zoo: The Takin is the national animal of Bhutan, and looks like a cross between a cow and a goat. Legend has it that the animal was created by the great Buddhist yogi, Drupa Kunley, and it can be found only in Bhutan and nearby areas. In the evening free time to explore Thimphu City.

 Overnight in Thimphu Hotel

 
Day 3.Thimphu - Punakha (75 kms | 3 hours)

After having breakfast, check-out of the hotel and proceed to Punakha. On the way to Punakha you will go through the Dochula Pass.

Stop at Dochula View Point which is the first stop after leaving Thimphu. About 45 minutes from Thimphu, it offers visitors their first glimpse of the Himalayan range. The road to Punakha branches left and curls its way down to the relatively low lands of the Punakha valley. On arrival, check-in at the hotel. Later, go for sightseeing.

Punakha Dzong: Majestically standing on an island between the confluence of the Pho Chhu and Mo Chhu rivers, the city's dzong is one of the most photogenic of all Bhutan's ancient fortresses, and you will see pictures of it hanging in hotels and restaurants throughout the country. The dzong is joined to the mainland by an arched wooden bridge and contains many precious relics from the days when successive kings reined the kingdom from this valley. In the evening, return to your hotel and enjoy a comfortable overnight stay.

Overnight in Punakha  Hotel .

Day 4.Punakha – Paro (160 kms | 5 hours)

After breakfast this morning, check-out of the hotel and proceed to Paro. On the way visit Chimi Lhakhang (Fertility Temple): Situated on a hillock in the centre of the valley below Metshina is the yellow-roofed Chimi Lhakhang, built in 1499 by the cousin of Lama Drukpa Kunley in his honour after he subdued the demoness of the nearby Dochu La with his ‘magic thunderbolt of wisdom’. A wooden effigy of the lama’s thunderbolt is preserved in the lhakhang and childless women go to the temple to receive blessings from the saint. It’s a pleasant 20-minute walk across fields from the road at Sopsokha to the temple. You will cross an archery ground before making a short climb to the temple. Upon arrival in Paro, check-in at the hotel. 

In the evening free time to explore paro town.

Overnight in In Paro 

DAY 5 -  ‘Tiger's Nest’

Take a day walk to the ‘Tiger's Nest’, the sacred Taktshang monastery which clings to the rock face 900 metres above the valley floor. Guru Rinpoche is said to have flown to the site riding on a tigress.  He subsequently meditated here for three months.  It is one of Bhutan’s most holy sites and draws pilgrims not only from Bhutan but also from neighbouring Buddhist countries.  

You can have lunch at the Taktshang cafeteria from where you get a spectacular view of the monastery. On the way back you can visit the ruined Drukgyel Dzong (fortress of victory), constructed to commemorate the victory over Tibetan invaders in 1644 and destroyed by a butter lamp fire in 1951.  Nearby you can also visit the 7th century Kyichu Lhakhang, a temple of historical significance and one of the most sacred shrines in Bhutan.

If  you are not able to Hike then you can Visit Bhutan’s most impressive and well known Dzong, perhaps the finest example of Bhutanese architecture you will see.

Rinpung Dzong: It is a fortress-monastery that serves both as a civil administrative center and as a monastic home for a community of monks. Most dzongs were built in the mid-1600s to protect the inhabited valleys from invasion by Tibet. The Paro Dzong was started in 1644 on the order of Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal, the unifier of modern day Bhutan. Unlike most of the Dzongs in Bhutan, it survived the massive 1897 earthquake mostly unscathed, though it was damaged by fire in 1907. National Museum of Paro: Housed inside the revamped Ta-dzong building in Paro, National Museum of Bhutan is a cultural museum that has put on display the antique items gathered from different parts of the country.


Spend the evening at leisure wandering around Paro town for some souvenir shopping and to get a feel of the city.
