Tour Detail

Day 01: Arrival & Transfer to Thimphu (1.5 hour drive from Paro airport)

As your Druk Air flight weaves through the valley, arrival in Bhutan is like no other. As you touch down, keep your camera at the ready, as we have noticed how passengers slowly disembark and then stand on the tarmac totally bewildered. As you clear the Immigration check, please make your way to the baggage delivery area and here you will meet your Guide for the first time.  The transfer to Thimphu is approximately 1 ½ hours and upon arrival and after settling in; you will visit Kuensel Phodrang, (Buddha Point) is another place from where one can get a complete view of the town of Thimphu. The point has the largest statue of the Buddha. Later you will have a choice of National Memorial Chorten, National Library and private weaving center to visit, and perhaps time to stroll the Main Street for some interesting Himalayan artifacts or textiles. (Overnight at Thimphu)

 

 

 

Day 2: Tour of Thimphu

This morning you will head to the north end of the valley to view Trashi Chhoe Dzong, the seat of Bhutan’s government and Royal offices, and pay a visit to Zilukha nunnery. At the head of the valley, should you wish to stretch your legs; a short hike will take you to Cheri Goemba, the monastery where the first monastic body was established in the Kingdom. Back in town you should be able to visit a few of the capital’s cottage industries ranging from traditional paper making to hand rolled incense.

Day 03: Transfer to Paro (1.5 hour drive from Thimphu)

Today you will further explore Thimphu valley and it will be time for you to transfer to Paro Valley. Here, you could visit the National Museum where an intriguing collection of artefacts provide a wonderful introduction to the rich culture and heritage of the Kingdom. Just a short walk downhill lays the dominating Paro Dzong, a fine example of Bhutanese historic architecture. From the Dzong, the tour crosses Nyamai Zampa, a traditional cantilever bridge, and guests are then driven to the town temple, built in 1525, to view ancient wall paintings. After lunch you can visit the auspicious Kichu Lhakhang, a sacred monument pinning down the left foot of a treacherous ogress. This is one of the oldest temples in Bhutan dating back to the 7th century. In the evening, there is an opportunity for a quick stroll to the nearby Drukgyel Dzong ruins, a visit to some of the valley’s oldest and holiest religious monuments or a ramble down Paro’s main street.
