Ways to reach Bhutan:
Day 01: Paro - Thimpu
After breakfast, complete the immigration formalities and transfer to Thimphu (7,710 ft.) the capital city of Bhutan. On arrival check in at the hotel. In the evening, visit the Tashichho Dzong (Fortress of the Glorious Religion). Overnight stay at Thimphu.
Day 02: Thimpu SIghtseeing

Overnight stay at Thimphu.
Day 03: Paro - Punakha
After breakfast, drive to Punakha. On arrival, check in at the hotel. Visit the Buddha Dordenma Statue, which is the world’s largest Buddha statue made of copper. On the road, visit the DochuLa Pass, which is a high mountain pass between Thimphu and Punakha and has some of the most exquisite views of the Himalayas. After lunch, visit the Punakha Zhong or the Punakha Monastery and the Chimi Lhakhang temple, which is surprisingly a Buddhist temple for a monk attracted to women and alcohol (yes you heard us right) and now it’s a pilgrimage destination for childless couples.
Day 04: White Water Rafting and Drive to Paro
One of the amazing things to do while in Punakha is the White River Rafting on the Mo Chhu. This activity more or less depends on your timing of visit to the country. While in Autumn, it’s a sedate task; in spring, it’s a bigger adventure.
Day 05: Paro
While in the Cultural Capital of Bhutan, visit the National Museum which has numerous thangkas, Buddhist artefacts and festival masks on display. Visit the Paro Dzong and Kichu Lhakhang, one of the oldest temples in Bhutan.
Day 06: Hike to Taktsang
After breakfast, visit Drukgyel Dzong. Also visit the famous Taktsang Monastery ‐ called “Tiger’s Nest” (2hrs hike from the base camp) & Kichu Monastery. Overnight stay will be at Paro.
