Itinerary idea in detail

Ask us if you would also like us to arrange your international flights at our preferred rates.

  • Arrive in Kathmandu, meet your local guide and check in at your hotel. Enjoy an afternoon tour of the city. You'll head outside the city to Swayambhunath, an important Buddhist stupa with views across the Kathmandu Valley. This evening is free; you might like to walk into the city center to try a few local delicacies.

  • This morning, fly to Paro. On arrival, you will be met by your guide and driver and make the short journey to Thimphu. Along the way, you'll visit the Simtokha Dzong, one of the oldest monasteries in Bhutan. You will spend the evening in the luxurious Amankora Thimphu, which enjoys fabulous views of the surrounding scenery.

  • Today is your first full day in Bhutan. You may like to spend part of the morning looking around the weekend market in Thimphu before visiting some additional sites — with a personal driver and guide, your tour will be tailored to your interests.

  • Travel by road to Punakha, over the Dochu La pass offering stunning views. You can also visit the Chimi Lhakhang temple before reaching Punakha. On arrival in Punakha, you will check in to Amankora Punakha, which sits next to the Mo Chhu River.

  • Visit Punakha Dzong and enjoy the amazing scenery with gentle walks accompanied by your guide. The walks can be tailored to your fitness levels. You'll spend another evening in Punakha.

  • Return to Paro by road. In the afternoon, you can visit Paro Dzong and the National Museum. This evening, stay at Amankora Paro — each suite is surrounded by forest, creating a secluded feel.

  • Rise early to make the steep climb to the magnificent Tiger's Nest Monastery. This afternoon visit Drukgyel Dzong, a ruined fortress and temple. It's an interesting contrast to more well-preserved sites you will have already seen.

  • Spend the day at Cheli La, one of the highest passes in the area. Here you can walk and visit some local villages and admire the mountain views. For your last night in Paro, you might want to spend the evening outside, enjoying drinks by the fire.

  • Return to the airport for your flight to Kathmandu. The afternoon is at leisure. If you wish, you can explore the city — it's a good place to purchase souvenirs.

  • This morning you will catch your return homeward-bound flights.
