Trip Itinerary

Day 01: Arrival at Paro International Airport

Day 02: Thimpu Sightseening
Today is your first full day in Bhutan. You may like to spend part of the morning looking around the weekend market in Thimpu before visiting the remaining sights in Thimpu. Thimpu is a great place to walk around and there are lots of interesting shops to look in which sell local crafts.

Day 03: Thimpu - Phobjikha
In the morning you drive from Thimpu to Phobjikha. The Phobjikha valley is more wide and open than many of the other valleys in Bhutan. It is a glacial valley on the edge of the Black Mountains National Park. During the winter it is home to the endangered black necked cranes which migrate here to escape the extreme cold of Tibet. When you turn off the main road and enter the valley the views are amazing.

Day 04 : Phobjikha - Trongsa - Jakar, Bumthang Valley
Today you drive to the next town called Trongsa. Here you can visit the impressive Dzong which is the largest in Bhutan.

Day 05 : Jakar, Bumthang Valley
Today you will have a walking tour of some of the temples in the Jakar area including the picturesque Thangbi Mani Lhkahang which is located in a quiet corner of the valley framed by beautiful mountains. There will also be the chance to visit Jakar Dzong, which is the perfect vantage point for views across Jakar.

Day 06 : Jakar, Bumthang Valley - Punakha
Although the drive from Jakar to Punakha is long it is very scenic and if the weather is clear there will be fantastic views of the mountains from the high passes.

Day 07: Punakha
Enjoy a day walk that includes the scenic Khamsum Yul-le Namgyel Chorten. The Chorten lies at the other end of the valley to Punakha Dzong and the walk along the river to this point is lovely.

Day 08: Punakha - Paro
Today you will travel back to Paro which is the final place you will visit on your tour to Bhutan. In the afternoon you may visit Paro Dzong and Ta Dzong, which is used to be a watchtower but is now the fascinating National Museum or this can be completed in addition to your excursions tomorrow.

Day 09 : Stay at Paro
You will begin the day with a walk up the Tiger`s Nest Monastery. The path is steep and the walk takes around 3 hours to reach the top where you can go in and look around the monastery. The views are incredible and well worth the climb. If you did not have time yesterday you can visit Drukgyel Dzong and the National Museum this afternoon, continue exploring the valley with your guide or rest & relax at your hotel.
Day 10: Departure.
