Trip Overview

Bhutan is the genuine spot to appreciate and enjoy the incredibly scenic and cultural beauty. From cities like Paro, Thimpu to Punakha, each has unique architectural and cultural aspect to them. With rhododendron forests on the full bloom (late April/early May), you pass through local villages and markets. Unspoiled nature of Bhutan definitely impresses every visitor. 06 Days Bhutan Cultural Tour offers a lot of monuments and sites to go sightseeing like Buddha Dordenma, Tashichho Dzong, Punakha Dzong, Semtokha Dzong, National Museum of Bhutan, Paro Taktshang and more. The modern capital of Bhutan, Thimpu has Tango Buddhist Institute which is perfect for experiencing the true Buddhist influence.

06 Days Bhutan Cultural Tour is ideal to enjoy sightseeing and observe the local lifestyle of Bhutan closely. Your journey will begin with a flight from Kathmandu, Nepal to Paro, Bhutan followed by a drive to Thimpu where you spend overnight. For the second day of the tour, you will reach Punakha from Thimpu via driving. Although it is quite a remote area, passing through Dochu La with glimpses of Himalayas (peaks) and rhododendron forests along the way make it an incredible journey.
