Day by Day

  • Day 01 Arrive in Paro International Airport, Paro

After exciting approach through Bhutanese foothills we land at the tiny airstrip in the beautiful Paro Valley [we recommend you to take left hand side seat of the plane for the most spectacular views]. In Paro you will meet your Bhutanese Guide and transfer to Thimphu.

      We will then drive to Thimphu [1 hour]. We will occasionally stop for beautiful sights on the way. When you reach Thimphu, you will perhaps realize that the city is not what most people think it to be like. This is simply because it is different from the other cities. It is perhaps the only capital city in the world without any traffic lights. In fact there were no cars in Thimphu till 1962. Overnight at the Hotel in Thimpu. Evening free walk in Thimphu.
