Overview

4 Nights and 5 Days Bhutan Tour takes you to the main cities of Paro and Thimpu in the Land of Thunder Dragon. 

This short tour to the two prosperous cities - Paro and Thimpu allows you to learn culture, traditions, living philosophy, and an economy characterized by Bhutan.

Your trip to "The Land of Happiness" takes you to top attractions like Jyichu Lhakhang, the Heritage Museum, the Thirteen School of Arts and Crafts, the National Textile Museum, traditional paper mill, and countless other attractions.

A short visit to the famous Taktsang Monastery (Tiger's Nest Monastery), a sacred site located on a 3120 meters high cliff, about 900 meters above the Paro, is the main highlight of this tour, as the panoramic view of the Paro valley from the monastery is overwhelmingly beautiful.

This short tour is specially designed for time-restricted travelers, which is near perfect but if you could add some extra days then Nepal Bhutan 8 days tour would be even better.

You will surely fall in love with this country once you visit it.
