Glimpse of Bhutan Tour - 04 Days

Our shortest Bhutan extension tour is designed to introduce you to the timeless wonders of the Dragon Kingdom. You encounter the ancient dzongs (fortresses) and monasteries, relish the idyllic Bhutanese countryside, and visit Thimpu, the quaint capital city. The strategically located Drugyel Dzong defended the Paro valley against the Tibetan invasion in the early 17th century.
The watch tower of Ta Dzong now houses the National Museum, highlighting aspects of Bhutanese history and culture. The Rinpung Dzong is the administrative center and a school for monks. You visit the 15th century Changangkha monastery in Thimpu. On your return to Paro, you stop at the Simtokha Dzong, the first building in Bhutan. This is a fascinating introduction to this magical Himalayan kingdom.


ITINERARY


Day 01: Arrive Paro
The first thing you will notice as you disembark is the transparent purity of air and the absence of noise. The Paro valley has kept its bucolic nature inspite of the airport and the existence of development projects. Fields, brown or green depending on the season, cover most of the valley floor, while hamlets and isolated farms dot the countryside. The houses of Paro valley are considered to be among the most beautiful in the country. Paro is believed to be one of the first valleys to have received the imprint of Buddhism.
Afternoon: Visit the National Museum (Ta-Dzong). Once the watchtower for the Rinpung Dzong, it was converted into the National Museum in 1968. The museum stands on a promontory overlooking the Paro valley in all its glory.
Visit the Paro Rinpung Dzong. A flagstone path rises gradually from a beautiful wooden bridge with shingle roofing and abutted by two guardhouses, to the Dzong. Today, the Dzong is the seat of the district administration as well as the home for the monastic school. The central tower (Utse) of the Dzong, with its superb woodwork, is one of the most beautiful in the nation. The Dzong was built in 1645 A.D.Check in at Hotel
