Western Bhutan Tour (8 days)

Western Bhutan Tour (8 days) is tour program designed in such a way that when you  travel or tour in Bhutan one can experience the gift of Western Bhutan with beautiful mountains and valleys. It offers stunning scenery with golden paddy fields cascading down the magnificent mountains, the pristine rivers flowing through the main towns of Paro, Thimphu and Punakha, and unique two-story houses displaying rich traditional paintings and architectural designs.

Thimphu is Bhutan’s capital city with a population of around 100,000 people. It is also Bhutan’s largest city. The city’s main thoroughfare is lined with shops, restaurants, and public buildings, and the rest of the city comprises apartments, small home, and family-owned stores. All buildings are built in traditional style featuring Buddhist motifs, lending a unique air to the city that attracts travelers of all kinds.

The surrounding valley has been the site of small settlements for centuries, but the area only began to truly develop after it was named the new capital in the early 1960’s. The city is home to numerous cultural attractions, including monasteries, museums, government buildings, botanical gardens, and traditional art centers as well as bustling weekend markets.

Paro is another important town of western Bhutan. Just outside of the town, visitors can find the famous Tiger’s Nest hermitage, built on a sheer cliff face. It is believed that the father of Bhutanese Buddhism flew to the cliff on the back of a tigress; therefore Buddhists consider the hermitage highly sacred. Also in the valley are the ruins of Drugyal Dzong, large fortress-monastery that was partially destroyed by fire in the early 1950’s.

Paro is the home of Bhutan’s international airport, and the area features a number of fascinating architectural relics including a fifteenth century temple and the Ugyen Perli Palace.
