A popular short trek in Bhutan which goes through high altitude and is moderately strenuous. The trek starts from Thimphu and ends in Paro, passing through some beautiful high Altitude lakes about 3800 m. It is not only a trek in the land of Dragon but also a cultural experience in Bhutan as it involves a couple of day tours.

Extensively exploration tour visiting all the major sights of Central Bhutan. This tour visits the famous Taktsang (Tiger’s Nest), Trongsa, Gangtey and Wangdue the fabulous valleys to be seen while visiting the kingdom. In Kathmandu, we visit several UNESCO World Heritage Sites before flying to Paro, Bhutan. In Bhutan, we travel to many townships and tour several dzongs (fortresses), temples, and other cultural and historical landmarks.

While in Bhutan, we also pass through the high Dochu La pass and hike to the enchanting Taktsang(Tiger’s Nest) Monastery. However, our Nepal and Bhutan Tour does not end here. We fly back to Kathmandu and visit Patan and Bhaktapur cities that have charmed millions of tourists over the years with its historical architecture and rich cultural heritage. Then we drive to Nagarkot, a village renowned for its sunrise and sunset views of the Himalayas and enjoy spectacular sunset views amidst the tall and mighty peaks.
