Discover Western Bhutan, Paro and Tigers Nest. West Bhutan is home to the capital Thimphu, the Paro Valley where you can hike to Tigers Nest. Your first glimpse of this beautiful country is the beautiful Paro valley, the star attraction of Bhutan. This fertile valley thrives under the shadow of the highest peak in the country and presents countless sights and attractions that leave you speechless. Just beyond the valley lies the most popular man-made spectacle of the country, the Tiger’s Nest Monastery. Ranking among the most sacred pilgrimage sites, this monastery is located on the cliff face at the height of 3000 meters and can only be reached by a challenging hike through the mountainside.
Back in the city, the Paro Museum is the perfect place to understand Bhutan’s history and culture. The local food, the lack of modern excess and the absence of fast-paced lifestyles all play a part in making you fall for the country and its beautiful culture. Try to visit Bhutan between the months of October to March, for this is when those black-necked birds make their annual journey and congregate in the Phobjikha Valley. The country celebrates their arrival with the colorful Black-Necked Crane Festival, a spectacle worth watching.
For an entirely new experience, visit Thimpu, the capital of Bhutan. Steeped in history, Thimpu’s alleys and streets are cultural jewels, allowing you to jump into the wonders of an ancient culture, see its Shamanic rituals, watch folk dances and enjoy the stunning beauty of rare Himalayan blooms. Thimpu also hosts many of the country’s wellness and meditation facilities, luxurious havens that have gained popularity all around the world for their mental and spiritual healing courses.
