Trip Facts

Duration : 8 Days Trek Grade : Grade 2:

These treks are suitable for any walker looking for something a little more challenging and energetic. They are a combination of some longer and shorter walks and hill-walking experience is desirable. The duration is usually from 10 to 15 days. Following the up and down terrain of Nepal and walking to higher elevations contrasts these treks to those in the easy classification. However, you will be rewarded for your efforts with spectacular close-up views of glaciers and of the high Himalayas. Although the terrain is not difficult, some vigorous hiking experience is useful. There may be up to 6 hours a day on the trail and the elevation rises and falls from 800m/ 2624ft to 4000m/13210ft above sea level.

Overview

7 nights 8 days Bhutan Tour

 (Arrival at Paro International Airport)

After clearing immigration and customs, proceed to the right of the exit door where you will find an ATM for local currency and a post office where you can purchase a local SIM card if you wish. Alternatively, your guide will assist you with these at local bank/com store. Exiting the main terminal door, your MTT guide and driver will greet you and transfer to Local Restaurant for lunch.

This afternoon you will pay a visit to the National Museum, a fascinating place housed in an old watchtower above the vast Paro Dzong (monastery/fortress). The museum holds fantastic collections of Bhutanese national treasures including highly decorated thangkas (religious hangings) statutes and weaponry.

After the visit to the museum, drive down to the Dzong where you will see the traditional architecture of the building, and you will have a beautiful walk down to the Bhutanese cantilever bridge.

This afternoon, visit Kyichu Lhakhang- one of Bhutan’s oldest and most beautiful temples boasting an orange tree that perpetually bears fruit followed by the old ruined fortress of the Drukgyel Dzong (14KM from Paro). This is the historical site of the Fort of Drukpa Victory, from the Bhutanese, used to repel the Tibetan invaders again and again. On a clear day view of the 7316 meters, domed snow peak of sacred Mt. Jhomolhari can be seen. Overnight stay in Paro

 

 Day II:  (Hiking Pilgrimage & sightseeing in the Paro Valley)

In the morning, hike up to the Taktsang Monastery also known as Tiger’s Nest. This is Bhutan’s most revered monastery and all Bhutanese strive to make the pilgrimage here at least once in their lives. This visit is much more than ‘just a hike,’ and each step gains merit points for the next part of life’s journey.

Choose between a 1.5-2 hour round trip hike to the monastery viewpoint, or a more extended 5 hours and more strenuous into the monastery itself. Please note you must be of at least moderate fitness to make it all the way to the monastery and back. Tiger’s Nest clings impossibly to a cliff of rock at 800 meters above the valley floor and where Guru Rinpoche flew on the back of a Tigress to subdue the local demons followed by 3 months meditation in a cave still visible in the monastery. In 1998 Taktsang was severely damaged by fire and has since been painstakingly reconstructed to its original condition and consecrated by the 4th King in 2005.

This afternoon, time permitting, visit Kyichu Lhakhang- one of Bhutan’s oldest and most beautiful temples boasting an orange tree that perpetually bears fruit followed by the old ruined fortress of the Drukgyel Dzong (14KM from Paro). This is the historical site of the Fort of Drukpa Victory, from the Bhutanese, used to repel the Tibetan invaders again and again. On clear day views of the 7316 meters, domed snow peak of sacred Mt. Jhomolhari can be seen. Overnight stay at Paro.

Day III:  (Paro – Punakha Valley) – Drive 5 hours

This morning drive eastwards to Punakha valley. Ascend to Dochula Pass-(3114 m) to view the 108 stupas; a memorial to those who lost their lives in late 2003 when Bhutan evicted Indian rebels camped in the jungle on the Bhutan-Indian border and to pay tribute to His Majesty the 4th King of Bhutan for his wise leadership.

On a clear day witness a breathtaking view of the eastern Himalayas and opt for a hike to nearby hilltop monastery before taking late lunch at Dochula restaurant.

After lunch, continues to drive towards Punakha valley descending through the narrow road.

On arrival to Punakha –check- in the hotel. Overnight stay at Punakha.

Day IV: (Punakha) – Sightseeing

This Chorten holds extraordinary significance being consecrated in 1999& dedicated to the protection of the former Crown Prince-now King Jigme Khesar Namgyal Wangchuck.

You can also pay a visit to the dramatic Punakha Dzong, which formally served as the seat of the government and still the winter residence of the Dratshang (Central Monk Body). This is Bhutan’s most spectacular Dzong and an excellent example of how a medieval fortress and a center of both religious and administrative functions have adapted and evolved for modern day use. Lunch at local Restaurant.

After the lunch pay visit to the Nunery (Sangchen Dorji Lhundrup Choeling Buddhist College for Nuns. It’s worth to visit. Overnight stay at Punakha.

DAY V: (Drive to Phobjikha Valley)
