Bhutan is renowned for its ancient fortress, dramatic landscapes, fascinating cultural heritage, and kind hospitality. A trip to this land of thunder dragons is always adventurous, whether it is short or long. In this package, we are introducing you to a short 4-day Bhutan tour from Kathmandu, Nepal. People of any age and country can join us on this short Bhutan tour for 4 days.
During the Short Bhutan tour, you will be discovering the tradition, beliefs, and norms of the Bhutanese people. You will learn about their traditional textile, paper, and handicrafts, along with visiting folklore museums. Untouched by modernity in many ways, Bhutan takes you back in time where you get to know about the brave Bhutanese warriors and kings & queens.
Tourism in Bhutan began in the mid-1970s, following a strict policy of allowing only a handful of tourists every year to safeguard the environment and culture. On this 4 day Bhutan tour, you will explore many tourist sites and try Bhutanese delicacies. The short Bhutan tour begins at Paro airport; our representatives will pick you up.
You will then explore Ta Dzong and Paro Dzong and drive to Thimphu to spend the night. The following day we have a full-day tour in Thimphu that begins with a visit to the National Folk Heritage Museum and then to National Textile Museum. During the tour, you will visit many other places like National Memorial Chorten, Paper Factory, Simtokha Dzong, and Tashichho Dzong.
On day two, we will drive back to Paro from Thimphu after the full-day tour to spend the night. The next morning, we have an adventurous hike to Taktsang Monastery, also known as the Tiger's Nest. It is one of the most photogenic locations in Bhutan. The monastery is perched graciously on the edge of a cliff more than 10,000 above sea level.
If you cannot walk, we can arrange a horse for you. The colorful prayer flags and the spectacular panorama of the mountains make the hike a lifetime experience. A couple of other places we will visit in Paro are Drukgyel Dzong and Kyichu Lhakhang. In between the tour of these monuments, we will also explore the local markets and do shopping.
