Glimpse of the tour:

Welcome to Bhutan, the Land of the Thunder Dragon.

Bhutan - is a unique country both culturally and environmentally. Perched high in the Himalayas, it is the world’s last remaining Buddhist Kingdom. It has developed the philosophy of Gross National Happiness. Besides the stunning natural scenery, the enduring image of the country for most visitors is the strong sense of culture and tradition
Kyichu Lhakhang - Also known as Kyerchu Temple or Lho Kyerchu is an important Himalayan Buddhist temple situated in Lango Gewog of Paro District in Bhutan.

History says that the Jowo Temple of Kyichu is one of the oldest temples in Bhutan, originally built in the 7th century by the Tibetan Emperor Songtsän Gampo. It is considered to be one of the four border taming temples he built.


Kyerchu Temple

In the 8th century the temple was visited by Padmasambhava and it is believed he concealed many spiritual treasures here.
Chele La Pass - The Chele La Pass is one of the highest vantage points in Bhutan, from which you can marvel at commanding views of the surrounding snow-capped mountains and valleys while the Himalayan yaks grazing in the horizon, dotted with electricity pylons.A botanical paradise, you’ll also be able to spot sacred mountains Jomolhari and Jichu Drake as cascades of wild roses, purple and yellow primulas and swathes of deep blue iris drape the forest floor.

Chele La Pass

At a height of 3,988 metres, the Chele La Pass is not to be underestimated – chilly and windy, try and make it here before packed in your warmest clothes for some of the most gorgeous views to be had in Bhutan.
Tuck yourselves in in your warm clothes for this one, you’ll be able to feel the temperature drop as you gain altitude over the course of your two-hour thickly-forested drive from Paro. In winters, you will come across waterfalls, frozen rivers, alpine flowers and snow on the way to the pass.
Thimphu - The capital city, is a bustling town on the banks of the river Wang Chhu. It is home to the Bhutanese Royal Family, the Royal Government and to several foreign missions and development projects. The 169 feet bronze Buddha Dordenma that it just so happens to be the tallest Buddha Dordenma statue in the world is located at Kuenselphodrang, a hill overlooking the capital city of Thimphu. It is about 6 kms from the capital city. The Buddha statue itself is competed awaiting paintings, but visitors can drive up to the Buddha point and view the tallest statue of Lord Buddha. The view of Thimphu valley from the Buddha point is spectacular and beautiful, especially at night.
