(4 Days / 3 Nights)

(to view the route of this tour on a Map please click here)

Bhutan is an ancient land secluded high in the heart of the vast Himalayas with magical customs and people with deeply held beliefs. Bhutan is a land of Dzongs (fortresses) and monasteries, monks, majestic mountains, unique architectural style, rich heritage and a land of warm-hearted, friendly people. In the Thimphu Paro Tour we visit Bhutan and admire the silence and peace of the Paro valley. The beautiful terraced valley where the medieval town of Paro nestles is home to many of the Bhutan's oldest temples and Dzongs.

Day 01: Arrival in Bhutan (Paro)

Arrive in Paro, the ancient capital city of Bhutan. Upon arrival, you will be received by our Bhutan 's representative and drive through the picturesque Paro valley with its quaint clusters of hamlets amid terraced paddy fields to your hotel. On a clear day, you would be struck by the sight of the 24,000 feet white-domed peak of the sacred Mt. Jhomolhari (Mountain of the goddess Jhomo) that looms overhead. The rest of the day is at leisure to explore the town of Paro and its markets.

Day 02: Paro - Timphu
In the morning we visit Ta Dzong. It is a national museum housed in an ancient watchtower, which has a fine collection of ancient Thangkha paintings, textiles, weapons and other artifacts. Later we take a short drive to the old ruined fortress of Drugyel Dzong or the Fort of Drukpa Victory. It is a historical site from the ramparts of which the Bhutanese rebelled the Tibetan invaders from time to time. Then we visit one of the oldest and most celebrated Dzongs in Bhutan, the Rinpung Dzong, or the Fortress of the Heap of Jewels. In the afternoon we visit the Taktsang Monastery’s viewpoint. Taktsang means the "Tiger's Nest”. This monastery is built around a cave in which Guru Rimpoche (also known as Guru Padmasambhava) meditated. For the local people it is a place of pilgrimage, but for the tourist, a hike to the viewpoint is exhausting, thrilling and mystical. According to the legends, the Guru Rimpoche is said to have flown to the site of the monastery on the back of the tigress from Tibet and meditated in the cave there for three months. In the evening we drive through the spectacular mountain views and peaceful countryside to Thimphu, the modern capital of Bhutan. Thimphu is a small, charming city sandwiched in the heart of the Himalayas. All houses and buildings are painted and constructed in traditional Bhutanese style.

Day 03: Thimphu - Paro
In the morning we visit the National Library, which holds a vast collection of ancient Buddhist manuscripts and the School of Thangkha paintings (The Arts and Crafts School) where you can see young children learning and practicing the ancient art of paintings. Then we visit the Bhutan Arts and Crafts Centre and the Handicrafts Emporium to see the exquisite artistry of traditional crafts and textiles, and wander through the streets for a little shopping. After lunch, we will visit the Memorial Chorten. This memorial was built in 1974 in the memory of the king Jigme Dorji Wangchuck. This memorial exhibits a multi-storied stupa and numerous paintings which provide a rare insight into Buddhist philosophy. In the late evening, drive to Paro.

Day 04: Paro
After having an early breakfast, drive to the airport to board your onward flight.
