Bhutan Introductory Tour

Thimpu and Paro are two cities of the mysterious Himalayan kingdom, Bhutan. Explore these cities and open your window of introduction to the natural and cultural wealth of the entire nation. These two cities showcase the trademark monuments, landscape and culture of Bhutan: majestic monasteries built on the top of hills; vibrant Buddhist culture in the cities; hills, valleys and mountains seen during the drive and, of course, the pleasing panorama to be had from the hilltops.

At the end of the tour, you will find that you have missed only a little about this secluded, shy nation tucked in the southern lap of the Himalayas. Leaving aside the adventure to be had from the likes of Chomolhari Base Camp trek and the first hand experience of the kingdom’s rural areas, this city tour very much offers the representative scenes, diversity of landscapes as well the nation’s well-preserved religious and cultural heritage. Just drop into Paro from Kathmandu with 4 days at your disposal—you will forget how that time has passed.

Day 2: Paro Exploration including the visit of Ta Dzong and Taktsang Monastery
Tourists going to Paro do not fail to visit Ta Dzong, the national museum of Bhutan. It displays all sorts of art works and artifacts, displaying the proud cultural heritage of Bhutan. These Dzongs are typical monuments in Bhutan, built in the past as military barracks and fortresses, which now serve as monasteries attracting large number of tourists. One of the highlights of today’s visit is Taktsang monastery, built in a hilltop with excellent views around. It is one of the most ornate and the holiest of the monasteries in Bhutan, with legends linking it to Guru Rimpoche, one of the highest Buddhist spiritual authorities from the past. We visit this monastery in the morning, before visiting Ta Dzongs and other Dzongs near around Paro.

We drive from Paro to Thimpu through beautiful landscapes. Thimpu is the capital city of Bhutan with a smattering of ornately beautiful monasteries and art schools.

This will be evident when you make a tour through Thimpu.
