Bhutan travel package - itinerary

Day 1: Kathmandu to Paro by flight
The mythical dream-like kingdom comes into view as the aircraft swings in giant arcs and descends onto Bhutan's only airstrip at Paro. This beautiful valley with its rich terraced farmland is home to some of the Bhutan's oldest temples and monasteries. On arrival you will be met by our local representative and transferred to your hotel. Later this evening stroll around the local Paro market. Overnight stay at the Hotel.

Day 2: Paro - Sightseeing
Breakfast in morning then we will visit the perfectly symmetrical Rinpung Dzong, built in 1646 by Shabdrung Ngwang Namgyal, the first spiritual and temporal ruler of Bhutan. Also will be visiting the Ta Dzong - situated on the hill side, is the castle-shaped, one time watch tower built to defend Rinpung Dzong during inter-valley wars of the 17th Century, now holds the National Museum.

Later in the day we will be taken on an excursion tour, about eighteen kilometers from Paro town on south side of the valley to the burnt ruins of Drugyel Dzong (victorious fortress). It was from this monastery that the Bhutanese repelled several invading Tibetan armies during the 17th Century. Overnight stay at the Hotel.

Day 3: Paro/Thimphu - Drive
This morning we will depart Paro by surface for the capital of the kingdom, Thimphu. Enroot visiting the 17th Century Simtokha Dzong on a lofty ridge, built in 1627, the oldest in the land, houses the school for Buddhist studies. Overnight stay at the Hotel.

Day 4: Thimphu - Sightseeing
This morning we set out on a sightseeing tour of perhaps the most unusual capital in the world is a bustling town on the banks of its own river and gloriously in the hills of its own valley - is the centre of government, religion and commerce.

Visit the Tashichho Dzong on the bank of the river, the main secretarial building which houses the throne room of His Majesty the King of Bhutan. Next to the Dzong is Bhutan's only golf course, a nine hole circuit that is far more picturesque than its testing. The Thangka painting school, in the heart of Thimphu is worth visiting, National Liberary, Traditional Medicine Institute and the handicraft Emporium. Overnight stay at the Hotel

Day 5: Thimphu/Punakha - Drive
This morning we continue on our drive to Punakha, the road winds up from Simtokha Dzong into the pine forest and through small villages for 20 kilometers and then opens miraculously onto the northern ridge of the mountains. The view over the Himalayan panoply at Dorchula Pass at 10,500 feet is one of the most spectacular in all Bhutan.

Punakha served as the capital of Bhutan until 1955. In the evening stroll around the town. Overnight stay at the Hotel.

Day 6: Punakha/Wangduephodrang/Punakha - Excursion
This morning we will visit the Punakha Dzong, strategically built at the junction of the two rivers in the 17th Century by the first Shabdrung to serve as the religious and administrative centre. It also houses sacred temples including the Marchen where the embalmed body of Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal lies in state. The Dzong has been fully restored by the present King.

Later in the day we continue on our excursion to Wangduephodrang - is the last town on the central highway. A visit to the Dzong, is the town's most visible feature, played a critical role in unifying the western, central and southern Bhutanese districts.

Testimonials

Two weeks holiday in Nepal with Mission Eco-Trek

My wife and I took a 2 week tour in Nepal with Mission Eco-Trek in Feb 2011 and had a fantastic time. Mission Eco-Trek provided the very highest caliber guides and Ram Kumar (the proprietor) personally made sure that everything went smoothly. When storms caused our original flights to be cancelled and then cancelled for a second time, he graciously accommodated our changes at no extra cost. The cost was reasonable and the services provided were exceptional -even beyond what we had expected from the contract....

Namaste!
