Itinerary

Arrive in Paro. You enjoy the
spectacular scenery of the Himalaya
including Everest prior to landing at Paro.
Here you are met by your leader and
transferred to the capital Thimphu. (D)

The journey begins with a
sightseeing tour of the nation’s capital.
There is much to enjoy including the late
King’s memorial chorten, the traditional
painting school, the nunnery at Tashicho
Dzong and the traditional paper making
industry.
Equally enjoyable is just to wander
through the streets observing the unique
architecture, colourful shops and observe
a culture little changed of the centuries
where men and women still predominantly
wear traditional dress. For this, Bhutan is a
photographers paradise.
You leave Thimphu for Punaka crossing
the high pass Dochu La, where there are
spectacular views of the Himalaya, before
descending to the spectacular Punaka
Dzong a fortified monastery built in 1637
and previously Bhutan’s capital. (B,L,D)
There is much to do in Punaka and we enjoy
optional short walks to explore the villages, temples and monasteries of the valley.
From Punkaka we head back to Paro to
explore the fortified watch tower of Ta
Dzong, now a museum and there is ample
time for exploration of this picturesque town.
The following day you take a short drive for
the pilgrimage to Taktsang – the famous
Tiger’s Nest. This serene monastery that
clings to a steep granite cliff, about 700
metres above the valley floor seems to defy
gravity with its precarious positioning and is
a major highlight of our unique experience in
Bhutan. (B,L,D)

Your journey to Bhutan comes to an
end today. Your guide will escort you to the
airport to bid their farewell for your onward
journey. (B)
