In the west, it is separated from Nepal by the Indian state of Sikkim, while further south, it is divided from Bangladesh by the Indian states of Assam and West Bengal.

Experience the thrill of flying to Paro, Bhutan, with Druk Air or Bhutan Air! On a clear day, you’ll have a stunning view of the Himalayas, including Mount Everest (for those flying from Delhi or Kathmandu, be sure to sit on the left side of the flight!). The approach to Bhutan is especially breathtaking, as you descend through the foothills and make a few sharp turns to land at the tiny airstrip. Once you arrive, you’ll be greeted by your Bhutanese guide and driven to Thimphu.
Depending on your flight time; visit the following sights:
Kuenselcholing View Point: The best way to get a good overview of the Thimphu Valley is to visit Buddha Point (Kuensel Phodrang). It’s only a short drive away from the town. At Buddha point, you can pay your respects to the largest statue in the country, offer prayers, and take in the breathtaking views of the valley.
Memorial Chorten: This Chorten was built in 1974 as a tribute to King Jigme Dorji Wangchuck, the third King of Bhutan and the father of modern Bhutanese society.
Tashichho Dzong: The majestic fortress of glorious religion, known as the ‘Dzong’, was constructed in 1641 by Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyel. It features the secretariat building, the throne room, the office of the king, and the central monk body. After exploring the Dzong, take some time to relax and explore the city.
Start your morning off with a scenic drive from Thimphu to Paro Valley, where you’ll find the iconic Taktsang Monastery, also known as “Tiger’s Nest”. Believed to be the site where Guru Rimpoche or Guru Padmasambhava flew on the back of a tigress from Tibet and meditated in the cave for three months, the monastery is perched on a rock overlooking a 9678-foot sheer drop. Though the main building was destroyed by a fire in 1998, the hike up to the monastery’s viewpoint is an exhilarating experience, taking about two and a half hours of average walking (five hours round trip).
If you’d prefer not to hike, you can opt to ride a horse for an extra US$25 per person.
After your journey to the top, visit Kichu Lhakhang, Ringpung Zong, and the National Museum to get a glimpse of how the locals live.
Departure Transfer to Paro Airport and fly to Kathmandu (1310 m) or your onward destination.
Paro International Airport connects to the international airports of Nepal (Kathmandu; KTM), India (Delhi, Bagdogra, Kolkotta, Gaya, Guwahati), Bangladesh (Dhaka), Thailand (Bangkok), and Singapore (SIN).

My wife and I recently used Himalayan Windows to coordinate a short trip to Bhutan. Anup was kind, prompt, and professional throughout the process. He arranged a 3-day, 2-night trip that packed in the best of Bhutan for the time that we had. We enjoyed the flight over Mount Everest, the incredible dzongs, and the trek up to the Tiger’s Nest monastery. The price was very reasonable, considering the package included a driver and a guide who took us everywhere. Himalayan Windows made sure that our travel visas and airline tickets were ready when we arrived.
Anup also coordinated a hike for us from Nagarkot to Dhulikhel in Nepal. Once again, the price was reasonable and the experience was incredible. Our guide and driver were knowledgeable, courteous, and accommodating.
We plan to return to Nepal soon, and will once again rely on Anup and Himalayan Windows to provide a great time at a great price.

Payment can be made via Wire Transfer or Credit Card. All credit card payments are securely processed and a bank fee applies.
Cancellation: For cancellations more than 30 days before the Tour Start Date, there will be no cancellation fee. If the cancellation happens within 29-4 days prior to the Tour Start Date, a charge of 30% of the total invoice amount will be applied. Cancellations occurring within 3 days or less of the start date or in the case of a no-show, 100% of the total invoice amount will be charged. Learn more about Terms and Conditions.
Accommodation: Accommodation is typically provided in twin rooms in cities, though a single supplement can be requested for an additional fee. During peak season, it can be difficult to find single or twin rooms in the mountains, so our lodges usually offer dormitory-style accommodation. Our priority is always to provide clean and safe rooms for our guests.
Meals: Our packages in Bhutan include full board meals, with breakfast, lunch, and dinner included. For treks, all meals are provided, but you will need to pay extra for drinking water and snacks.
Nepal Visa: If you are planning a trip to Nepal, you must have a valid passport and Nepal Visa. Depending on your country of origin, you may need to obtain a Nepal Tourist Visa before your arrival. To be eligible, your passport should be valid for a minimum of six months from your Tour Start Date. If you are planning on traveling to multiple countries on your trip, make sure to get a multi-entries Nepal Visa.
Bhutan Visa Clearance: All visitors to Bhutan must have a valid Bhutan Visa Clearance before their trip. To obtain it, you must submit a color-scanned copy of your passport, which must be valid for at least 6 months from the start date of your tour. Your tour operator will send you a Visa Clearance prior to your departure, which you must present at the Druk Air/Bhutan Airlines counter during check-in. Once you arrive at Paro Airport, your passport will be stamped with the original visa.
Tibet Group Visa (TGV): All travelers from any nation intending to go to Tibet from Nepal must obtain a Tibet Group Visa (TGV) in Kathmandu with the help of a tour operator. To ensure the successful application of the TGV, you should plan to arrive in Kathmandu 3-4 working days before your travel date. If you are coming from China, you will not require a TGV; instead, you will need a Chinese Visa and Permit. To find out more about the process of entering Tibet, please look into the Tibet entry procedure.
Nepal & Bhutan: Visiting Nepal and Bhutan at the same time is ideal as they share a similar climate. From high mountains to low land sub-tropical plains and jungles, the two countries have similar weather. The best time to visit is from March to April (spring) and October to December (autumn and early winter). During these months, the air is clean and fresh with sunny skies. January and February are colder months, while June, July, and August (summer) are typically monsoon seasons.
Tibet: It is best to visit Tibet between April and October when the weather is warm and the skies are clear. However, from November to March, it is still possible to explore certain areas like Namtso, Everest Base Camp, and Mount Kailash, as long as the roads are not blocked by snow. Temperatures during this time may be quite cold.
