3 Hours Before Flight Time
All our hotels are of 3 star for this tour.
Bhutan flights are one of the most spectacular Himalayan flight experiences. Only a few pilots have been trained to land on the Paro airport’s diminutive runway. The visa process takes only a few minutes once you arrive at the airport, and our company’s crew will await you there and welcome you. The journey to Thimphu takes one hour.
Having arrived at the Hotel, we will transport you to the “Simply Bhutan” Museum, where you will be greeted with a traditional dance performed by Bhutanese girls dressed in traditional garb. The museum allows visitors to try archery and learn about the daily lives of Bhutanese people. The museum is created in such a way that it reflects Bhutanese life, showing them going about their daily routines. In addition, Thimphu town is a great place to unwind in the evening and relax.
Punakha was the ancient capital of Bhutan until Thimphu took its position in 1967. Punakha is 80 kilometers from Thimphu and considerably warmer. On the way, stop at Dochulaa Pass, where 108 tiny stupas honor dead soldiers from the 2003 conflict. On a clear day, the Himalayan range may be seen.
After a short journey, you will arrive at Punakha Dzong, where the first King of Bhutan, Sir Ugyen Wangchuck, was crowned. When visiting the magnificent Dzong, one must first cross the Mochhu River through a suspension bridge, which has since been replaced by a typical cantilever bridge. The bridge leads to a three-step wooden stairway that leads to the Dzong’s massive entrance door. Punakha town in the evening.
Punakha to Paro is a three-hour journey via Thimphu. Visit the Drugyel Dzong in Paro, which was recently rebuilt after being devastated by fire. On the way back, stop by Emperor Songtsen Gampo’s 8th-century Tibetan Kichu monastery. It is one of the 108 border-taming temples that he constructed. Padmasambhava visited the temple in the eighth century, and it is claimed that he hid numerous spiritual treasures there. We’ll go to the farmhouse if time allows and then enjoy an overnight stay in a hotel.
The Tiger’s Nest Monastery is located 10 miles north of Paro (20 minutes by car), making Paro the perfect home base when making this visit.
The hike takes between 3 to 5 hours depending on your pace. Some parts are quite steep so go slow and be sure of your footing – especially when you make the return trip downhill which can be quite slippery. The hike is about 6 km (4 miles) in length round trip. In the afternoon visit Paro town and over night at Farm House.
