    What to Expect
    Day 01 : Arrive Paro (2250m) - Thimphu (2350m)

    Arrive Paro and clear customs and visa formalities, meet the representatives and the Bhutanese guide.Then drive towards Thimphu (the capital of Bhutan) for about 1 & half hours drive. En-route Thimphu, one can do a short hike to Tamchog Monastery, a private temple owned by the descendants of famous Tibetan bridge – builder Thangthong Gaylpo. Later on continue the drive to Thimphu and visit Buddha point for a stunning view of Thimphu city and Takin Compound. Then continue to Tashi Choe Dzong, Folk Heritage, Centenary Farmers Market, the new authentic craft bazaar.

    Day 02 : Thimphu - Punakha (1,310m) via Dochula La (3140m)

    After early breakfast, drive towards Punakha for about 3 hours passing along Dochu La Pass at 3140m and reach the highly cultivated valley of Punakha. En-route take a short hike through beautiful rice fields to Chimmi Lhakhang. In the afternoon, visit Punakha Dzong located at the confluence of the Pho-chu and Mo-chu River.

    Day 03 : Punakha - Paro (2,250m)

    After early breakfast, drive from Punakha to Paro re-crossing Dochula pass and stopping at Thimphu for lunch. Arrive Paro in the afternoon and head out of the tourist trail for a short hike to 15th century Zurig Lhakhang above Paro Dzong overlooking the valley. It offers great views of Ta Dzong (watch Tower) and Paro Rinpung Dzong. En-route, visit the iconic 17th century Paro Rinpung Dzong which means “the fortress of the heap of jewels.” A quick descend arrives at the covered cantilever bridge marked with giant stupas. Overnight at Hotel.

    Day 04 : Paro - Hike to Taktsang Monastery (3,120m)

    Early in the morning, make an excursion to Taktshang Monastery – this has to be the monastery with the most outstanding setting in Bhutan. Set on a vertical cliff face at 2950m above sea level, it defies all engineering logic. For the energetic, hike 2 hours up to get a more dramatic view of the monastery. (The hike demands a certain level of fitness and a pony ride to the monastery can be arranged at additional cost). Just on the outskirts of Paro town, visit Kyichu Lhakang, one of the oldest temples in Bhutan and have the opportunity to meet the local villages in a local farm house. Overnight at Hotel.

    Day 05 : Departure

    After breakfast, transfer to the airport to catch the onward flight. Bid farewell to the remote and legendary Dragon Kingdom disappearing again behind its guardian mountains.
