Punakha Trail Trek - 12 Days

Trek Level:  Easy
Best Season: January to March and November to December

Bhutan is also known as the Dragon Kingdom. We will visit Thimphu valley, the capital of Bhutan. There is also a visit to Changankha Lakhang (the Handicraft Center) and the National Museum. The tour also includes visits to many monasteries and dzongs (fortresses), all having their own unique historical and cultural significance. Your senses will awake upon entering the impressive courtyard of the Punakha Dzong; " Palace of Great Happiness ". The Dzong lies between two rivers, the Pochu and Mochu, male and female rivers.
Here we can truly appreciate the essence of Bhutanese people and a preserved steadfast culture. Arrays of colorful brocades whirl through the air as the dancers spin and dance the "thunderbolt step". Masks of glorious demonic demons and animals arouse your senses as you watch the purification take place. If you have ever wanted to go to Bhutan this is as a good a deal you will ever find. Treat yourself to a deal

Afternoon, visit Ta Dzong, round tower built in 1775 as watch tower and refuge fortress for the Rinpung Dzong. The National Museum was opened within its walls in 1967.
