This 6 Nights 7 Days Bhutan Tour gives you a personal introduction of the last Himalayan Kingdom often also called the ‘The last Shangri La’.
The carbon neutral Buddhist country has some of the oldest Dzongs, monasteries, and temples and jaw-droppingly beautiful Himalayan landscapes.
As 70 percent of the country is covered in forests, Bhutan has abundant flora and fauna, which makes it a great escape for nature lovers.
In our 6 Nights and 7 Days Bhutan Tour, you become familiar with both the cultural and natural parts of Bhutan. We kick off the tour with a flight from Kathmandu to Paro and a drive to Thimphu.
Thimphu, Bhutan’s capital city is thriving with uniqueness. The rise of technology and modernization sits like a poetic contrast in this centuries old traditionally clad small town. Whether it is the smartphone-carrying Buddhist monks or the huge penis symbols hung outside houses for luck, Thimphu is a truly intriguing destination. It is also among a couple of places in Bhutan where you will find western style night clubs, cafes, bars and restaurants.
We visit the Chagri Monastery, National Memorial Chorten, Mini Zoo, the National Library and the Sangaygang View Point among others while in Thimphu.
Next highlight is the Punakha Valley. The drive from Thimphu to Punakha valley is a delight in itself. We cross the Dochu La ( pass) and drive across lush, balmy Himalayan landscapes of the valley, and visit a famous fertility temple enroute Punakha.
While in the Punakha valley, we visit the Khamsum Yulley Namgyal Chorten and Punakha Dzong. These historical sites are surrounded with extraordinary beauty- the chorten sits on a hillock and the Dzong lies between two rivers.
For our final sightseeing/hiking adventure, we drive back to Paro Valley. Here we hike to the most famous landmark in Bhutan- Taktsang Monastery or the Tiger’s Nest. We visit a couple of beautiful Dzongs later in the afternoon and conclude the day.
We will enjoy the weekend market in Thimphu and Paro, if we are there during the weekend. Otherwise, we will visit souvenir shops and other local markets for handicrafts and all sorts of local products.
