The Tiger's Nest-Bhutan

  • Punakha

  • Buddha Point

  • Paro

  • Thimphu

Happy Kingdom

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!

    Best of Beginnings

    After landing in picturesque Paro, make your way to Thimphu which is the capital of Bhutan and often referred to as its nerve centre. En route, stop and marvel at the Tachogang Lakhang which is one of the oldest iron bridges in all of Bhutan, located just off the Paro-Thimphu highway. The chains and links make this an exciting bridge steeped in history since it was built as far back as the 15th century. You also stop at Chuzom which is the point of confluence of two key rivers of Bhutan. There are several scattered villages en route and while the journey itself is not a history lesson, what it does do is acquaint you with the philosophy of a country that prides itself on being above the gloom, perennially happy and content. Overnight stay in Thimphu. (Altitude: 2334m)

    Amodhara or similar
  • Day 2

    Tune into Thimpu

    Thimphu is many a splendored thing as it struggles to keep pace with all the changes that modern day imposes on it. 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. (Altitude: 2334m)

    Amodhara or similar
  • 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. 108 Druk Wangyel Chortens built over the pass by queen mother in 2003 marks the pass more important and beautiful thus the pass is one the must visit passes in Bhutan. 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. (Altitude 1242m)

    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 which was built in 1637 by Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal. 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. (Altitude 1242m)

    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. This is one of Bhutan’s gateways to the master trek to Tiger’s nest and retains its age-old charm, complete with colorful wooden houses lining the street, rosy checked-children playing peek a boo behind pillars and monks in crimson robes searching for their spot of zen. 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. (at your own cost). Overnight stay in Paro. (Altitude 2200m)

    Tenziling Resort or similar
  • Day 6

    Breathtaking 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. It is also supposed to be the birthplace of Buddhism for the Bhutanese, so a trek is worth your while if you truly want to embrace the spirit of this beautiful nation. 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. This is truly the highlight of your trip as most travel to Bhutan is geared towards this dramatic trek and monastery visit. 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. (Altitude 2200m)

    Tenziling Resort or similar
  • Day 7

    Adios Bhutan!

    Your quota of happiness seems up at this point as you make your way back home from the Paro airport. Bhutan is truly magical and you come away invigorated, humbled and most importantly happy! The perfect way to move forward in life.

  • Right from the word go it was an amazing trip. The very first sight of Bhutan after getting off the plane was a visual treat.The shimmering waters all along our trip from paro to thimpu and the mountains to add to the charm. Bhutan received us with mountains all around , this neat and beautiful country with the lovely people was truly a great visit. The painted houses and the monastery was a perfect back drop for travellers, we visited monastery, trekked through the mountains to reach the tigers nest. I am very impressed that we had trekking for three days, Amid paddy fields enroute to Chimi Lhakhang temple, the divine symbols every where. All the three days trekking was great fun. The last day trek to tigers nest called the Taktsang was I could say a feat of achievement for me. The river rafting was definitely a surprise and we were absolutely thrilled doing it. Words fail when I speak about our dear Kushika so charming and friendly and helpful throughout. The group was absolute fun coming from various places it was magical bonding on the mountains of Bhutan. I should conclude the scenic place, with all the adventures, wonderful group and with our dear wow buddy kushika you can't ask for more. My first trip with wow and it was truly a beautiful experience.

  • The recently concluded trip to Bhutan (16 -22 September '18) by WOW Club was an experience in itself. I would highly recommend it to my friends and family. Not only was the trip well organised, but it was immaculate from the stage of enquiry. Travelling solo for the first time made me explore myself and thanks to WOW for providing women like me with an opportunity to explore onself. The guides, Dhana and Tek, were such warm people that they made me feel at home even in a foreign land. Finally, the travel buddy that went along, Kanika Gupta, though went as a WOW buddy but came back as a friend. Thanks Kanika for being around and making it even more worthwhile.

  • Amazing experience in Bhutan, simply out of the world. Meeting new people, seeing new places and yummy food. This time I went with 2 of my friends but came back with 20 friends. WOW ,buddy Kanika was a sweetheart. Managing everything meticulously at the same time keeping us entertained. Getting packed breakfast ready early morning at 5 am to catch the 7 am flight was very touching . No hiccups in the trip. Not to forget Dhana, our guide and Tek, our driver was part of the WOW family. This was my fourth trip with WOW and looking forward to many more. Long live WOW, our best wishes are always with you.
