05 DAYS BHUTAN ESCAPADE
Trip code:
BH-DXE5
Departure: Daily
picture of bhutan A trip to Bhutan normally begins and ends in Paro. Located at an altitude of 2200m above sea level, Paro is home to the National Museum and watch tower to one of the oldest and most celebrated dzongs of Bhutan. The town is full of legends, heroism and natural splendour and recorded many events which marked the beginning of great cultural heritage of the country.

We also make a day trip to Bhutan’s capital Thimphu, scenically situated on a hillside and on the bank of the Thimphu River.

Day 01  FLIGHT TO /BANGKOK
Upon arrival, own transfer to Novotel Hotel for the night (connected to the airport ).
Day 02 BANGKOK/PARO (L,D)
Own transfer to the airport.
Fly Bangkok/Paro KB 121 0550/0900 - 1-stop in Calcutta  
On a clear day the panoramic view of the Himalayas are sensational including the Mount Everest, but particularly exciting is the approach through the Bhutanese foothills and the landing, including a few steep turns to land at the tiny airstrip of Paro.
(NOTE: Try and get the left hand seat for better view of the Himalayas)
Met on arrival and transfer to your hotel. Paro is the only international gateway into Bhutan and is a lovely valley, which in spring, is blessed with lovely cherry blossoms. At 2200m, its advisable to take the rest of the day easy. Take a stroll in town and soak in the atmosphere of this mysterious dragon kingdom.
Day 03 PARO - THIMPHU (B,L,D
Leaving Paro, we drive about 2 hours to Thimphu, the capital of Bhutan. Though the biggest "city" in Bhutan, Thimphu is like a village compared to most other Asian countries. All buildings retain the traditional architectural design and on the streets, men & women folks still dressed in traditional gho (their national costume). We explore the capital today, visiting the memorial chorten, the national hospital, the national library and take a walk along the streets of Thimphu before returning to Paro in the afternoon.
Day 04 PARO (B,L,D
This morning, we make an excursion to Taksang Monastery - this has to be the monastery with the most outstanding setting in Bhutan. Set on a vertical cliff face 800 m above the ground, it defies all engineering logic. For the energetic, hike 2 hours up to get a more dramatic view of the monastery. In the afternoon, we tour the Paro Museum and the Drukyel ruin.
Day 05 PARO/BANGKOK/DEPARTURE (B  
Our memorable tour concludes today with a transfer to the airport for your flight.
Fly Paro/Bangkok KB 120 1110/1610 - 1-stop in Calcutta
