The Sights – Experience the magnificence of the famous “Tiger’s Nest” and surround yourself with the natural beauty of the Himalayas

Geographically, Bhutan is nestled between China and India but with a population under a million, the country feels something of an anomaly. Famous for its sacred Buddhist sites, Thimpu will be your first stop. The capital of Bhutan is a unique fusion of modern development and ancient traditions. Discover local marketplaces selling traditional crafts and Bhutanese arts, witness the beauty of the 16th-century Pangri Zampa—Bhutan’s oldest monastery—where you’ll have the unique opportunity to interact with local monks, tickle your tastebuds with lunch at a local eatery and experience breathtaking views over Thimpu Valley from Buddha Point – which is also home to the largest Buddha statue in the country.
Journey through dense forest, past views of the towering Himalayan peaks and over the high mountain pass of Dochula to Punakha. Visit one of the oldest villages in Bhutan—in a secluded corner of quaint Punakha Valley-fringed by terraced rice, maize and buckwheat fields and be transported back in time with traditional architecture and an old-world way of life that remains today. Hike through fields of chilies, cabbages and other vegetables and witness the grand structures and temples of Sangchhen Dorji Lhuendrup Lhakhang nunnery.
Witness the splendor behind Paro Taktsang (a.k.a “Tiger’s Nest)”—one of the most famous Bhutanese monasteries—as it sits peacefully perched on the edge of a cliff, floating 900 meters above Paro Valley. A hike to the top of the cliff is rewarded with a viewing of arguably the country’s most sacred site, visited by all Bhutanese at least once.

Plus, extend your tour with four exciting nights in Nepal (Add on Luxury Kathmandu Trip) where you’ll discover the regal beauty of famous Kathmandu, the spectacular mountainous backdrop of Nagarkot. Throughout the trip Luxury Holidays Nepal offers Luxury accommodation and Luxury Transportation.
