Introduction to Bhutan Discover Tour

Bhutan Discover Tour is one of the most exciting tour packages in Bhutan which includes almost all the popular tourist destinations of Bhutan. The kingdom of Bhutan, located in the heart of the Great Himalayas, opened its doors to foreigners only in 1974. This is a society where old culture and traditional life have been going on for centuries. The Bhutanese people have set an excellent example for the preservation of natural and cultural heritage.

Bhutan is a Buddhist kingdom whose official religion is Buddhism and it is practiced by 75% of the country’s population. Bhutan’s second religion is Hinduism which is closely related to Buddhism and is practiced by about 25% of the population. Buddhism plays an important role in the cultural, ethical, and social development of Bhutan and the Bhutanese people. Bhutan Discover Tour includes famous places like Paro, Thimphu, Punakha, Trongsa, Bumthang, Shukdrag Gompa, Fobjikha Valley, and Ura Valley.

This magnificent Bhutan Discover Tour offers a wonderful opportunity to explore the natural wonders of Bhutan, as well as to get a real experience of traditional life. Bhutan Discover Tour takes you to high passes through the isolated wilderness, monasteries, and remote and peaceful villages and offers breathtaking mountain views that you can only reach on foot.

While landing at Paro, Bhutan’s only international airport, you can see breathtaking views of the Himalayan mountains, including Bhutan’s sacred Jumolhari and Jichu Drake peaks. Here you visit Paro Dzong and Kyichu Temple which is the oldest temple in the country.

Visit Thimpu – The capital of Bhutan

The next day you visit Thimphu, the capital of Bhutan, which is also the home to the King of Bhutan. Most of the administrative offices, headquarters, and other important structures of the country are located in this capital. You also visit the Zoo, Nanari Temple, the National Library, and the School of Arts and Crafts. After driving 12 kilometers from Thimphu, you hike for about 45 minutes to Tango Monastery.

The monastery is a Buddhist college built in the 16th century. From there it is a 45-minute hike to the next monastery, Chagri Monastery.

Another important place to visit is Punakha which is one of the main highlights of western Bhutan. This famous religious site is a symbol of devotion to saint Lama Drukpa Kuenley and his legacy. The amazing Bhutanese architecture on display at Punakha dzong is one of the must-sees for all visitors.

Visit the famous Tiger’s Next Monastery in Bhutan

After visiting Trongsa, Bumthang, Ura valley, and Phobjikha valley, you will come back to Paro and visit Tiger’s Nest Monastery, the most famous monastery in Bhutan. The world-famous tiger’s nest monastery is built on a high mountain rock and has undergone extensive maintenance in recent years due to fire damage.  Paro International Airport will be your final destination, where it all started.

Frequently asked questions about this trip

Can I visit Bhutan myself?

No, you can only tour Bhutan through a licensed tour agency that must be registered with the Bhutan Tourism Council. All tourists visiting Bhutan must book a trip to Bhutan through a tour operator such as Odyssey Treks.

How and where to apply for a Bhutan visa?

Tourists are not allowed to apply for their own visas and visa application services are not available at Bhutanese embassies. So, you can apply for a Bhutanese visa only through the official and registered travel agent and Odyssey Treks will handle the whole process for you.

Is altitude sickness common in Bhutan?

With the exception of a few cases, altitude sickness is not common among visitors to Bhutan. The first two days should suit you as most of the sights are less than 3000m high. If you want to go trekking (which is above 3000 meters), it is best to avoid overexertion and keep yourself hydrated. Consult your healthcare provider and take medication if necessary.

Are women safe to travel to Bhutan alone?

Yes, it is. Bhutan is considered one of the safest countries in the world for travel.

Is it possible to travel alone without joining a group?

Yes, it is possible. Most of our guests are traveling in private groups of 1 to a dozen.
