Bhutan officially the Kingdom of Bhutan is a landlocked country in South Asia. Bhutan between China in the north and India in the south, it is located in the Eastern Himalayas. Bhutan is a mountainous country that is also known locally as "Druk Yul" or "Land of the Thunder Dragon." Bhutan is also a Buddhist nation. This name honors the nation's rich cultural heritage. The Prakrit-Hindi hybrid word Bhata is probably where the name Bhutan, which alludes to its proximity to Tibet, originates. Although they are close to Bhutan, Bangladesh and Nepal do not border it. The nation, which ranks 133rd in terms of land area and 160th in terms of population, has a population of over 727,145 and a territory that is 38,394 square kilometers (14,824 sq mi) in size. Bhutan is a constitutional monarchy with a prime minister serving as the head of government and a king (Druk Gyalpo) as the head of state. The Je Khenpo is the leader of the state religion, which practices Vajrayana Buddhism.

Itinerary

We have carefully planned out each day to give you the best possible experience. From exploring historic landmarks to tasting delicious local cuisine, each day is packed with adventure and excitement. Join us as we take you on a journey through some of the most fascinating destinations in the world.

Our representative will meet and greet guests at the airport or train station and help them board the vehicle so they can travel to Phuentsholing. The 160-kilometer (4-hour) drive passes through the lush Duars Tea Estate.Check into the hotel

upon arrival in Phuentsholing. The border between India and Bhutan is marked by the Indian town of Jaigaon and the Bhutanese town of Phuentsholing. The two towns are separated by a small settlement that is located at an elevation of almost 980 feet.

You can get your permit after an early morning breakfast with the help of our representative, and then we’ll head toward Thimpu. There are some waterfalls to be seen along the scenic drive. Located in the heart of the Himalayas, Thimpu is a charming city and likely the smallest capital in the entire world. It is located in the
western, central region of Bhutan, where the skyline hardly ever changes due to the traditional Bhutanese architecture used in the construction of all new buildings. It’s a bustling city with an intriguing fusion of tradition and modernity. At an elevation of 2350 meters (or 7710 feet), Thimpu is located. Arrive in Thimpu and check into your hotel. Stay the night at a hotel in Thimphu.

After an early breakfast, we will visit the Dupthop Lhakhang and the National Memorial Chorten constructed in memory of our late King Jigme Dorji Wangchuk. Visit the National Library, which is filled with antiquated Buddhist manuscripts, and the Painting School, where lessons in the painting of Thangkas help to preserve traditional art. Visit to the Tashichho Dzong, home of the Central Monastic Body and the national government, which also houses the Je Khenpo’s summer residence. Only during the winter, when the Je Khenpo and the monks relocate to Punakha, the former winter capital of Bhutan, is the Tashichho Dzong open to visitors. Drive to Simtokha Dzong, stop at the handicrafts market, and then go souvenir shopping. Stay the night in Thimphu.

After breakfast, it will be time to leave Punakha, the former capital of Bhutan, and travel for three hours. You will be surrounded by forests and begin gradually ascending the Dochu La pass as soon as you leave Thimphu. The Druk Wangyal Chortens, 108 chortens built in honor of Bhutanese soldiers who lost their lives in a conflict in 2003, are just one of the notable landmarks along this road that winds its way through the majestic Himalayas. You will begin your short and simple hike to the Chimi Lhakhang Temple, which is devoted to Bhutan’s well-known Saint Drukpa Kuenley, as soon as you arrive in Punakha. Following that, you will settle into your lodging and get some rest.

On your way back to Paro after breakfast, you’ll travel through the breathtaking scenery of Dochu La Pass. Midway through your journey, you’ll stop to take a two-hour hike through lush vegetation to the impressive Lungchutse Lhakhang. The temple offers even more breathtaking views of the Tibetan Plateau and the Bhutanese Himalaya as it is perched on a hill and rises 1,640 feet (500 m) above the already steep Dochu La. Take a stroll around the temple, take some time for meditation, and end your visit with a picturesque picnic lunch looking out over the landscape below. You’ll begin a gentle one-hour descent to Trashigang Goenba, another stunning monastic complex, after lunch. After you arrive, you can take some time to relax at your lodging before going on your own exploration.

Get pumped for the hike to the breathtaking Tiger’s Nest Monastery, which will be the highlight of your trip to Bhutan. The legendary Taktsang Goenba, or Taktsang Goenba as it is known locally, is a strenuous one to three-hour hike. It is arguably Bhutan’s most well-known landmark. The strenuous hike comes to an end as you approach this magnificent monastery. The temple, which was carved into the side of a mountain, is incredibly impressive and makes for some amazing pictures. The crowds at Tiger’s Nest can be left behind if you have the strength to continue climbing, and you can continue uphill to other monasteries like Zangdopelri and Ugyen Tshemo. You’ll stop at Khyichu Lhakhang, Bhutan’s oldest temple, on the way back to Paro Valley. The temple’s importance to the local culture cannot be overstated, despite the fact that it is not as well known as Tiger’s Nest. You will have a delicious dinner and spend the night in Paro when you return.

We will return to Phuentsholing after an early- morning breakfast. The Indian Border Road Organization, Dantak, constructed the Phuentsholing Road in 1962, and it is generally in good condition. With so many beautiful places to stop along the way, this route makes for a very pleasant drive. When you get to Phuentsholing, you can explore the neighborhood on your own in the evening. Overnight at the hotel in Phuentsholing.

Following an early breakfast, we will check out of the hotel. Transfer to Siliguri prior to departure. Next, travel via Madarihat, Chalsa, and Sevoke along Highway 31. National Highway 31 runs alongside the transfer, which is generally in good condition and has vegetation on either side. The drive passes through the Dooars, or the Himalayan foothills; it is a plain forested area with many tea estates. One of the most stunning and picturesque green belts in the area. If you have time, stop at the Coronation bridge in Sevoke to take pictures.
