Bhutan short tour will bring you the opportunity to see the Thimphu the capital city of Bhutan perhaps that is the only city without traffic light. The Thimphu Chu meanders through this valley of about 50,000 people. Thimphu Dzong, also known as the Tashichhodzong, houses the Throne Room of His Majesty the king of Bhutan. This Dzong, completely renovated in the 60s by the third king, is also the summer residence of the Central Monastic Body. The highlights of this expedition include exploring of beautiful Paro valley a rich culture, scenic beauty and hundreds of myths and legends. It is home to many of Bhutan’s oldest temples and monasteries, the country’s only airport. 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. Bumthang has a quaintness that charms travelers. Comprising of four small valleys, the deeply spiritual region of Bumthang is a stop, must for the Buddhist. The valley is home to the sacred Jampa and Kurjey Monasteries where body marks of Guru Rimpoche can be seen, impressed into a Rock. Bumthang is also home the 16th century Buddhist teacher Pema Lingpa, to whom many important dynasty traces its ancestry.
