Day 1 : Arrival in Paro and transfer to Thimphu

Bhutan, the magical Himalayan kingdom, welcomes you. When you arrive at Paro Airport, Our T3 tour team will greet you and provide you with a comfortable transfer to Thimphu, Bhutan's capital. The gorgeous trip of one and a half hours will lead you to a culturally rich metropolis. When you arrive in Thimphu, check into your pre-booked hotel. The remainder of the day is yours to do as you like. There are numerous attractions in Thimphu, and you may do a lot on your own. Take a tour in the surrounding neighbourhoods to learn about Bhutanese culture or dine on traditional cuisine in a restaurant.

In Thimphu, you may enjoy both peaceful traditions and a modern way of life. There are shopping malls, continental restaurants, nightclubs, internet cafés, ATMs, and foreign exchange offices.
Even a few years ago, the term "traffic congestion" was foreign to Bhutan. Thimphu, a city of 100,000 people, still lacks a traffic light. Police officers stand in adorned booths and direct traffic with amazing hand moves.


Bhutan's capital city serves as the country's commercial and administrative centre. It also contains well-known Buddhist sites such as the Memorial Chorten, Cheri Monastery, Tango Monastery, and others. The huge fortress and monastery Tashichho Dzong is a visual treat. Since 1952, it has served as Bhutan's government seat, serving as the King's office, secretariat, and offices for various ministries. Tashichho Dzong's main draw is its gold-leaf roofs, which make it truly unique.
You can also explore traditional products at local marketplaces such as ABC Bazar. If your Bhutan itinerary includes a Sunday, you must visit Thimphu's weekend market. You can buy fresh fruits and vegetables while chatting with the locals.

Stay in a hotel in Thimphu for the night.

Day 2 : Thimphu sightseeing and transfer to Paro

On day 2 of your Bhutan trip package, you will depart for Thimphu for sightseeing. The Institute of Zorig Chusum, National Library, and Textile and Folk Heritage Museum are the day's highlights. The Zorig Chusum Institute teaches pupils 13 varieties of Bhutanese traditional arts and crafts. The programme lasts six years. The National Library houses exquisite Buddhist texts, while the Textile and Folk Heritage Museum showcases Bhutanese culture and traditions.

In the afternoon, you stop for lunch at one of Thimphu's greatest food vendors. After lunch, begin exploring additional landmarks of Bhutan, such as the King's Memorial Chorten, the Government Handicrafts Emporium, and so on.
Chorten Memorial is one of Bhutan's most renowned tourist sites. The milky white structure is a Buddhist shrine. It has a gilded pinnacle and is dedicated to Jigme Dorji Wangchuck, Bhutan's third king. People who sing hymns and spin prayer wheels live at Chorten Memorial.


After your trip in Thimphu for the day, begin your journey to Paro in the evening. When you arrive in Paro, check into your accommodation and relax.

Stay in a hotel in Thimphu for the night.

Day 3 : Paro Sightseeing

You can explore Paro after a nice breakfast. Paro is often regarded as Bhutan's most picturesque destination. The city provides the best of nature in a tranquil setting. The contrast between old timber and concrete structures provides a distinct appeal to the valley as a whole.

The broad and verdant Paro Valley is renowned as Bhutan's historic hub, with many historical and cultural landmarks. Ta Dzong, Rinpung Dzong, and other attractions are among the greatest in Paro. Ta Dzong, commonly known as the National Museum, is a conch-shaped fortification on the Mangde River. Ta Dzong, formerly a watchtower and now a museum, displays antique and traditional objects, paintings, weapons, and so on.

Paro Dzong, also known as Rinpung Dzong (the stronghold of the heap of gems), is located beneath the Ta Dzong. It is adorned with bright paintings reflecting many Bhutanese stories. Rinpung Dzong, built in 1644, serves as the administrative centre for the Paro district.

After lunch, you will continue your sightseeing in Paro by visiting Drukgyel Dzong. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a ruined castle that tells the grim story of warriors who battled alongside Tibetan invaders. You pass through Chomolhari and visit the Kyichu Lhakhang Temple on the way. This is one of Bhutan's oldest Buddhist temples, dating back to the 7th century. The strange splendour of the location draws visitors.
If you have the time and stamina, you can also go to Taktsang Monastery and Cheri Lang Monastery. Takstang Monastery, commonly known as Tiger's Nest, is located at a height of 3,120 metres and provides excellent trekking opportunities in Bhutan. Guru Rinpoche is said to have arrived here on the back of a tiger, hence the name Tiger's Nest.

Stay in a hotel in Paro for the night.

Day 4 : Departure from Paro

This is the final day of your four-day Bhutan tour. After breakfast, you check out of the hotel and are assisted to the airport to catch your flight to your next destination.
