Duration : 3 Nights / 4 Days
Places to Visit : Paro - Thimphur
Route Map 

Day 1 : Paro
Fly into Himalayas with Druk Air, Bhutan's National Air Carrier. The green wall of hills known as doors, or gateways into Bhutan from the plains climbs continually higher as the plane flies north towards the Tibetan border. Silvery rivers thread the valleys, waterfalls plunge down the forested mountainsides, and to the north, the great snowcapped peaks of the inner Himalayas rise up into the sky. As the aircraft enters the Paro valley, look down and you will see the Paro Dzong overlooking Paro Chu (river) with Ta Dzong, watch tower, now the National museum, above it.. After completion of airport formalities, you will drive through fascinating valley of Paro to the hotel. Evening visit to Paro market and take a stroll through town's main street. Dinner and overnight at the hotel in Paro.
Besides, the Bhutanese monks read and write the ancient variant of the Tibetan language known as chhokey. If you think that comparison is enough then you are wrong as you will be surprised to know that the Bhutanese people are also physically similar to the Tibetans. However, historians have no concrete evidence as of when they crossed over the Himalayas and settled in the south-draining valleys of Bhutan.

Day 2 : Paro - Thimphu
After breakfast in the hotel, drive to Drukgyel Dzong, a ruined fortress where Bhutanese warriors fought Tibetan invaders centuries ago. The snowy dome of sacred Chomolhari, "mountain of goddess" looms directly over the dzong. Along the way, see the 7th century Kyichu Lhakhang, one of the 108 temples built in the Himalayas by Tibetan King, Songtsen Gampo. This temple reflects the introduction of Buddhism in Bhutan After lunch, visit to Ta Dzong, originally built as watch tower, now houses National Museum of the Kingdom. It boasts antique thangkha, textiles, weapons & armour, household objects and a rich assortment of natural and historic artifacts. Then walk down the trail to visit Rinpung Dzong, meaning fortress of the heap of jewels' which has a long and fascinating history. Along the wooden galleries lining the courtyard of the Rinpung Dzong are fine wall paintings illustrating Buddhist lore such as four friends, the old man of long life, the wheel of life, scenes from the of Milarepa, Mount Sumeru and other cosmic mandala. After that proceed to Thimphu, the capital town of Bhutan.The road leads through the Paro valley to the confluence of Paro and Thimphu rivers at chuzom ( confluence ). Three differrent style of chortens adorn the confluence. A short way beyond, on the left, is Tschogang Lhakhang, the temple of the hill of excellent horse. It is private temple, built in 15th century, as the result of visitation from Balaha, the excellent horse, a manifestation of Chenrezig, the compassionate Buddha. After the narrow, rock lined section of the road opens up as Thimphu approaches, Simtokha Dzong lies enroute. Simtokha means the place of profound tantric teaching', this dzong now houses a school for the study of the Dzongkha language. On arrival in Thimphu, check into the hotel.

Day 3 : Thimphu - Paro
After breakfast, sightseeing of Thimphu valley includes, visit to National Library, a treasure trove of priceless Buddhist manuscripts ; the Traditional Medicine Institute, where centuries old healing arts such as acupuncture and herbal remedies are still practised; the Painting School, where young monks learn the art of Buddhist thangkhas, and the mask maker workshop. There are also workshop for fine metal craft, weaving, ceramics and paper making. Afternoon, visit to Tashichhodzong, "fortress of the glorious dharma". It is the centre of government and religion, site of King's Throne room National Assembly hall, and seat of Je Khenpo or Chief Abbot. Built in 1641 by the political and religious unifier of Bhutan, Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal, it was reconstructed in 1961 in traditional Bhutanese manner, without nails or architectural plans. Also visit King's Memorial Chorten continuously circumbulated by His Late Majesty's subjects, spinning prayer wheels and murmuring mantras.Then, visit Handicrafts Emporium and local shops if you like to browse through examples of Bhutan's fine traditional arts.
