The Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan is a land of high mountains and deep valleys where compassion and wisdom are the benchmark against which all things are measured. Welcometo Bhutan, Country of ‘Gross National Happiness’.

  1. Day 1: Welcome to Bhutan, Upon arrival, you will be greeted by your guide and driver and ferried to Bhutan’s capital Thimphu, travelling through spectacular countryside. En-route to Thimphu you will have the luxury of seeing many houses and buildings which are all painted and constructed in traditional Bhutanese style. On arrival in Thimphu, you will check-in to your hotel and proceed for lunch. Enjoy the day exploring Thimphu, with options to visit the Golden Buddha, with a bonus of sensational valley views, the National Memorial Stupa. FIve minutes drive from stupa you will visit Buddha Point (largest Buddha Dhordenma statue), followed by Takin Preservation Park and finally visit the Tashichodzong Fortress. The day will end with an overnight stay in Thimphu
  2. Day2: After breakfast, we will hike to Chagri Monastery. In about an hour you will reach the monastery. Chagri was built high on the slope in 1619 by Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal as his first monastery in Bhutan and after the visit you will drive back to lunch in town. After lunch leisure walk in town and watch Bhutanese national game archery. Overnight at hotel in Thimphu.
  3. Day3: Thimphu_Punakha Depart from Thimphu and continue towards Punakha. Drive by Dochula Pass and stop for sights of Druk Wangyal Chortens which was commissioned by Her Majesty the Queen Mother, Ashi Dorji Wangmo Wangchuck to commemorate the victory over the Indian militants and to liberate the souls of the lives lost. Then, stop at Sobsokha Village and take a stroll through agricultural fields to Chimi Lhakhang, a pilgrimage site for childless couple or to seek protection for children. Then, visit Punakha Dzong, situated strategically at the junction of the Pho Chu and Mo Chu rivers. Thereafter, walk along the 160 metres Pho Chhu Suspension Bridge, giving you a spectacular view of Punakha Dzong and the Pho Chhu Valley. Overnight at hotel in Punakha.
  4. Day4: Punakha After breakfast we especially recommend you to travel northwards up the Punakha valley and take a fascinating hike through fields of vegetables and tiny hamlets to Khamsum Yulley Namgyel Chorten. This Chorten holds very special significance as it was consecrated in 1999 and dedicated to the protection of the former Crown Prince – today’s current King, Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck. After returning back we will have a picnic lunch by the side of Mochhu river and after lunch we will visit Walakha Nuns University. You will be spending the night in Punakha
  5. Day5: Punakha-Paro After breakfast, we will leave Punakha and proceed to Paro Valley. Once again we will pass Dochu La, and arrive in Paro town in time for lunch. This afternoon you can look forward to enjoying an orientation tour of the major features in Paro town including Paro Dzong with its cantilever bridge. In Paro, you are highly recommended to take a leisure stroll along the main street that offer not only excellent picture of things but also, good shopping for jewellery and handicrafts. Alternatively, your guide can arrange a hike in the valley to suit your fitness & time frame. That night, you will stayover in Paro.
  6. Day 6: Tiger’s Nest You are given a choice to opt for a 2 hour round trip hike to the monastery’s viewpoint, or a longer 4-hour hike into the Monastery itself. Tiger’s Nest clings impossibly to a cliff of rock at over 1000 metres above the valley floor and where Guru Rinpoche flew on the back of a tigress to subdue the local demons followed by 3 months of meditation in a cave still visible in the monastery. In 1998, the monastery was seriously damaged by a fire and has been painstakingly reconstructed back to its original condition and consecrated by the 4th King in 2005. If time permits, you will visit Kyichu Lhakhang – one of Bhutan’s oldest and most beautiful temple that boast of an orange tree that perpetually bears fruit followed by a visit to the old ruined fortress of the Drugyel Dzong (14km from Paro). This is the historical site of the Fort of Drukpa Victory, from which the Bhutanese used to repel the Tibetan invaders again and again. On a good day, the 7314 meters snow domed peak of sacred Mt. Chomolhari can be seen from here. Your last night will be spent in Paro.
  7. Day 7: Departure Today you will bid fond farewell to this beautiful Himalayan country and take a flight back to your country. We hope by now you would have made some friends and take beautiful memories of Bhutan! And we look forward to seeing you again in this unforgettable land of endless happiness. Tashi Delek!
