Paro International Airport.
3 Hours Before Flight Time
3 Star Hotel in twin sharing basis. Single room supplement will be applicable.
When you arrive at Paro International Airport, you will be met with a breath of fresh air and a panoramic view of the Paro valley. Following completion of immigration processes, our representative will greet you and bring you to Thimphu, Bhutan’s beautiful capital, with a stop at the country’s oldest dzong, erected in 1627, along the way, and a stroll through Thimphu town. Following that, you’ll spend your first night in a hotel.
Punakha is Bhutan’s former capital and the winter seat of the national clergy, including the Buddhist head abbot, His Holiness the Je Khenpo. At an elevation of 3100 meters, the route travels via Dochula pass, which features 108 memorial stupas. The pass offers some of the most spectacular vistas of the Himalayan range, including Mt. Masanggang, which stands at 7,158 meters.
Explore Chimi Lhakhang, which honors Lama Drukpa Kuenley, also known as the Divine Madman. The monastery is atop a small hill with a view of the Lobesa Valley. In the evening, you will return to the hotel.
The tour begins with a visit to the magnificent Punakha Dzong, which was built in 1676 and is located between the Pho Chu and Mo Chu rivers. After seeing the Dzong, take a three-hour drive to Paro. Along the way, stop by the Tamchog temple that is dedicated to Thangthong Gyalpo, a 13th-century saint who invented the iron chain bridge that connects Paro and Thimphu. Then you’ll take a tour of Paro Valley, a broad and fertile valley with a historical and modern face. It is the location of one of the kingdom’s oldest and most revered temples.
Bhutan’s most popular temple is Tiger Nest Temple, which is only a short drive from Paro. The hike takes about three hours and covers 8.6 kilometers from the base camp. It is best to start the hike early in order to get the most out of the pinewood forest and the sound of birds chirping. Gyaltse Tenzin Rabgye built the magnificent monastery in 1684, which hovers 900m above the Paro valley on sheer rocks where the tantric Guru meditated in this cave. In the afternoon, visit Taa Dzong, Bhutan’s only museum, and then Paro Dzong, which was built in 1646 and is part of the country’s national ancestry.
