If you are connecting from Nepal, we have some recommended add-on trips that you may consider;
Fly onboard Druk Air or Bhutan Air to Paro, Bhutan. On a clear day, the panoramic views of the Himalaya are sensational, including Mount Everest (if you are flying from Delhi and Kathmandu – Prefer left side of the flight), but particularly exciting is the approach through the Bhutanese foothills and the landing, including a few steep, turn to land at the tiny airstrip of Paro. In Paro; you will be received by your Bhutanese guide and then drive to Thimphu.
Depending on your flight time; visit the following sights:
Kuenselcholing View Point: A place from where you can get a good overview of the Thimphu valley is from the Buddha point (Kuensel Phodrang). It is again a short drive from the town. You can pay your obeisance and offer prayers to the Buddha, the largest statue in the country and then walk around and take a glimpse of the valley.
Memorial Chorten: This particular Chorten was constructed in 1974 as a memorial for the third King of the country, King Jigme Dorji Wangchuck, who is widely regarded as the father of modern Bhutan.
Tashichho Dzong: The name means Fortress of Glorious Religion. It was built in 1641 by Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyel. It houses the secretariat building, the throne room and the office of the king, and the central monk body. Later relax for the day and stroll around the city.
Overnight at HOTEL, Thimphu.
After breakfast, retrace your drive back to Paro from Thimphu and to the edge of Paro Valley to hike Taktsang Monastery. Also knows as “Tiger’s Nest”, is built around a cave in which Guru Rimpoche (also known as Guru Padmasambhava) meditated.
It is believed that Guru Rimpoche is said to have flown to the site of the monastery on the back of a tigress from Tibet and meditated in the cave there for three months. Although the main building of the temple was destroyed by fire in April 1998, the hike up to the viewpoint is worthwhile and fulfilling. The eighth-century monastery is perched on a rock overlooking a sheer drop and clings seemingly impossible to a cliff of rock at 9678 feet above the valley floor. For the local people, it is a place of pilgrimage, but for a tourist, a hike up to the viewpoint opposite the monastery is exhausting, thrilling and mystical. It takes almost 2.5 hours to walk up at an average walk. (Almost Five hours hike (back and forth), some gentle and some steep hike, some stony footpath and some good ones) If you ride a horse upward it will cost an extra US$25 per person. It is optional as the tour can be done as per your requirement instead of hiking
Later visit Kichu Lhakhang, Ringpung Zong, and National Museum and stroll around the town and see how locals live.
