Short tour to visit the Buddhist Kingdom of Bhutan.
The Buddhist Kingdom of Bhutan, nestled in the heart of the great Himalayan range, is one of the world’s most beautiful travel destinations.
Bhutan is also known as Druk Yul meaning "The land of thunder dragon". It is often described as last Shangri-la.
This tiny Himalayan kingdom hosts a remarkable variety of climates and ecosystem, almost 72% of it under forest cover, high mountain terrain and deep fertile valleys. We have arranged this Glimpse of Bhutan tour in a way that would provide participants with opportunity to interact with the people of Bhutan and experience the Bhutanese way of life in its undiminished natural form.
A glimpse of a magical world where past and present merge, where traditions live and where the spiritual and material are undistinguished and indivisible aspects of every facet of life.
Day 01: Arrival Paro International airport / transfer to Thimpu (2300m) – 2 hrs. drive
During the flight, on a clear day, you can see breathtaking views of the Himalaya Mountains, including the sacred Jumolhari and Jichu Drake Peaks in Bhutan. On arrival you will be greeted by our representative and transferred to your hotel.
If time permit in the afternoon you can visit the following places:
In the evening you can drive to the capital town of Thimphu.
Day 02: Thimpu sightseeing / Drive to Paro (1460m.) - 2 hrs. drive
There are good many things to see in the capital which has a very relaxed, laid-back feel about it. Thimphu is relatively small having a population of approximately 45,000 people and the streets are wide and tree lined. You will almost certainly visit the Late King's Memorial Chorten, the National Library, Drubthob Nunnery, Folk Heritage Museum, the handmade paper factory, the school of arts and crafts where young students learn the traditional arts and crafts (Zo Rig Chusum – the thirteen crafts), Gold and the Silver Smiths workshop, Zangtopelri Lhakhang, and the Handicraft Emporium and the local handicraft centers to see the weavers at work and also varieties of textiles, Thangkha paintings, masks, Jewelry etc
Afternoon you can also visit Thimpu Dzhong which is the administrative headquarter of Bhutan.
Late afternoon drive to Paro for overnight stay.
Day 03: Paro - hike to Taksang (Tiger’s Nest Monastery)
After breakfast hike to Taktsang (Tiger’s Nest) Monastery, which is Bhutan’s most famous monastery. It is perched on the edge of a steep cliff, about 900 meters above Paro Valley. The hike to reach the viewpoint to the monastery makes for a nice half-day excursion. After lunch you can visit other important site which you could not complete previous days.
After lunch, tour of Bhutan's national museum, a fascinating place housed in an old watchtower above the huge Paro Dzong (monastery/fortress). The museum holds a fantastic collection of Bhutanese national treasures ranging from ancient armour to textiles and Thangkha paintings. Then, we drive to the head of the valley and visit Drukgyel Dzong built in a location that was chosen for its control over the route to Tibet. A spectacular view of Mount. Jumolhari (23,996ft /7314m) can be seen from here. Also visit Rinpung Dzong and a typical Bhutanese farm house.
Day 04: Departure
After early breakfast in the hotel, drive to the airport to connect flight for onward destination
From the time I emailed them until we left they were always good about communicating. They tailored a trip to exactly what we wanted. They even contacted us after the trip to make sure that we were happy with how everything went.
The only hiccup was we went specifically during Holi week because we wanted the full immersion of the culture and on Holi day everything was closed so we paid for a day but did not really get to do much. But our driver/guide was Buddhist instead of Hindu so he took us around for a few hours and then we were on our own the rest of that day.
But otherwise Nepal was the most amazing experience ever and this tour company helped make it that way.
We asked friendship tour to organise a trip to Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet Tour. The trip was perfect, guides and drivers punctual knowledgeable and very plesant! Everything was spot on! Thank you for a great tour and a fantastic experience! Highly recommended!
This was one of our best trips ever! The guides and drivers were exceptional. Our interests are plants and animals. Our guide and driver customized our trip and went far out of their way to be helpful. The Eco Hotel in Kathmandu upgraded us to a suite when we came back before our departure home. The hotel staff in Kathmandu went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The view from our hotel in Bandipur, Nepal was breathtaking and world class.
When you see the Himalayas reflected in Fewa Lake in Pokara, you have seen one of the most beautiful sights in the world. The monasteries in Bhutan were stunning, especially Tiger's Nest. The guide and driver in Bhutan were very well educated and knowledgeable. The guide in Chitwan took us to see baby elephants, on an elephant ride and a boat trip with numerous bird sightings. There were excellent vegetarian choices in the hotel in Chitwan. Thank you to Friendship Tours for a GREAT TRIP!
