Package Overview

Punakkha :- Pungthang Dewachen Phodrang or Punakha Dzong was constructed by Tuebi Zaow Balip under the great command of Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal in 1637 and believed to have been completed in two years of time period. It is also the country's most beautiful Dzong. 

Punakha valley is famous in Bhutan for rice farming. Both red and white rice are grown along the river valley of Pho and Mo Chu, two of the most prominent rivers in Bhutan. Ritsha (meaning at the base of a hill) is a typical village in Punakha. The village houses are made of pounded mud with stone foundations. Each house is only two storeys high. Surrounding the houses are the gardens and the rice fields. The gardens also usually have fruit bearing plants like oranges and papaya among the organic vegetables.

Majestically standing on an island between the confluence of the Pho Chhu and Mo Chhu rivers, the city's dzong is one of the most photogenic of all Bhutan's ancient fortresses, and you will see pictures of it hanging in hotels and restaurants throughout the country. The dzong is joined to the mainland by an arched wooden bridge, and contains many precious relics from the days when successive kings reigned the kingdom from this valley. The dzong serves as the winter home of the monastic body. 

Places of Interest :-  Punakha Dzong , khansum Yulley Namgyal Chorten, Sangchhen Dorji Lhuendrup nunnery,  Chimi Lhakhang, etc.

Paro :- The charming town of Paro lies on the banks of the Paro (or Pa) Chhu, just a short distance northwest of the imposing Paro Dzong. The main street, only built in 1985, is lined with colourfully painted wooden shop fronts and restaurants, though these appear under threat as the town grows and multi-storey concrete buildings continue to propagate. For now Paro remains one of the best Bhutanese towns to explore on foot and is worth an hour or two's stroll at the end of a day of sightseeing.

Paro is a historic town with many sacred sites and historical buildings scattered through the area. In addition, the Paro Valley is wide and verdant and is recognized a one of the most beautiful in all Bhutan. Prefer to stay in Paro if you are someone who is fond of nature and would like to spend quiet and peaceful time. However, apart from the main street (which is constructed of traditional wooden structures), the bazaar area is a nondescript hodgepodge of concrete buildings that is totally bereft of charm and character. Along with Jakar and Punakha, Paro forms the 'golden triangle' of popular tourist destinations in Bhutan.

Places Of Interest :-  Taktsang Palphug Monastery, Rinpung Dzong, Chele La Pass, Kichu Lakhang, Dzongdrakha Temple, National Museum, Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche Memorial House, etc.

Thimphu :- Thimphu, Bhutan’s capital, occupies a valley in the country’s western interior. In addition to being the government seat, the city is known for its Buddhist sites. The massive Tashichho Dzong is a fortified monastery and government palace with gold-leaf roofs. The Memorial Chorten, a whitewashed structure with a gold spire, is a revered Buddhist shrine dedicated to Bhutan’s third king, Jigme Dorji Wangchuck.

The capital of one of the world's most intriguing destinations, Thimphu has all but shrugged off the friendly village tag. The city buzzes with a commercial exuberance that constantly challenges the country's natural conservatism and Shangri La image. Vehicle traffic, unheard of a handful of years ago, now courses through the ever-growing road network nourishing a construction boom. However, the juxtapositions of old and new remain part of Thimpu's charm. Crimson-robed monks, Indian labourers, government ministers clad in ghos and kiras (traditional dress) and camera-wielding tourists all share the pot-holed pavements.

For the visitor Thimphu offers the best opportunity to briefly break away from the tour itinerary. In addition to its traditional Buddhist sights and attractions, it offers cafes, bars, nightclubs and restaurants. Finding a balance between the esoteric and espresso – the old and the new – is the key to getting the most out of this captivating city.

Places Of Interest :- Memorial Chorten, Simtokha Dzong, National Library, Institute for Zorig Chusum, Traditional Medicine Institute, The Folk Heritage Museum (Phelchey Toenkhyim), National Textile Museum, Trashichhoedzong, Changangkha Lhakhang, Craft Bazaar , and many more..
