Thimphu and Punakha Tour Itinerary

Day 1
Welcome to Bhutan. You will be received by your guide for this trip at the Paro International Airport. We will stop by Chelela, the highest motor able pass at 3988 meters above the sea level and then drive to Thimphu, Bhutan’s capital (about 65 kilometers/2hours). After reaching the hotel and resting for a short while, we will visit the National Memorial Chorten built in honor of the late King Jigme Dorji Wangchuk and the Centenary Farmers’ Market. Farmers from all over Bhutan come to this market to sell their local products.
You will then be driven to Motithang Takin Preserve, home to Bhutan’s National Animal. You can choose to check into the light life of Thimphu for local beer or retire for the day.
Day 2
Thimphu will be the most crowded during the festival. The main road that passes the heart of the town will be closed for traffic and people in colorful dresses will be talking on the road, enjoying the festival and children playing with toys. We will visit the Tshechu early morning and spend the entire day at the festival.
Day 3
We will stop by the Simtokha Dzong before heading to Punakha. Simtokha is the one of first Dzongs built in Bhutan in1629 by Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyel. Today it is school for learning Dzongkha, the national language of Bhutan. On the way to Punakha, we will pass by the scenic Duchula pass at 3100m. If it is a clear day you will be able to get the best view of Eastern Himalayas, if it’s a cloudy day, we will check it on our way back the next day.
Punakha is the winter seat of the Je-Khenpo, Chief Abbot of Bhutan. After going in the hotel, we will stroll around the Khuru town and call it a day.
Day 4
Punakha Dzong, the winter residence of Je-Khenpo is a magnificent 180m long and 72m wide perfect example of Bhutanese architecture. Built in 1637, it is the second oldest Dzong in Bhutan. After visiting the Dzong we will head Phobjikha.

The Phobjikha valley is most known for its scenic splendor and cultural uniqueness. It houses the endangered black-necked cranes Grus nigricollis, 13 other globally threatened species. The stunning valleys ranging from 2800m to 4000m boasts of its numerous trekking trails.
Day 6
Behold, it’s the Taktshang Hike. Taktshang isn’t just for the tourists and many locals hike to visit the monastery every day. Adroned by prayer flags and the iconic Taktshang monastery built on a super steep cliff is the view of a lifetime. But before we take the hike, we will visit the Drugyel Dzong meaning the victory castle.
Day 7
