Travel Before 15 December 2023

Outline Itinerary:-

Day 1:- Fly to Paro. Drive to Thimphu (50 Km / 01 Hrs. Drive)

The great snow-capped peaks of the inner Himalayas rise up to the heavens can be seen during clear weather. As the plane approaches Bhutan, if you look down, farmhouses as dots on the hillsides can be seen. As the aircraft enters the Paro valley, you will see Paro Dzong on the hillside overlooking the Paro Chu (river), with Ta Dzong, formerly a watchtower and now the National Museum, above it.Then drive to Thimphu (approx. 01 hr.), the capital town of Bhutan. The road leads through the Paro valley to the confluence of Paro and Thimphu rivers at Chuzom (confluence).
Upon reaching Thimphu Visit, Memorial Chorten: The Memorial Chorten, also known as the Thimphu
Chorten, is a large Tibetan-style Buddhist Monastery is a popular landmark in the city with its golden spires and bells. It was built in 1974 to honor the memory of the third king, Jigme Dorji Wangchuk. The architecture of the chorten has been designed to present it as ‘one of the most visible religious structures in Thimphu’. The whitewashed chorten is decorated with richly carved annexes facing the cardinal directions, and features elaborate mandalas, statues and a shrine dedicated to the popular third king. There are numerous religious paintings and complex tantric statues housed inside reflecting both peaceful and wrathful aspects of Buddhist deities. This chorten is unlike other Chortens as it does not enshrine the mortal remains of the King. Only the King’s photo in a ceremonial dress adorns a hall in the ground floor. The King when he was alive wanted to build ‘a chorten to represent the mind of the Buddha’. Tashichho Dzong: Located on the northern edge of the city of Thimphu, on the western bank of the Wangchu Tashichho Dzong is Bhutan's most stately and arguably the most impressive building. It has traditionally been the seat of the Druk desi or ‘Dharma Raja’, the head of Bhutan's civil government, an office which has been combined with the kingship since the creation of the monarchy in 1907, and summer capital of the country. It houses the throne room of His Majesty the King of Bhutan and is the summer residence of the venerated monastic community. The current Dzong is the impressive result of a redesign of the original medieval structure sanctioned by the Third King, His Majesty King Jigme Dorji Wangchuk, when he moved the capital to Thimphu from Punakha.
The Fortress of the glorious religion houses the throne room of His Majesty the King, the main secretariat building and the central monk body. Its courtyard is open to visitors during the Thimphu Tshechu and when the monk moves to its winter residence in Punakha.

Day 2:- In Thimphu

After breakfast at hotel, start your sightseeing program by visiting the Government-run Handicrafts Emporium and local crafts shops, to browse through examples of Bhutan’s fine traditional arts. Here you can buy hand- woven textiles, thangka paintings, masks, ceramics, slate and wood carvings, jewelry, and other interesting items made from local materials.The Buddha Dordenma is located atop a hill in Kuensel Phodrang Nature Park and overlooks the Southern entrance to Thimphu Valley. The statue fulfils an ancient prophecy dating back to the 8th century A.D that was discovered by Terton Pema Lingpa (Religious Treasure Discoverer) and is said to emanate an aura of peace and happiness to the entire world. This massive statue of Shakyamuni measures in at a height of 51.5 m, making it one of the largest statues of Buddha in the world. The statue is made of bronze and is gilded in gold. 125,000 smaller Buddha statues have been placed within the Buddha Dordenma statue; 100,000 statues of which are 8-inches-tall and 25,000 statues of which are 12 inches tall. Each of these thousands of Buddha’s have also been cast in bronze and gilded. The throne that the Buddha Dordenma sits upon is a large meditation hall. The Folk heritage museum: A three storied traditional building houses the Folk Heritage Museum. The earthen and timber building was renovated and restored few years ago to appear as it was century ago. Established in 2001 in Thimphu, the museum provides glimpse into the traditional Bhutanese material culture
and way of life. The artifacts, which are kept inside the house, remind the visitors about how the rural
Bhutanese live today. This 19th century traditional house provides you a glimpse of the Bhutanese lifestyle and artifacts from the rural households. One can come across typical household objects, tools and equipment. Visit the Painting School where traditional art is still kept alive through instructions in the art of painting Thangka (sacred Buddhist religious scrolls). Visit the Traditional Medicine Institute where medicines are prepared according to ancient practices, and then on to observe a Bhutanese paper factory at work. This is generally an “outside-only” visit. Continue on to the Folk Heritage and National Textile Museums. These museums, both of which opened in 2001, provide fascinating insights into Bhutanese material culture and way of life.
Also, visit the Takin Sanctuary located in the Motithang district of Thimphu, a wildlife reserve area for Takin, the National Animal of Bhutan. It is said that Drukpa Kunley or Devine Madman, a popular 15th century saint is said to have created it with his magical power at a large congregation of devotees. It resembles a cow from back, a goat from the front, and it continues to befuddle taxonomists, who cannot quite relate to another animal.Later in the evening, visit Tashichho Dzong which is located on the northern edge of the city of Thimphu, on the western bank of the Wang Chu, Bhutan's most stately and arguably the most impressive building. It has traditionally been the seat of the Druk Desi or ‘Dharma Raja’, the head of Bhutan's civil government, an office which has been combined with the kingship since the creation of the monarchy in 1907, and summer capital of
the country.

Day 3:- Drive to Paro (50 Km – 01 Hour)

After breakfast at hotel drive to Paro which takes approximately 01-hour drive.
Visit the National Museum of Bhutan, housed inside the revamped circular Ta-Dzong building, an ancient watchtower above the Paro Dzong. This unusual round building is said to be in the shape of a conch shell. The original building was constructed in 1656 but the building was converted into a museum in 1968. The necessary infrastructure was created to house some of the finest specimens of Bhutanese art, including masterpieces of bronze statues and paintings gathered from different parts of the country. Suitable galleries were constructed to house the extensive collections. Works of art were elegantly displayed on scientific lines. Some of the handicraft’s items cover the history and cultural heritage of more than 1500 years.
Also visit Paro Dzong is one of the most impressive and well-known Dzong in Bhutan. One of the finest examples of Bhutanese architecture, it is also known as the Ringpung Dzong, which means ‘fortress on a heap of jewels. It is the administrative seat of the district of Paro. The Dzong was built in the 16th century on the foundation of a monastery built by Guru Rinpoche. It was used on numerous occasions to defend the Paro Valley from invasions by Tibet. Visit the Kyichu Lhakhang an important Himalayan Buddhist Temple. It is one of Bhutan’s oldest religious sites built in the seventh century. This temple is one of 108 built by Tibetan emperor Songtsen Gampo to subdue a demoness who prevented the spread of Buddhism. Temples were built across the Himalayas to pin her body down. Kyichu Lhakhang pins down her left foot and Jamba Lhakhang in Bumthang her left knee.

Day 4:- In Paro. Hiking to Tiger’s Nest Monastery

Embark on a long hike to one of Bhutan’s most revered icons, Taktsang (“Tiger’s Nest”) Monastery thatclings to a cliff 3,000 feet above the valley floor. You hike on a wide trail and the round-trip journey covers alittle over 4 miles and reaches heights of 9,184 feet above sea level. (You may choose to hike all the way to the monastery or stop after two hours at a cafeteria and make your way back.) Spend the day among the monks at this sacred pilgrimage site, where the great tantric mystic Guru Rinpoche (also known as Padmasambhava) is believed to have flown on the back of the tiger to bring the teachings of the Buddhist Dharma to Bhutan. In the evening, get first-hand experience in archery, Bhutan’s national sport and national obsession.
