Day 01: Arrival at Paro International Airport and Drive to Thimphu

Upon arrival at Paro, NBM representatives will greet you and transfer you to our private vehicle to drive to Thimphu. It will take around an hour to arrive in Thimpu on the drive. The breathtaking view of Paro valley and surrounding mountains keeps you enticed throughout the driveway.
After arriving at Thimpu, you will check into a luxury hotel, where you can refresh and rest to get rid of tiredness due to the early morning flight. At lunchtime, you will have your lunch in the hotel itself and get ready for sightseeing in the town. You will visit the following amazing sites today.
At the main Paro-Thimphu highway, Tachogang Lhakhang is an arty-crafty monastery in the Paro district. Thankthong Gyelpo built the monastery after a vision of Guru Rimpocchhe, Amitaba, and Avalokiteshvara near the site. Today, descendants of Thangtong Gyalpo look after the monastery’s welfare. The key highlight of the temple is the master’s relics, alongside his walking stick.
H.M. Jigme, Bhutan’s third king built the National Memorial Chorten to represent world peace and prosperity. Unfortunately, he was unable to complete a monument in his lifetime. The Royal Family and Cabinet gave shape to his idea later in Jigme’s memory after his untimely demise in 1972. Today, the monument represents eternal peace and harmony.
Exploring the monument provides you with a sense of tranquility and delights you with its charming and colorful architecture.
At the northern edge of Thimphu, The Tashichho Dzong is a fortress and a typical Buddhist monastery on the bank of the Wang Chu River. The Dzong was historically used to be the seat of the Dharma Raja of Bhutan. Today, it serves as the seat of the Bhutanese government. The key highlight of Tashichho Dzong is the throne room and the offices of the king. The vibrant garden with beautiful flower species and manicured lawns on the site also adds to its beauty.

You will start your day by relishing breakfast. Today, you will visit the beautiful statues in the city of Thimphu, before driving back to Paro in the evening.

Next, we will visit the Motithang Takin Preserve, which is a wildlife reserve that is home to Bhutan’s national animal – the takin.
Motithang Takin Preserve was originally built as a mini zoo before it was transformed into a preserve for Takin. The preserve was once shut down to set the animals free, however, Takins were not ready to leave the place. So, it was reopened again.
Visiting the reserve, you will have the opportunity to observe these majestic animals up close and learn about their unique behavior and creation.
