    Day 2Thimphu

    AGV

    In the morning, head to the National Institute for Zorig Chusum, where you can catch a glimpse of apprentices honing their skills and knowledge in 13 traditional arts and crafts of Bhutan. Be blown away by the creativity within the school as you try your hand at traditional panting, guided by an art mentor. Next, visit the Folk Heritage Museum to discover the traditional Bhutanese lifestyle in the olden days. Make a stop at the local post office, where you can get your personalised family postage stamps. Continue to a Weaving Centre to witness this traditional art. Later, enjoy afternoon tea with handmade cookies at Amankora Resort before visiting the National Memorial Chorten, a stupa built to honour the late 3rd King, His Majesty Jigme Dorji Wangchuck. Hop over to Mothithang Takin Preserve, a wildlife reserve for Takin, the national animal of Bhutan. Find out why the Takin has been declared a national animal! Proceed to an authentic Bhutanese crafts bazaar and Norzin Lam Street, where you may purchase handicrafts, garments and accessories at your own expense

    Day 3Thimphu – Punakha

    AGV

    Depart Thimphu and continue to Punakha. Cross Dochula Pass and visit the Druk Wangyal Chortens, a construction of 108 chortens commissioned by the eldest Queen Mother, Her Majesty Ashi Dorji Wangmo Wangchuk. Enjoy spectacular views of The Himalayas if the weather is clear. Along the way, stop at Sopsokha Village and stroll through the rice fields to Chimi Lhakhang, a pilgrimage site for childless couples. Thereafter, visit Punakha Dzong, situated at the confluence of the Mo Chhu and Pho Chhu rivers.

    Day 4Punakha – Paro

    AGV

    This morning, make your way back to Paro, home to many old Bhutanese monasteries. Visit a local family home, try traditional butter tea and experience the locals’ simple living and exceptional hospitability – an especially educational encounter for children. Thereafter, visit the 7th century Kyichu Lhakhang, the oldest temple in Bhutan. End the day with a visit to Drugyel Dzong, the victory fortress built in 1646 by Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal to commemorate his victory over Tibetan invaders led by Mongolian warlord Gushri Khan in 1644.

    Day 5Paro

    AGV

    Visit Ta Dzong, which houses a fascinating collection of costumes, art, religious paintings, relics, national stamps and handicrafts. Next, head to Rinpung Dzong, built in 1645 to defend the valley against Tibetan invaders but now an administration centre and school for monks as well as host to the annual spring festival. Bhutan is a Buddhist kingdom, and many families place boys as young as 5 years old within monasteries because they cannot afford to feed them or pay for the uniforms and textbooks required in government-run schools. After breakfast, visit a monk school and learn about how Buddhism has affected the country’s daily life, educational system and its emphasis on family and religion. Children can take part in the lighting of butter lamps to gain merit for the whole family. Next, have a go at archery, the national sport of Bhutan! Your guide will set up the targets before teaching you the rules and how to correctly hold the bow. Enjoy a fun afternoon engaging in some healthy competition with your family. End the day with a family photoshoot session and capture the memories of your Bhutan holiday with us. Feel free to dress up in the traditional Gho or Kira for an Insta-worthy photoshoot!

    Tiger Nest, Bhutan

    AGV

    Early this morning, hike to Bhutan’s most iconic landmark, Taktsang Lhakhang: the Tiger’s Nest Monastery. The monastery clings precariously to a granite cliff 800 metres above the Paro Valley; legend has it the great guru Rinpoche Padmasambhava flew to this spot on the back of a tigress. The monastery was first built in 1692 at a cave in which the guru meditated in the 7th century A.D. Thereafter, spend the rest of the day at leisure. You may wish to enjoy a relaxing hot stone bath or head to the main street of Paro to pick up some souvenirs at your own expense.

    Note

    Please wear comfortable walking shoes for your hike to Taktsang Lhakhang. This hike is not recommended for pregnant women and travellers with pre-existing health conditions.
