We will drive through the breathtaking Paro valley for some sightseeing before we head towards Thimphu in the late afternoon.

Day 01 PARO-THIMPHU

National Museum (Paro Ta Dzong).

Bhutan’s one and only museum houses the ancient treasures of the kingdom. These artifacts represent Bhutanese culture and values, and are the source of the Bhutanese identity. Nothing introduces Bhutan better to the outsiders than a visit to this museum.

Paro or Rinpung Dzong is a huge fortress in Bhutan. It is the venue of the annual Paro festival which attracts the highest number of tourist during the season. The fortress houses the Monastic Body and administrative offices of Paro District. Some scenes of the film “Little Buddha” by Hollywood Director Bernardo Bertolucci were shot in this fortress.

We head to Thimphu in the latter part of the afternoon, arriving in time for a delicious traditional Bhutanese meal, and after-dinner shopping in the center of town.

DAY 02 THIMPHU-PUNAKHA

Our day begins pretty early as we head towards Punakha, a place once famed as the ancient capital of Bhutan and, even today, houses the national treasures of the kingdom.

On the way, we will be seeing Semtokha Dzong (Palace-fortress) which was built in 1627 and is the oldest in Bhutan. Thereafter, our next stopover will be at Dochula where 108 nos. of stupas are built by Queen mother Ashi Dorji Wangmo Wangchuck, a pass that is located at an altitude of 3,100m is perhaps the only spot where one can see the Eastern Himalayas in a spectacular 360 degrees.

It is here that a grand new festival has been introduced besides which the place is known for a plethora or flora and fauna.

Our next stopover will be at the Temple of Fertility, located at amid rice fields at the bank of Punatshangchhu River. This ancient temple was built to honor “Divine Mad Man” – Drukpa Kuenley – whose crazy teachings bordered on the burlesque including phallic worship. Today, the temple is much sought after by barren couples all over the world for its power to grant fertility.

This is a great spot to enjoy an outdoor picnic lunch in the midst of nature.

Our most climatic part of the day, however, is the visit to Punakha Dzong – the grand ancient capital – which is considered the most beautiful architectural specimen from Bhutan. The awe-inspiring complex which appears like a gigantic ship in the midst of an ocean, flanked as it is by two rivers on either sides, it is the home of Bhutan’s spirituality. It is here that Bhutan’s kings are crowned and the head of Buddhist clergy anointed.

DAY 03 PUNAKHA-THIMPHU-PARO

We head back to Paro today. The 4 hour drive will take us through Wangiduephodrang district where a majestic fortress stood just 3 years ago. We will scour the place en route and gradually climb up to Dochula pass via paddy fields, quaint farm houses, subtropical forests – the habitat of the White-Bellied Heron( world’s most endangered bird), Rhododendron forests(Bhutan has 48 species), and then beautiful alpine flowers .

We will be passing through the capital city for the final time before descending to the expansive Paro valley, considered to be Bhutan’s spiritual heartland.

After lunch in Paro town, we have last minute shopping if interested.

On the way to hotel, we will visit Kyichu Lhakhang, an ancient Himalayan Buddhist monastery, built in the 7th century by Tibetan Emperor Songtshen Gyampo to spread the teachings of Buddha. It is believed that many spiritual treasures were hidden at the site of the temple and later revealed Great Buddhist Teachers.

DAY 04 PARO SIGHTSEEING

We provide two options for Paro leg of our tour.

For those who are deeply spiritual and also love a dash of adventure, we will undertake a 3 hour hike to Taktshang (Tiger’s Lair), the most famous temple in the Himalayan Buddhist world. The temple clings precariously onto a vertical cliff about 1,000m above the Paro Valley floor.

It is here that Guru Padmasambhava, considered to be the second Buddha by the Himalayan

Buddhists, is said to have meditated in the 8th century after having flown there on the back of a ferocious tigress.

As a second option, we will drive for one and a half hours to Chelela pass (3,988m), the highest point reached by road in Bhutan. Chelela is known for its spectacular natural beauty and has hundreds of species of Alpine flowers and rare and exotic birds like the Himalayan Monal, Khalij Pheasant and Satyr Tragopan. From Chelela, one can also see snow-clad Mt. Jhomolhari (7,300m), the abode of Goddess Remati, and other peaks like Jichu Dra-ke (6,950m).

DAY 05

The return flight can be at 11.00, or at 14.00 or 16.00. We will set this before your arrival to Bhutan, and we will fine-tune your agenda accordingly – for your greatest pleasure.

Thank you for visiting Bhutan, the “Land of the Thunder Dragon”.
