With the family for a week in the land of the Thunder Dragon

Trip description

A trip to Bhutan is a silk adventure. Of course, it is a trip that must be entirely organized in advance and that presupposes being supervised on a daily basis. So it is not a trip for backpackers or individual travellers, but rather for families. They will find all the luxury and service they could expect, even with young children.

Day 1 : First step in Bhutan

Arrival in Paro. After lunch, direction the capital, Thimphu. Walk in town and visit the dzong (famous fortress-temples of Bhutan) of the capital.

Day 2 : En route to Dzong

The adventure begins with the crossing of the Col de Dochu La, which culminates at 3 050 m. By the time, the summits of the East Himalaya appear in the distance: Tsendagang, Terigang or Gangkar Punsum, the highest summit in Bhutan. The journey continues towards the Dzong valley. Access to one of Bhutan's finest dzongs is carried out by a suspended bridge.

Day 3 : En route to Trongsa

The road will be long (5 hours/130 km) to reach Trongsa in the Bumthang region. The walk to Chimi Lhakang monastery offers a pleasant stopover. In the small neighbouring village, women cook rice in large stoves. A new pass, that of Pele La Pass (3 420 m), must be crossed. Along the winding road, it is not uncommon to meet some the who graze.

Day 4 : Trongsa

This day will be placed under the sign of the visits: Nonnerie Kungarapten and walk in the southern district.

Day 5 : En route to the Bumthang valley

Take 3 hours to reach the Bumthang valley. Bordered west by the Black Mountains, central Bhutan is traversed by two rivers that take their source at the Himalayas. From Trongsa, you cross a third and fourth collar.

Day 6 : En route to Thimphu

It is now time to go back to Thimphu, where there is no shortage of visits: Folk Heritage Museum, national bookshop, tour of the chörten of Her Majesty Jigme Dorji Wangchuck.

Day 7 : Paro and Tiger Nest

After leaving the capital, visit Paro to visit the Dzong, the national museum and stroll through the surrounding countryside, including the Tiger Nest. A few hours'walk for some, or a real excursion for others, visitors must make an effort to reach the monastery hung on the mountain side. It is really worth it.
