Bhutan, the country of the "Thunder Dragon," welcomes you. During your flight, we're confident you'll be awestruck by the breathtaking view of the gorgeous Himalayas, particularly the tall Mt. Jumolhari and Jichu Drake Peaks. They are, however, merely a little appetizer. Our Bhutan guide and driver will be waiting for you at the Paro international airport and will then bring you to your accommodation.

After a quick break at your hotel, we may visit the Kyichu Lhakhang (also known as Kyerchu Temple), Bhutan's oldest and most beautiful temple, in the afternoon, if time permits. Kyichu Lhakhang, surrounded by fields, flowers, and hills, has the eight-year-old Sakyamuni Buddha statue, historic relics, exquisite murals, and various Buddhist scriptures, among other things. Later, see the Rinpung Dzong in Paro. Rinpung Dzong, a castle built in the 17th century to safeguard Paro Valley, is located in the suburbs of Paro City and offers stunning views and a sense of inner serenity. We will travel to Thimphu, Bhutan's capital, in the evening and spend the night there. Thimphu is a great place to spend the night.

Thimpu, Bhutan's capital, is devoid of clichéd skyscrapers and heavy traffic. Instead, Thimpu is recognized for its scenic Bhutan dzong, fresh air, and friendly locals, as it is surrounded by rolling mountains. Today's tour begins with a visit to the Late King's Memorial Chorten, followed by visits to the National Library, Folk Heritage Museum, and Hand-made Paper Factory, as well as the School of Arts and Crafts, where you will get a panoramic view of Bhutan history and learn more about traditional textile and handicraft making.

The focus is a visit to the Tashichho Dzong (Thimpu Dzong), Bhutan's most stunning dzong and the government's headquarters. We'll then journey northeast to Punakha, Bhutan's former capital. We'll stop for tea at the picturesque Dochu La Pass (3,100m) along the way. The ideal antique vantage point offers an unimpeded view of the Great Himalayas.We continue driving to Punakha after lunch at Wangduephodrang (1,350m).Punakha is where we spend the night.

Get up early in the morning to visit Punakha Dzong, which was built at the junction of the Pho Chhu and Mo Chhurivers and is often regarded as Bhutan's most beautiful Dzong. If you visit in mid-February, you should not miss the Punakha celebration.

We're about to return to Paro after exploring Punakha. In the afternoon, we visit Bhutan's National Museum, which is shaped like a round watchtower. You may learn about Bhutan's rich history and discover the diverse natural life as well as the wonderful local culture and arts. After that, we go to Drukgyel Dzong, where you can see the enchanting settlement at its foot. Spend the night in Paro.

TaktshangGoemba (3120 meters), perched on a cliff overlooking Paro Valley, is Paro's most famous sight as well as Bhutan's holiest shrine. Guru Padmasambhava (also known as Guru Rinpoche) is claimed to have flown here on the back of a tigress and meditated for three months in the cliffside caves. A panoramic view of Paro Valley may be seen from here. After lunch, you can relax in a stone bath or go exploring the area. Spend the night in Paro.

You'll see a variety of climatic conditions in Bhutan, depending on altitude and season. It's sweltering and humid to the south, while the uphills and mountains to the north are blanketed in snow. Due to rain shadow effects, rainfall can vary across a small distance. Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter are the four seasons that we experience. The rainy season begins in July and August, and Bhutanese believe that the rainy season will conclude in September with a festival called Thrue (beautiful rainy day). The seasons of spring and fall are ideal for tourists visiting Bhutan. Due to snowfalls, the temperature lowers below zero in the winter. The days are usually hot, while the nights are usually frigid.

Bhutanese Beliefs

Bhutanese people are god-fearing, peace-loving people who regularly incorporate Buddhist values into their daily lives. Nonviolence and compassion for all sentient beings are essential Buddhist philosophy principles that are deeply ingrained in Bhutanese culture. Prayer flags in the breeze, Chortens (stupas), monasteries, and twirling prayer wheels are all common sights, with people sending petitions through prayer flags and maintaining an unbroken line of communication with heaven.


Today, Bhutan is the only country in the world that practices the Tantric form of Mahayana Buddhism. Guru Padma Sambhava introduced Buddhism to the country in the 8th century AD. Religious festivals are known as 'Tsechus' and 'Dromchoes,' which represent amity, peace, and compassion, are held annually at various times throughout the kingdom. These vibrant festivals are a time for people from all walks of life to come together decently dressed in their ceremonial attire.
