What our specialists say...

This itinerary incorporates the very best of western Bhutan and it does so in the most luxurious accommodation available. Using Kathmandu as the gateway to the country, you will visit the majestic Punakha Dzong, experience the relative hustle and bustle of the capital Thimphu (although Nepal’s capital does make this feel like a sleepy rural village) before ending in Paro and the wonderful Tiger’s Nest Monastery.

We recommend this trip for:

  • Kathmandu
  • Paro
  • Thimphu
  • Punakha
  • Paro
  • Kathmandu
