Trip Facts

Duration : 9 Days Program Type : tours Trek Grade : Grade 1:

Trekking is essentially day hiking and doesn't require any special training. However, good physical condition, a love of walking, and a desire to enjoying the spectacular views of the mountains and encounter village life are essential. We offer a diverse range of easy treks. Categorising a trek as easy means that no difficult climbing or ascents to high altitudes are involved, they take usually no more than a week and are suitable for anyone. Be assured that a loss of altitude in no way means a loss of interesting things to see and experience. While our more challenging treks get you closer to a small number of mountain ranges, lower altitude treks often provide better viewpoints from which to enjoy the colourful horizons of a whole series of ranges. The duration of a trek can be from 4 to 9 days with an average of 4 to 5 hours walking per day.

Overview

8 Nights 9 Days Bhutan Tour

Day 1 Paro Airport

After clearing immigration and customs procedures 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 Resturant for lunch.

This afternoon you will pay the 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 there in the museum, drive down to the Dzong where you will see the traditional architecture of the building, and you will have a ba 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 clear day views of the 7316 meters, domed snow peak of sacred Mt. Jhomolhari can be seen. Overnight Paro valley

Day 2 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 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 longer 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 clear day view Bhutanese, used to repel the Tibetan invaders again and again.
