Glimpse of Bhutan 4 Nights / 5 days Tour

This tour is designed for shorter visits to Bhutan. It is perfect for travelers with limited time and a limited budget. The itinerary features visits to scenic Paro and historic Thimphu, the vibrant capital of Bhutan and home of the King.

Day 01: Arrival at Paro.
Your flight to Paro can be from any of these entry points Calcutta/Bangkok/Kathmandu/Dhaka/Delhi or depending on one’s international flight connection. Via road from India and enter the southern part of Bhutan. When you are about to land at Paro you will be introduced to the spectacular beauty of our country.

The representative from Bhutan Footprints *Travel will escort you to the hotel. After lunch, visit the National Museum (watch Tower). This museum has a very interesting assortment of costumes, treasures and world-renowned stamps, and will bring alive the history of Bhutan since the 6th century. Visit Paro Dzong (Fort), Headquarter of Paro District. Altitude: 2250 meters.

Day 02 : Hike to Tiger Nest and drive to Thimphu. (Alternative for old person)
Built on the seemingly impossible cliff at a height of 400 meters above the lush valley floor of Paro is one of the most sacred places in Bhutan. Guru Rinpoche, the second Buddha, flew here on a flaming Tigress for the second visit to Bhutan and meditated here in the 8th century. Here he propagated Vajrayana- Mahayana Buddhism (Bigger Wheel) that was prophesied by the Buddha at the time of attaining Nirvana.
In April 1998, a fire destroyed the main structure of the buildings and the religious contents. A complete restoration was done and resulted in a carbon copy of the original. This place beholds the history of The Hidden Land. The return walking time is approximately five hours (if you have a permit to the site). Otherwise, around 3- 4 hours is enough to make round trip to the viewpoint.

In the evening drive to Thimphu, 2 hours through winding roads following the Pa-Chu (Paro River) down stream to its confluence with the Wang-Chu (Thimphu River). There are good views of the forests, Rocky Mountains & scattered village on our route. As we enter the Thimphu valley we will pass through Semtokha Dzong built in 1629 by Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyel (The man who unified Bhutan). Now Semtokha houses the language and cultural school where scholars of all the ages study Dzongkha (National Language). Thimphu altitude 2350 m, Driving time: 2 hours.

Day 03 : Full day sightseeing (lots of hike depends on one’s interest)
In morning visit to Changangkha monastery (Temple), which was built in 12th century, the viewpoint where we can get a birds eye view of the capital Thimphu. Visit the animal sanctuary home of the Takin our National animal, and then visit the Nunnery, which is NGO in the Kingdom.

After lunch, some highlight visits will be the Textile Museum, Folk heritage museum and Bhutanese traditional handmade paper factory.
