At almost halfway to Thimphu, you will be taken to a very revered 15th century temple built by the famous iron bridge builder, also a very great yogi of the time. We also see his famous iron bridges still commuted and hanging over dizzying heights over the rivers and steep ravines. Upon reaching the capital city, the sightseeing begins as thus: • Buddha Statue: Supposedly the tallest sitting Buddha in the world • National Memorial Chorten: A monastery built in memory of Third King also the “Father of Modern Bhutan.” • Takin Reserve: A small sanctuary for the national animal of Bhutan, Takin.

Towards the last leg to destination Punakha, en route we will take a small diversion to pay homage at “Temple of Fertility”- Chimi Lhakhang, a 15th century monastery. The valley is quite unique having solid presence of phalluses owing to the stay of a famous and revered propagator of Buddhism in Bhutan. His tales are humorous and at times sexually explicit; it is the Divine Madman’s peculiar way to propagate the teachings of Buddhism. The place is famously hyped as ‘Phallusville’ amongst tourism sphere of Bhutan. As the tour draws to the ancient capital, following are the points of interest: • Punakha Dzong: Built in 1637 by the Founder of Bhutan, the religious fortress is translated as the “Palace of Great Happiness” located at a hillock that has close resemblance to the trunk of a sleeping elephant. • Suspension Bridge: One of the longest bridges in Bhutan.

Bhutan was the most wonderful friendly country. Phuntsho our guide was the best and really looked after us and was very knowlegable in the history while keeping us entertained as well. Tiger’s nest was the highlight, amazing place. The tour Agency Marvellous Bhutan Travel organised the whole tour to perfection even organising my friend’s 40th birthday evening.

We are a family of 5 traveling first time to Bhutan, our youngest family member being 7 years old. Our guide, Phuntsho is a charming, knowledgeable and sensitive young man who is prepared to go the extra mile to make our trip a good one. Sangey, our “grandfatherly” driver is extremely experienced as the mountain roads are not easy to handle. Last but not least, Chokyi – the enterprising one for making all these happen. The cultural performance was both a surprise and a delight! It is our first trip and won’t be our last! Thank you & Tashi Delek!!!!!
