  • Day 1: Arrival in Thimpu

    Stop At: Thimphu, Thimphu, Thimphu District
    After arriving at Paro International Airport, your journey begins with a one-hour drive, passing rich, forested mountains dotted with monasteries and temples on route to Thimphu, the capital.

    At an altitude of 7,700 ft (2,200 meters), Thimphu lies in a steep valley and is the only city in the world without a single traffic light.

    We recommend slower paced activities on your first day as you adjust to the altitude. If energy levels allow, visit Zorig Chusum (The National Institute of 13 Arts and Crafts) to discover Bhutan’s numerous art forms before crossing the road to visit the Folk Heritage Museum, which offers insights into Bhutanese daily life in the past.

    Then get up close and personal with the majestic Buddha Dordenma (170 feet/52 meter) statue perched high above the valley.

    Return to the hotel and settle into the comfort of your room for a well-deserved night’s rest. Night stay in Thimphu.

    Proceed to Paro National Museum, which displays a collection of ancient and modern thangkas (Buddhist paintings on cotton) as well as a collection of fearsome festival masks. Afterwards take a stroll down to the river with your guide and test your strength and skills with archery, Bhutan’s colorful national sport.

    Celebrate your victory afterwards with a cold brew at the Namgay Artisanal Brewery, where a local entrepreneur is successfully bringing micro-brewing to Bhutan.Later, return to your lodge for wellness treatments and a delicious dinner that incorporates ingredients from their organic farm.

    Your guide will hike up with you to the monastery and share
    stories of its history along the way. Enjoy the wonderful scenery through pine forests that are colorfully decorated with moss and prayer flags.
