Bhutan Cultural Tour

The mountain kingdom of Bhutan is a living masterpiece of ecological conservation in the world today. The Bhutan Cultural Tour is our effort to introduce you to the imposing Dzongs, or temple fortresses, that are intrinsic to Bhutanese Buddhism. You will begin your Bhutan Cultural tour from undoubtedly the most beautiful valley in the country, Paro. Tiger's Nest Monastery, 8th century Kichu Monastery, and the national museum are some conserved masterpiece in Paro. Following north along the Thimphu river, you will arrive Thimphu, the capital of Bhutan which is a potpuri of traditional and modern culture. After a tour in Thimphu, you will drive to Punakha valley across picturesque Dochula Pass (3150m) offering great views of Himalayan ranges on clear days. Then we tour Punakha valley with walk to the famous fertility temple, the Dzong and the 30 minutes hike to the Chorten on the hillock.
Day 01 : Arrive Paro [2250m/7382ft]
The flight to Paro crosses the Himalayan Mountains, offering spectacular views of the awesome peaks, including the sacred Jumolhari and Jichu Drake peaks in Bhutan. On arrival you will be greeted by the guide and transfer to the hotel. After lunch, visit the Ta Dzong, once a fortified lookout tower that is now the National Museum. Then walk down the trail to visit the Rinpung Dzong meaning "fortress of the heap of jewels". Next visit Kichu Lhakhang, the oldest temple in the country. From there you will be taken to the Drugyal Dzong (Bhutan Victory Fort), which was built in 1646 to commemorate Bhutan's victory over Tibetan invaders during the 1600s. On a clear day you can see Mount Jumolhari, Bhutan's second-highest mountain at 7,314meters. Overnight in Paro.
Day 02 - 03 : Drive Paro -Thimphu [2350m / 7710ft]
After breakfast we visit the King's Memorial Chorten (built in memory of the third King of Bhutan who reigned from 1952-1972), Nunnery Temple, Changgangkha Monastery, the radio tower (for a great view of Thimphu Valley), Majestic Thimphu Dzong, and the zoo, which contains the national animal of Bhutan: the takin. Afternoon visit to the famous Weekend Market. Stroll through the market to see the variety of food of the country, including basket upon basket of fiery chilies, fresh cheese, and mangoes. In addition, many stalls contain Bhutanese handicrafts and household items. It's fun to wander the aisles, taking in the bustling atmosphere of the market. This is perhaps good opportunity for photography and to mingle with locals who come from the nearby villages to sell their farm products. Overnight in Thimphu.
