Day 1

Paro

Arrival in Bhutan is an event in itself, with the plane sweeping into the country’s only international airport within the Paro Valley, offering a splendid view of the Himalayan mountainsides dotted with traditional Bhutanese houses perched high atop the rocky peaks.

 

Once you’ve landed, our representative will meet you with a white silk scarf embossed with eight lucky symbols, in accordance with Bhutan’s reverence for symbolism to ensure an auspicious start of your journey.

 

The road to Thimphu, the royal capital, takes about fifty minutes amidst the villages and rice fields of the Paro Valley, including the six hundred years old Tamchog Temple.

 

Once in Thimphu, there is no lack of fascinating places to visit, starting with the Dordenma Statue – the largest seated Buddha statue in the world, over 50 meters tall and made of bronze and gilded gold, as well as the Memorial Chorten at the center of the city, dedicated to His Majesty the Third King of Bhutan, or even the Tashichodzong, the Fortress of Auspicious Doctrine, where the royal government houses the throne room and offices of the King.
