Highlights of the Trip

The only International Airport in the country will be your final destination before you step on  the land of the ‘Thunder Dragon’ Kingdom, now globally referred to as Bhutan. A common sight is the snowcapped mountains, beautiful tiny hills, scattered and clustered settlement of farm houses in the centre of the terraced farmland or around the paddy fields. If it’s during the fall season, be prepared for the fresh cold breeze, during the spring time, expect a warm beautiful sunshine greeting you.

Day 1: Descend Paro International Airport
Finally you have reached your destination. Your host from Of Divine Hills and Valleys would be there to greet you  at the exit of the Druk Air complex. You would then be driven to Thimphu, the heart of the nation with a population of over 50,000 plus. Your schedule for the day would be a  visit to the 13 Bhutanese crafts school, where you would get an exposure to the origin and purposes of the crafts. You would also get an insight in to the actual hands on experience, by being able to see the students get on with their tasks of engaging in different crafts such as sculpturing, tailoring, painting, embroidery and weaving to name a few crafts being learnt in this school.

Next destination is the visit to the majestic Tashichho Dzong, which is also the main administrative house of the country.

Later in the evening, explore and enjoy a leisure walk through the Thimphu town and check out the urban lifestyle of the Bhutanese.

Day 2: Thimphu to Paro
Your day will start with a visit to the National Textile Museum which has a collection of textiles from all over the country woven by different women for different occasions. The essence of visiting the textile museum is to observe how weaving has been a part of Bhutanese life. You would notice that the textiles are beautiful, woven with  multi coloured  and different types of threads such as pure silk, raw silk, wool and  cotton with intricate designs.

Then drive to Paro, the heavenly valley which is home to 1/4th of the country’s population and  proudly claims of having quite a number of ancient, remarkable monasteries and temples as compared to many other regions of Bhutan. Paro also grows the maximum amount of the red rice which is considered to be having a high fibre nutritious content.

Paro valley is blessed with the gigantic Mt. Jhumo-Lhari which stands proudly at an altitude of 7300 meters at the northern  end of the valley whose glacier water forms  the river of the valley known as Pa-chu (water of Paro).

Overnight  at Paro

Day 3: Paro to Tiger’s Den
Either with a picnic lunch or lunch scheduled at the base cafeteria of the Tiger’s Den, you will hike up the Taktshang trails to enjoy the mysteriously located monastery on the rocky cliffs.

Night halt at Paro
