Bhutan, a Buddhist kingdom on the Himalayas’ eastern edge, is known for its monasteries, fortresses (or dzongs) and dramatic landscapes that range from subtropical plains to steep mountains and valleys. In the High Himalayas, peaks such as 7,326m Jomolhari are popular trekking destinations. Paro Taktsang monastery (also known as Tiger’s Nest) clings to cliffs above the forested Paro Valley. Paro airport, the only international airport in Bhutan, is one of the trickiest airports in the world to land in. Planes manoeuvre between mountains to land on a runway that feels like a road. Seeing my plane park, conjured the sense of a car on a beautiful road. The airport building, symbolic of the ubiquitous and particularistic architecture you find throughout Bhutan, feels like an ornate house at the end of a road.

The National Museum of Bhutan is housed inside the revamped circular Ta-dzong building, an ancient watchtower above the Paro Dzong and houses some of the finest specimens of Bhutanese art.

DAY 6 : PARO DISTRICT
Drive to Satsam Chorten for a soft hike to Taktsang Monastery (Tiger’s Nest). The monastery is perched on a rocky ledge with a sheer drop of nearly 800m, overlooking the Paro Valley and the river. The hike takes about 4 hours back and forth. Once you reach the view point of the monastery you have the option to visit the monastery which takes another hour on foot. The first monastery was constructed 1694, but in 1998 a tragic fire destroyed most of the original buildings - which have since been painstakingly restored to their former glory. Later visit Kyichu Lhakhang, a Buddhist temple in Paro, one of the oldest monasteries in the country. Afterwards, visit a Farm House where your dinner will be arranged with a local family.
