Bhutan: Land of Thunder Dragon

  • Punakha Dzong

  • Chimi Lakhang

  • Tiger's Nest Trek

  • Suspension Bridge

Incredible Bhutan

Bhutan often revered as the "Land of the Thunder Dragon" or 'Druk Yul', is still regarded as one of the last "Shangri-La's" in the Himalayan region because of its remoteness, its spectacular mountain terrain, varied flora and fauna and its unique ancient Buddhist monasteries. This country of rolling hills and towering crags certainly exudes charm. The mountains are magnificent, the forest are dense, prayer flags which flutter along the high ridges, the people are delightful, the air is pure, the architecture inspiring, the religion exciting and the art superb. Take this trip with WOW to see the beautiful valleys, rivers and hills. We would be visiting Thimphu, Punakha, Paro and of course, who could miss the trek to Tiger’s nest!

    Amodhara Hotel or similar
  • Day 2

    Tune into Thimpu

    Today after breakfast we will leave for Thimpu sightseeing. The Chang Gangkha monastery and Buddha Point (Kuensel Phodrang) located here are one of the oldest temples in the valley. The Zilukha nunnery and the textile museum are generous with their history and a walk through their rooms transports you to another time and place. The oldest post office located here allows you to personalize your own stamp and send it across. Head to the market after a day of sightseeing. Overnight stay in Thimphu.

  • Day 3

    Picture perfect Dochula Pass

    After the breakfast, drive to warm valley of Punakha over the most beautiful pass in the country called Dochula pass at 3150m. If the weather permits, we can enjoy a spectacular view of the highest mountains of Bhutan at a sight that stretches almost 180 degrees. After a photo break, we will continue our drive downhill from the pass. En-route we will take awesome walk through the rice field of Mesina to Chimi Lhakhang-Temple of fertility. Overnight in Punakha.

    Meri Puensum Resort or similar
  • Day 4

    The lush green Punakha

    After the breakfast, enjoy the beautiful Punakha valley. We will hike to Khamsum Yulay Namgyal Chorten, which will take about 45 mins to reach the top. Then we will visit Punakha Suspension Bridge. Afternoon visit to Punakha Dzong. The Dzong was named Druk Pungthang Dechen Phodrang (Palace of Great Happiness). Punakha is still the winter residence of Je-Khenpo religious head of Bhutan. Overnight in Punakha.

    Meri Puensum Resort or similar
  • Day 5

    Paro – Gateway to Bhutan

    Make your way to Paro today which is located on the banks of the picturesque river by the same name. Visit the imposing dzong or stupa built here which anchors the town and also the local museum which gives you a sense of Bhutanese history down the ages. Amble through the town on foot in the second half, stop and drink in the views and sample their food at one of the many cafes dotting the street. Overnight stay in Paro.

    Tenziling Resort or similar
  • Day 6

    Breathaking Tiger’s Nest

    Begin your day early as you get ready to trek up to Tiger’s Nest or Takshang Lakhang. The monastery located here is one of the oldest and most beautiful in Bhutan. The roughly 2-3 hour trek takes you through the gorgeous smelling pine forest, past the prayer wheels to the ridge dotted with prayer flags but is a steep climb and you need to be fit to undertake it. Those who do not wish to trek the Tiger’s Nest can drive to the picturesque Chalela Pass and capture some stunning views. Overnight stay in Paro.

    Tenziling Resort or similar
