Itinerary

 

1st day: Paro-Thimphu

In the morning, take the spectacular flight of Druk Air to Paro, from which you can see the Everest and other Himalayan peaks (flights from Delhi and Kathmandu). On arrival, welcome by local guide and transfer to Thimphu.

2nd day: Thimphu

Discover the charming capital. You will visit the major sights in Thimphu ① such as the venerated Memorial Chorten ② and the stunning Tashichho Dzong. Stroll around the local market where farmers from across the country sell their products.

3rd day: Thimphu-Punakha

Travel to Punakha where you will explore its impressive Dzong, for many the most beautiful in the country. On the way you stop in the Dochula pass to visit the Druk Wangyal Chortens ③ and, in clear days, for stunning views of the Himalayas.

4th day: Punakha-Paro

Before heading back to Paro, we stop at Chimi Lhakhang. Located in the center of the valley and over a hill, and surrounded by beautiful rice fields, Chimi Lhakhang is one of the country's most sacred temples ④. Once in Paro there will be some time to do the final shopping, visit the dzong or simply rest to be ready for the climb to Tiger’s Nest the day after.

5th day: Paro

Without a doubt one of the most stunning constructions in the world, Taktshang or the Tiger’s Nest is simply breathtaking ⑤. Taktshang is miraculously perched on the side of a sheer cliff 900 metres about the floor of Paro valley. The strenuous hike is more than compensated with the views.

6th day: Paro

Morning flight from Paro to your next destination.
