The tour starts with a scenic flight to Paro Airport. On a clear morning, Mount Everest would be breathtaking to see. You will be welcomed at the airport terminal by a representative of Trekkers Paradise Pvt. Ltd., who will then accompany you to the hotel. Then drive to the capital of Bhutan, Thimphu.
Visit the National Memorial Chorten, which was erected in Lt. His Majesty the King’s honor by the Royal Queen Mother, in the afternoon. And then head to the Buddha viewpoint for a bird’s-eye perspective of Thimphu. After visiting the nation’s legislative building, Tashihchodzong, in the evening, wander through the Royal Palace.
Early in the day, visit Changangkha Lhakhang, Motithang (the country’s national animal), and The Takin Preserve Center. Later, ascend to Dochula Pass (10,000 feet), from where you may enjoy a stunning view of the Eastern Himalayan range on a sunny, clear day. Drive to Punakha after lunch and visit the Punakha Dzong. It is a place of great happiness and bliss. We also explore Wangdue’s local markets, which are well-known for their handicrafts and goods made of wood.
You will drive back to Thimphu today, stop to have a stroll in the Tibetan refugee settlement of Hontsho, and learn about the lifestyle and culture of the locals. We will also visit Hong Tsho Goemba, an ancient monastery built in 1786. The monastery serves as the home and school of monks and nuns. The interior of the monastery is rich with historic and artistic thangka on the walls. The vibrant paintings of Buddhist Gurus and lotuses add splendor to this already wonderful location. If you want to spend some time in tranquility away from the crowds, visit this cute small shrine on top of a hill.
Then continue on to Paro for the overnight stay.
After an early breakfast, we will climb to the well-known Taktshang Monastery (Tiger’s Nest Monastery), a century-old symbol of Bhutanese culture. Bhutan’s most famous cultural landmark, Taktshang Monastery (Tiger’s Nest), sits 800 meters (2640 feet) on a seemingly steep cliff. Despite being brutally and unexpectedly destroyed by fire in April 1998, it has now been brought back to its former splendor. The second Buddha, Guru Rinpoche/Padmasambhava, is said to have flown to the location of the current monastery in the eighth century on the back of a tigress to dispel the local demon.
Once you’ve returned from Taktshang Monastery, you can explore Paro Dzong and the local market.
Today marks the end of your tour in Bhutan. You will be transferred to Paro International Airport according to your flight itinerary, which is typically early in the morning. You will fly from Paro to your country or Kathmandu by Druk Air while enjoying beautiful views of the eastern Himalayan range and the high plains of Tibet.
Once your trip is complete, our representative will transfer you from the airport to the appropriate accommodations. If you have a few extra days, you can take advantage of Nepal’s tranquil Himalayan air or embark on another exciting trip to Nepal with us.

Which is the best time to visit Bhutan?
October to December is the ideal time to visit Bhutan as the air is clean and fresh with sunny skies. January and February are colder, but from then until April the climate remains dry and pleasant and in late spring the famous rhododendrons bloom spectacularly, flooding the valleys with colour.
Where is Bhutan?
Bhutan is a small, landlocked country situated in the eastern Himalayas between China and India. Its landscape ranges from Subtropical plains and forests in the south to subalpine forests and the snowy Himalayas in the North. Bhutan is a principally Buddhist country and it is recognized as the last stronghold of Mahayana Buddhism.
Do I need a visa to enter Bhutan?
All foreign tourists planning to visit Bhutan require a visa that must be pre-arranged through the Bhutan government. Visa formalities will be assisted by Trekkers Paradise. We must submit the visa application to the Bhutan government at least 1 week before you go. You will be granted a paper visa here, which will be stamped in your passport once you arrive in Paro. We’ll need a clear scan copy of your passport for the visa application.
How much does the visa cost?
The visa fee for foreign travelers is US$ 40. The fee can be paid in advance to your tour operator or travel agent. For Indian Passport (or VIC) holders, Bangladeshi nationals, and people from the Maldives, there is no cost incurred.
Do I need to use a tour operator to book my travel?
Yes, it is Bhutanese government regulation that you must use a licensed Bhutanese Tour operator in order to book your tour to Bhutan or one of their international associates. All of those services and details will be arranged by Trekkers Paradise.
Can I travel independently in Bhutan?
Unfortunately, it is not possible to travel to Bhutan independently (except for Indians, Bangladeshis, and Maldivians). Westerners must hire a tour company to get their visas to Bhutan approved. Not only that but once you’re in Bhutan, you’re not allowed to roam freely between cities – only with your tour guide.
How do I get to Bhutan?
You can either fly or enter the country overland. Flying is the most usual way to get to Bhutan, but you should be aware that the country only has one international airport, which is located in Paro, about an hour outside of Thimphu.
Bhutan is served by only three airlines: Druk Air, Bhutan Airlines, and Buddha Air (just charter flights). Only Nepal, India, Bangladesh, and Thailand are available for flights to Bhutan. Seasonal departure points include Malaysia and Indonesia.
Are there any altitude problems in Bhutan?
There are no altitude problems at all in Bhutan. The Chele La (Chele Pass, la means pass in Dzongkha) is the highest motorable point in Bhutan, sitting 3,988 meters (13,083 ft) above sea level, between the Haa and Paro valleys.
What does the minimum daily package include?
Bhutan charges all foreign tourists (with the exception of Indian citizens) a $200 to $250 daily fee to visit. (The price varies based on whether you are visiting in the low season or high season.) Depending on what you have planned, you may need extra permits for trekking or visiting more remote parts of the country. Also, this cost includes US$ 65.00 Per Day as a Royalty that goes towards free education, free healthcare, and poverty alleviation. All of those services and details will be arranged by your tour operator.
Of the daily fee, $50 goes to your three-star hotel booking. Should you want a more luxurious hotel – four or five-stars – you could ask for it, but you will need to pay for the daily difference in price.
What’s the food like in Bhutan?
A wide range of western and Indian cuisine is also accessible in many of the restaurants across the country. The most unique feature of Bhutanese cuisine is its sharp taste. Chillis are an important ingredient of nearly every plate and are considered so essential that most Bhutanese people would not enjoy a meal that was not spicy.
How safe is Bhutan?
Bhutan is a very safe country to visit, crime is uncommon, even petty crime! The country has no traffic lights, there are traffic wardens instead and the locals love it. The production and sale of tobacco are illegal, as are hunting and fishing (except for catch and release).
