When travelling in Bhutan your guide will travel with you from arrival to departure. All meals are included all sightseeing and entrance fees. When travelling longer distances by car, your lunch will be taken en route at some lovely small guesthouses or village restaurants, and what lovely food they serve. My favourite became Ema Dachi (chillies & cheese).
This Tour features the following locations
DELHI: The largest mosque, the biggest temple, honky auto-rickshaws; it’s easy to distinguish Delhi. The city has been at the centre of the Indian civilisation for centuries and a major seat of power ever since the Mughals built their capital here. Modern Delhi presents a mix of colonial-era architecture, Mughal forts, and mausoleums, ancient bazaars, glitzy malls and world class restaurants. It often feels overwhelming, but given a chance, it always grows onto you. Be sure to visit Humayun’s Tomb, a 16th-century Mughal wonder inspired by the iconic Taj Mahal and Lodi Gardens, the best spot for sunsets in Delhi. There’s also the Hauz Khas Village, a throbbing hub that gained popularity with its Open Nights when those narrow alleys are transformed into cultural wonders, adorned with lights and decorated with streamers. There really is no better place to discover Delhi’s rich culture and mingle with its locals.
THIMPHU: As the modern-day capital of one of the dreamiest destinations on the planet, Thimphu often looks like it’s confused about whether to hold onto that small-town feel or give into cosmopolitan excess. Only recently did the capital see a huge surge in the number of vehicles in the city, something that was literally unheard of mere years ago. Rush hour can be a bit chaotic, but this unique mix of old and new is exactly what makes Thimphu so intoxicating, so different from the rest of the country. This is perhaps the best place where you can club old-world charms such as traditional Buddhist monasteries and several museums to modern-day nightclubs and restaurants and watch Bhutan ushering itself into the modern era. Shopping, however, is quite limited and restricted to certain handmade souvenirs and handicrafts.
PUNAKHA: Located in a stunning valley at the junction of Pho Chhu and Mo Chhu Rivers, Punakha feels like a slice of paradise, as if it’s been wrapped in a time capsule and left alone to be preserved for all eternity. Punakha Dzong, perhaps the most beautiful building of Bhutan, is located here, as are countless orange groves, orchards, rice fields and roughly 1/5th of the world’s population of the endangered white-bellied heron. In addition to its magnificent architecture, Punakha Dzong is known as the site of King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck’s wedding and the final resting place of the sacred relic called Ranjung Karsapani.
PARO: Paro, the gateway to the Kingdom of Bhutan, is a city that is full of love, romance, splendour, valour, courage and natural beauty. It’s rich and colourful history often has a way of enthralling you through sacred sites, historical artefacts and artworks and being in the midst of nature also makes you lose complete track of time. The Main Street is where you get to see all the action. Beautifully carved wooden storefronts sell a variety of goods while restaurants attract visitors with authentic dishes and mouth-watering aromas. Popular attractions include the National Museum, Taktsang Monastery and Thongdroel.
