About the Destination:

Bhutan, a destination like no other. Centered in the lap of Himalayas, tucked between China and India, laced by thick woods and deep ravines, it lies in the middle of exceptional landscapes. One step inside and you are into another world, a magnificent world where time slows down and peace and tranquility reign and each day feel more phenomenal from the last.

About the trip:
- Make the most out of this trip to Bhutan; start from the Indo-Bhutan a border town, Phuentsholing and witness how the harmony in the two cultures lights up its markets. The next door is Bhutan’s own Metropolis, Thimphu. It is called so because it's one foot is in medieval times and yet it flaunts exemplary modern architecture.
- Drive towards the lush Punakha Valley across the great heights of Thimphu from over the Dochu La Pass and admire the grand 108 chortens. Root for the fertility temple, Chimi Lakhang on the way and later behold the Palace of Great Happiness, also known as the Punakha Dzong.
-
Witness the nation’s rich heritage in the Paro museum, housed in a 17th-century building, roam around the cobweb of old monasteries and dzongs, then travel back for an ample sum of miles to Phuentsholing, linger a while enough to know that it is a perfect end to a perfect week.
