Trip Overview

The country within these borders forms a giant staircase, from the grassy floodplains and reverie forests in the south through semi tropical and alpine forests to some of the highest unclimbed Himalayan peaks on earth. Bhutan is the tiny kingdom practically unknown to the outside world, presents a most fascinating yet an untouched natural beauty, unique culture and ancient traditions. Bhutan is truly SHANGRILA, a mythical country hidden deep in the mountains for centuries isolated, inaccessible and forbidden; this Himalayan Kingdom cautiously opened its borders to curious visitors.

Here in Dragon Kingdom Tour design for 7 nights 8 days focus to visit Paro, Thimphu, Wangduephodrang and Punakha. Thimphu is perhaps the most unusual capital city in the world. Without any traffic light or Mc Donald’s, Thimphu is a hip place in its own rights. The Traditional School of Arts and Crafts, offer interesting insights into the Bhutanese arts and crafts. Students from various backgrounds are taught the age old strict traditions of the arts and crafts. Paro is a rich valley. One of Bhutan’s widest valleys, Paro is one of the more populated areas of in the country. Paro has a lot of attractions and requires a few days to be properly explored. Casting a shadow across the town of Paro and controlling secular and religious activities in the valley is the imposing but well proportioned Rinpung Dzong. Built in 1646 by Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal, the first spiritual and temporal ruler of Bhutan, the Dzong houses the monastic body of Paro and the office of the Dzongda (district chief). Punakha lies about two hours drive from Dochu La. With only a sparse population, Punakha Dzong is home to the central monk body and the Je Khenpo during the milder winter months. Wangduephordang is the last major western town. The town is no more than an enlarged village with a few well-provided shops. Perched on a spur, overlooking the junction of the two rivers below, Wangduephordang Dzong is the town’s most famous landmark. In the 17th century, Wangduephordang played a critical role in unifying the western, central and southern Bhutanese regions.
