What To Expect:
Bhutan Travel Tour Highlights
Those searching for a comprehensive journey in Bhutan should find that this program exceeds their expectations, as it allows ample time to explore not only the well-known highlights but many of the lesser-known attractions, as well. After arriving in Paro, transfer overland to Thimpu for two nights and thorough touring of Bhutan’s capital city. From Thimpu, drive over the Dochula Pass to Tongsa, a trip that affords numerous opportunities to tour central Bhutan and its stunning Himalayan valleys. After one night in Tongsa, continue to Jakar, where a full day excursion from a Swiss guesthouse will take you to Kunzandra and Pesiling Monasteries, the Ura Valley, and a number of smaller temples. Next, head to Gangtay, where the rare black-necked crane makes its home; two nights here offers plenty of time to walk around this charming village where the largest Nyingmapa monastery is located. Finally, head to Paro for a final two-night stay; in Paro, spend a full day with a private guide visiting the most important dzongs, including Taktsang, Sangdo Phelri, Drukgyal, Ta Dzong, and Rimpung.
