    Arrival in Paro - Thimphu

    Once your flight arrives at Paro airport, our guide will meet you and transfer you to Thimphu, the capital city of Bhutan. There is no busy street or skyscraper in Thimphu as capitals in other countries. It is more like a village with picturesque scenery. On the way, you will see the Tamchog Lhakhang Iron Bridge.

    After checking in at the hotel, you will have a Thimphu city tour including the National Memorial Chorten, built in memory of the third King of Bhutan Jigme Dorji Wangchuck. It is actually a stupa, housing many valuable religious paintings and Buddha statues. Over here you will see many local people circumambulating the Chorten throughout the day. Next stop is the Buddha Dordenma Statue, reputed as the largest seated statue of Buddha in the world. Later the Motithang Takin Preserve and the Zilukha Nunnery are scheduled. Takin is Bhutan's National animal that you will not be able to see anywhere else in the world. Thimphu Dzong (Tashichho Dzong), a finest example of Bhutanese architecture, is actually a beautiful fortress housing the King and government offices. The decoratively painted wood exterior with intricate carvings makes it a mandatory to take a lot of photos.

    The dinner will be served at Folk Heritage Cafeteria offering an authentic Bhutanese cuisine, local drinks, starter, main course and soup.
