Bhutan Tour - 6 Days

Bhutan Tour begins with the sightseeing of Thimpu, such as National Memorial Chorten, National Library, Takin Reserve, and Textile Museum.

This tour also takes you to the school of arts and crafts and the house of incense and paper, which are the places of interest to the tourists. Bhutan Tour also includes a drive to Punakha and the Dochula Pass, which offers a panoramic view of mountains. Later, the tour takes you to Chimi Lhakhang temple, which blesses women, who seek fertility. Punakha Dzong, an old palace, and which you visit, had defended Bhutan against several incursions in the past, and so did Rimpung, Ta, and Drugyel dzongs, which are remarkable.

Exploring the rampart of Drugyel dzong, you know how this dzong overcame such incursions in the past, and you also see the magnificent view of Mt. Jomalhari, the sacred mountain of Bhutan. Bhutan tour also takes you to archery centre, and archery is a national game of Bhutan. During Bhutan Tour, you also do an excursion to Tigers Nest which clings to the edge of a sheer rock cliff and which plunges 900 m into the Paro Valley. History states that Guru Padmasambhava, the Tantric mystic, who brought Buddhism to Bhutan, landed here on the back of a flying tigress from Tibet.

Guru Padmasambhava also established Nyingma School of Mahayana Buddhism in Bhutan, and many Bhutanese believe that he is the protector saint of Bhutan. On the way to Tiger’s Nest, you come across beautiful scenery and waterfall that breaks the silence of the beautiful surroundings in an acceptable way. You also see blue pine trees, prayer flags and a number of temples, including Guru Rinpoche’s cave, where he had meditated.
