Journey to Druk Yul is perfectly tailored to offer you an insightful cultural immersion in Bhutan.

Firstly, taking in the relentless succession of astonishing cultural wonders, you travel from Paro to Thimpu and there on to Wangduephodrang. The journey is silhouetted by outstanding panoramic views. Drugyel Dzong majestically towers Paro with dominating views of Mount Chomolhari. Fabulously perched high overlooking the entire valley, Ta-Dzong houses distinctive cultural monuments and artifacts that reflect a long and varied history.

Journey to Druk Yul is the package tour where you get to experience indigenous culture in its most authentic form of visiting monasteries, museums, the stupa, library, Chorten and many such sites of cultural importance. You can explore the local markets for a good selection of crafted artifacts, ceramics, basketry, traditional wood carvings, and contemporary paintings. Wangduephodrang and Punakha Dzong further acquaint you with the deep-rooted cultural values of Bhutan.

Overall, this is a short trip of five days that starts and ends at Paro.

During your stay in Paro valley, you visit the ruined fortress of Drugyel Dzong. On clear weather Mount Chomolhari 7320 meters can be seen towering over the dzong. Proceed through the beautiful valley to the watchtower or locally known as Ta-Dzong. It was housed into the National Museum in the 1960s by the third King Jigme Dorji Wangchuck. The seven floors museum highlights various aspects of Bhutanese culture and history dating back to the 7th century.

The next day you drive to Thimpu. You then visit the Memorial Chorten built in the memory of the late King Jigme Dorji Wangchuck, 15-century Changangkha monastery, and the new Drupthob nunnery temple. PM drive 3 hours to Wangduephodrang crossing the Dochula pass 3100 meters. On fine weather, you will see the eastern Himalayan ranges including the highest mountain in Bhutan Mt.Gangar Punsum 7520 meters. From Thimpu, you drive to Wangdephodrang.

Lastly, you drive to Punakha valley to visit the Punakha Dzong and again drive back to Paro. Before that, you visit the oldest building in Bhutan, the Simtokha Dzong which now serves as a Buddhist university.
