Journey to Druk Yul Tour ( 5 days )

Journey to Druk Yul Tour

Trip Overview

As we journey to the ancient kingdom of Bhutan on this 05 day tour, we observe the vibrancy of some of the largest, oldest, most spectacular & ornate dzongs {fortress monasteries} in this quiet but pulsating little kingdom. We go on to travel through fertile valleys, scenic villages & ancient histories in the city of Paro, the heartland of the Drukpa people. Look out for rare animals & plant species as you travel through stunning wooded valleys blooming with flowers, past imposing fortresses, serene monasteries & bustling markets in Thimphu, Punakha & Wangdiphodrang. Observe the unique atmosphere in the Land of the Thunder Dragon. This is an exploration of a vibrant culture, their clothing & artistic crafts & the chilly spicy food that warms the gut…& we also learn of the ancient Buddhist heritage the Bhutanese keep close to their hearts.

This tour extends to the Memorial Chorten - Tashichhodzong
On the drive back, we stop at the mini takin zoo (Takin is the national animal of Bhutan). We later visit a paper factory and drive on to visit Tashichhodzong, the seat of the Royal Government and the summer residence of the Head Abbot and the monk body. Our tour concludes as we take a stroll along a street with the numerous handicraft stores in town in the evening & it's wise to check out the intricately woven Bhutanese textiles and exclusive handicrafts which you can take back with you as a souvenir of your trip to wonderful Bhutan…so well known as the 'last Shangri-La on the planet. Our tour concludes in the wonderful settings of amazing landscapes with towering mountains gleaming with snow amidst deep green forests & quaint terraced fields stretching for miles beyond the horizons of green hillocks. This tour has been shaped to give you the most of this Himalayan kingdom if you're cramped on time.
