Similarly, on the East lies the Arunachal Pradesh of India and the State of Assam. And finally, to the South lies West Bengal. Bhutanese people follow Buddhism.

Itinerary

Arrival on: Bhutan

Departure from: Bhutan

Day 1

Arrival at Bhutan, Paro International Airport and sightseeing in the afternoon (2250m)

The flight into Bhutan is one of the most interesting Mountain flights in the world. You will be welcomed by the representative of Adventure mission Nepal treks and expedition and transferred to the hotel. After a brief rest and lunch, we will head towards the Ta Dzong, the National Museum of Bhutan. After the visit to the Museum, we take a short walk to the Rinpung Dzong often described as the fort with heaps of Jewel. Khichu Lhakhang is the next place we visit. It is the oldest monument in the small kingdom of Bhutan. By the late afternoon, we reach the Drugyal Dzong (Bhutan Victory Fort) built around the mid 17th century in the memory of the Bhutanese victory over the Tibetan invaders.

Day 2

Excursion to the Tigers Nest (3190m).

After a warm and nice breakfast served at the hotel, we will hike up the 4200 steps to the Tiger's Nest, locally known as the Taktsang Monastery. This monastery has been the identification of Bhutan since a long time because of its religious significance and also because of its location. The Mahayani Buddhist believes that the first Dalai Lama, Padmasamvav flew on a back of a tigress to her for Meditation. While coming down we will have lunch halfway down the hill and continue to Paro.

Day 3

Trek to Jele Dzong.

A little more than 4 hours of trek takes us to our overnight camp at Jele Dzong (3400m). Jele Dzong is mostly in ruins but there is a Lhakhang (Buddhist Temple) with the statute of Buddha Sakyamuni.

Day 4

Trek to Jangchulakha

We don’t have a long walk after breakfast as we only walk for a couple of hours. We climb up for about half an hour and go down 15 minutes to reach a top of a ridge. Then walk through the forest for an hour before we reach Jangchulakha, situated at an altitude of 3600m from sea level and it is also the highest point of our trek.

Day 5

Trek to Langrithang.

We start the day with a short climb to a hill from where you can see the Mt. Jumolhari and neighboring peaks. After crossing the ridge we go down through the trail to the Jimilangtsho Lake and make a stop for lunch. We go down further until reaching Langrithang. You will cover almost 14 kilometers in terms of distance and walk for little more than 4 hours before reaching Langrithang.

Day 6

Trek to Tsaluna and drive to Thimpu.

4 hours hike down through the narrow trail and we reach Tsaluna and drive ahead to Thimpu. We can explore Thimpu in the evening. You can drive to Paro for the flight next morning or wake up 2 hours earlier, before sunrise and drive to Paro. You can decide before finalizing the trip with Adventure Mission Nepal.

Day 7

Drive to Paro and final Departure.

Flights from Bhutan are scheduled early in the morning as only Druk air flies to and from Bhutan. So don’t forget to pack breakfast if you don’t have time to eat it at the hotel. Bye from Bhutan.
