    Day 1

    Fly into Paro by Bhutan Airline/Druk Air, Bhutan’s National Airline. The great snow-capped peaks of the inner Himalayas rise up to the heavens can be seen during clear weather. As the plane approaches Bhutan, if you look down farmhouses as dots on the hillsides can be seen.

    After completion of airport formalities, drive to Thimphu, the capital city of Bhutan with around hundred thousand population.

    After arrival to Thimphu visit to Kuensel Phodrang (Buddha Point) to see the huge statue of Buddha Dordenma (8th tallest statue of Buddha in the world) followed by Memorial Stupa built in the memory of late King Druk Gyalpo Jigme Dorji Wangchuk in the year 1974 by Her queen mother Ashi Phuntsho.

    In the evening you will be visiting Tashichho Dzong (Fortress). The massive fortress houses the office of the king and the chief abbot of Bhutan (Jhe-khenpo) along with chebdrel ceremony in the evening


    Overnight: Thimphu



    Day 2

    Morning drive to Punakha. Enroute drive over Dochula pass (3050m) and if the weather is clear, we can view the entire range of Bhutanese Himalayas (left to right): Masagang (7,158m), Tsendagang (6,960m), Terigang (7,060m ), Jejegangphugang (7,158 m ), Kangphugang (7,170m), Zongphugang (7,060 m ), a table mountain that dominates the isolated region of Lunana - finally Gangkar puensum, the highest peak in Bhutan at 7,497m.

    Walk from Dochula to Lamperi Botanical Garden, this is the first botanical park in Bhutan and forms the backdrop of the Dochula Pass. The park forms a biological corridor of 47 square miles (120 km2) between the Jigme Singye Wangchuck National Park and the Jigme Dorji Wangchuck National Park and has a popular botanical garden within it which is spread over an area of 125 acres. The gardens offer a peaceful and relaxing environment to spend a few hours.

    Visit to Punakha Dzong, the Dzong which dominates the valley floor. Before Thimphu was made the capital of Bhutan, Punakha held the title as the winter capital because of its temperate climate. Till today, the old custom of moving from Thimphu to Punakha and back is still followed by the Je Khenpo (Head of Bhutan's religious order) and the monk body. Punakha dzong was strategically built at the confluence of the Phochu (male) and the Mochu (female) rivers by the first Zhabdrung of Bhutan, Ngawang Namgyal in 1637. It has been destroyed by four fires and an earthquake in 1897 and has been frequently devastated by flood water coming from the great northern glaciers. The dzong has now been fully restored to its original splendor.

    Overnight: Punakha




    Day 3

    Morning while sightseeing take a walk of about 15 minutes to Chhimi Lhakhang, the temple of Devine Mad Lama who created the national animal of Bhutan, TAKIN.

    After that drive to Paro a destination its own, entire visit Rinpung dzong which means the “Fortress of the Heap of Jewels“.It is also an architectural wonder, setting the tone for official dzongs throughout the Kingdom and inviting the visitor to wonder at the cultural strength of the Kingdom’s heritage. The dzong was built in 1646. The town of Paro is small with most of the inhabitants living in the valley that surrounds the town. Paro has the highest yielding farmlands in the kingdom. Apart from commanding a slightly elevated strategic point overlooking the longest stretch of the Paro valley, Rinpung dzong is symbolic as the religious and secular centre of all affairs in the valley.
