Tour Details

There’s nowhere quite like Bhutan. The tiny Buddhist Kingdom, squeezed between India and China, is cautiously embracing modern development guided by the philosophy of Gross National Happiness while still preserving its age-old tradition and ancient culture.

Perfect for discerning travellers with a limited time frame to get away from busy materialistic city life into the pristine natural environment, stunning landscapes and get pampered with Bhutanese hospitality. This 4 Days 3 Nights journey will take you to remote monasteries and encounter the mindful Buddhist way of life that earned the country its nickname ‘Kingdom of Happiness’. On the 2nd day of this trip, you will hike to the famous Paro Taktsang or Tiger’s Nest built on the face of the 800m rock cliff.

Trip Highlights
  • Travel to Paro and Thimphu, the two most developed towns in Bhutan and immerse yourself into the mindful Buddhist way of life, away from the materialistic world, and discover why Bhutan has earned its nickname the ‘Kingdom of Happiness’.
  • Visit ancient temples and magnificent Dzongs (fortresses) and marvel at the fine wall paintings, exquisite architecture and craftsmanship that still continue to influence the Bhutanese architecture today.
  • Hike to an 8th-century sacred site where Bhutan’s iconic landmark, 17th-century Paro Taktsang or Tiger’s Nest is located, perched on the face of a precarious 800m rock cliff.

It displays hundreds of ancient Bhutanese artifacts and artworks including traditional costumes, armour, weaponry and handcrafted implements for daily life. The collection at the National Museum preserves a snap-shot of the rich cultural traditions of the country.

Paro Rinpung Dzong

Rinpung Dzong which literally translates to “fortress of the heap of jewels” was built by Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyel in 1646 and established as the administrative and monastic center of the western region. Today, the Dzong serves as the office of the governor of Paro district and head of the district monk body in Paro. A great annual festival known as Paro Tsechu is held in Rinpung Dzong from the eleventh to the fifteenth day of the second month of the traditional Bhutanese lunar calendar (usually in March or April of the Gregorian calendar). On this occasion, holy images are taken in a procession followed by a series of traditional mask dances conveying religious stories that are performed by monks for five days. After visiting the Dzong, take a short walk to the traditional wooden cantilever bridge called Nemeyzampa, where your driver will be waiting for you.
