Day 1,Arrive Paro

On arrival we meet you at Paro International Airport after clearing the immigration and customs formalities and transfer to your hotel in Thimphu for check-in. Flying into Paro is not just to connect Bhutan but also get to enjoy the breathtaking views of the Himalayan ranges, including Mt. Everest (8848m/29028ft), Mt. Kanchenjunga (8586m/28169ft) and Mt. Gangkar Puensum (7570m/24,836ft). You will be driven (54-km) for an hour to Thimphu, the capital of Bhutan. Bhutan’s capital is not a concrete jungle that you see in other parts of the world. Thimphu, at an altitude of 2300m, is set in a lovely rural valley with beautiful natural scenery on all sides and buildings built in the traditional Bhutanese style without traffic lights. You’ll still find the police directing traffic with an intricate ballet of hand signals at the main intersections. Afterwards visit Tashichhodzong that houses some ministries, the office and throne room of His Majesty the King and the Central Monk Body. Tonight enjoy a welcome drink and dinner with BGT. Overnight in Thimphu.

Day 2,Thimphu

Today you explore the best of Thimphu city, home to approximately 138,736 inhabitants. Thimphu is a small city but has many attractive places. We begin at the National Memorial Chorten (stupa), built in memory of The King Jigme Dorji Wangchuk. Another must see place to tick off on your list is Kuenselphodrang (the largest 169ft Buddha Dordenma statue in the world). Our next stop is at the National Institute for Zorig Chusum (Painting School) where the students learn the 13 traditional arts and crafts of Bhutan. Visit the nearby Folk Heritage Museum, housed in the 19th century traditional house showcasing the Bhutanese traditional lifestyle of a genteel family in the olden days. Later visit the National Textile Museum, which is part of the Royal Textile Academy of Bhutan, a conservation centre devoted to the preservation and restoration of the Bhutanese textiles. The evening is at leisure – so why not stroll in the streets of Thimphu city and its stunning surroundings? Overnight in Thimphu.

Day 3,Moving to Punakha

After breakfast you’ll be driven to Punakha (71-km) around 3 hours, the old capital of Bhutan until 1955. Punakha, at an elevation of 1350m, has temperate climate. Head out of the city and travel approximately 45 minute to Tashigang Gonpa in Hongtsho en route, just outside of Thimphu. Venture into the most picturesque hike to the Lungchutse Gonpa. The Lungchutse hike (3-4 hour) takes you through a diverse forest of hemlock, rhododendrons and junipers until you reach the temple on the ridge. Weather permitting, you’re rewarded with all major mountains of Bhutan including Jomolhari (7314m), Kang Bum (6494m), Gangchhenta (6784m), Masang Gang (7194m), Tsenda Kang (6,994m), Teri Kang (7304m), Jejekangphu Gang (7190m), Kangphu Gang (7212m), Zongpgu Gang (7,094m) and Gangkar Puensum (7,570m). Behind these major mountains lie the Tibetan plateaus. Continue on to the trail descending to the Druk Wangyal Chortens (108 stupas), built on the crest of Dochula Pass at 3050m. After lunch enjoy a scenic drive as you continue your journey to Punakha and Wangdue Phodrang. Arriving in Punakha, visit the Chimi Lhakhang Temple, nestled on a round hillock near a village called Sopsokha, built in 1499 by Saint Drukpa Kinley (known as the Divine Madman). The temple is known to the English-speaking world as “The Fertility Temple.” Legend has it that the childless couples wishing to have a baby from across Bhutan and occasionally from overseas are blessed with a child after visiting the temple. Overnight in Punakha.

Day 4,Punakha

This morning enjoy a short hike to the fascinating temple (Khamsum Yulley Namgyal Chorten) built by the Queen Mother Ashi Tshering Yangdon Wangchuk. It is majestically located on a strategic ridge overlooking terraced fields and countryside of the Punakha valley. Take an easy stroll, crossing a suspension bridge and walk through rice fields before climbing a moderately inclined trail surrounded by pine trees. It takes about 1 hour from the parking to hike up, and 30 minutes to hike down. Later visit the Punakha Dzong, which is strategically located at the confluence of the Phochhu (male) and Mochhu (female) Rivers. Your tour continues to the Wangdue Phodrang Dzong under reconstruction, where the fortress-like building was gutted in a fire in 2012. Our final stop of the day is at the charming Rinchengang village, the important cultural site identified by the Department of Culture. You have plenty of time to relax or explore the Punakha–Wangdue Phodrang valley at your own way. Overnight in Punakha.

Day 5,Back to Paro

Today we head back to Paro for the 4 hours drive, pausing en route at the Dochula Pass at 3050m. Paro is the home to the famous Paro Taktshang (also known as Tiger’s Nest), National Museum, Drukair, and Bhutan Airlines. Later you’ll have time to visit the Ta Dzong (ancient watchtower), which now houses the National Museum of Bhutan, and continue down to the Paro Dzong, built-in 1644 by Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal. The evening is at leisure to explore the Paro town or visit a local farmhouse to drink tea with the farmer and his family, allowing you to experience the traditional Bhutanese village life. Overnight in Paro.

Day 6,Hike to Tiger’s Nest

Today is a real highlight as you take a short excursion to Paro Taktshang Monastery (Tiger’s Nest) at 2950m. The monastery is one of the most revered places of pilgrimage in Bhutan. No visit to Bhutan would be complete without a trip to Taktshang. It is stunning in its beauty and location. The monastery is perched on the edge of a steep cliff, 900m above the Paro floor valley. The hike (4-km) starts at the base of the mountain from the road at Ramthangkha, 12-km from the Paro town. Enjoy walking around 4-5 hours to do the round trip hike plus an hour to tour the monastery on a comfortable pace. The well maintained trails are wide, uphill the entire way but not overly steep, wind through beautiful pine forest, trees festooned with Spanish moss and fluttering prayer flags. Gentle horse/pony rides are available for transport halfway up the trail, where you will be treated to a stunning viewpoint of the monastery clinging to the cliff wall. Overnight in Paro.
