Day 1 - Welcome to Bhutan, Paro airport

Paro International Airport is among the most thrilling airports due to its lofty Himalayan location. If your flight originates from Delhi via Kathmandu, gaze to the plane's left side allows you to witness the grandeur of Everest, Makalu, and Kangchenjunga, three of the world's tallest mountains, along with other mountains.

Pick up from the airport 10-11 am, accommodating to the hotel. Visit the National Museum of Bhutan Ta Dzong. 

Next head to the Rinpung Dzong. Rinpung Dzong is an ancient fortress in traditional Bhutanese architecture with a complex of courtyards, temples, administration offices, and open space surrounded by towering walls. All the buildings are equipped with huge windows with elaborate wooden carvings of traditional Bhutanese motifs. Paro Dzong is considered one of the finest examples of Bhutanese architecture and it’s one of the top tourist attractions in Bhutan.

Day 2 - Acclimatization hike to Tiger's Nest Monastery 3180 m.a.s.l., 5km, 4-5 hours, 900 m ascent

After yoga and breakfast, we will hike the most iconic sight of Bhutan - the Tiger’s Nest Monastery.

Tiger's Nest, also known as Paro Taktsang, is a prominent Buddhist monastery and temple complex situated on the cliffside of the upper Paro Valley in Bhutan. It's one of Bhutan's most iconic landmarks and a significant pilgrimage site for Buddhists.

The monastery is located around 3,120 meters (10,240 ft) above sea level and is known for its stunning architecture and breathtaking location. Legend has it that Guru Padmasambhava (also known as Guru Rinpoche), a revered Buddhist master, meditated in a cave at the site in the 8th century, giving it its spiritual significance.

The name "Tiger's Nest" comes from the legend that Guru Padmasambhava flew to the site on the back of a tigress, which adds to the mystical aura surrounding the monastery. Today, it's a popular tourist destination and a challenging trekking destination for those seeking both spiritual fulfillment and adventure.

If we hike above the Tiger’s Nest monastery to another monastery called Zangdopelri (about 1 hour more hiking) – there is a beautiful lawn outside the monastery to have a Yoga session, overlooking the Paro valley. It’s a beautiful and dramatic spot perched on the cliff above Tiger’s Nest monastery. In the evening traditional hot-stone bath and dinner.

The Kingdom of Bhutan reopened its borders to tourists on September 23, 2022. However, it will do so with a renewed emphasis on the sector’s sustainability. The tourism industry will be revamped, with a focus on three key areas. They are infrastructure and services, tourist travel experiences, and the environmental impact of the sector.

A tourist must pay a tourism levy known as the Sustainable Development Fee of USD 100 per night, which may be revised from time to time by the Competent Authority. The proceeds go toward carbon-neutral activities and the development of a more sustainable tourism sector.

There is one international airport in the country. Regular flights are conducted by the two airlines; Druk Air and Bhutan Airlines.
