Like its sister tour Paro to Phuentsholing, the Phuentsholing to Paro tour was designed to introduce people to Bhutanese lifestyle and landscape, while acting as a prelude or postlude tour to or from India. This tour is also ideal for participants who would like to continue their adventure into Nepal.
The Phuentsholing to Paro tour begins in Phuentsholing where you meet with a guide and enter Bhutan. The following day, the tour heads west to visit Bhutan’s beautiful mountains, forests and waterfalls. Depending on the day of the week, the tour will visit landmarks, a museum, an art school, a fortress and a paper factory. If the tour takes place over a weekend, participants will visit the outdoor market instead, because the entire city closes down for the market. The tour then takes a scenic drive to Punakha, crossing the Dochu La Pass, forests, and ice fields, and visits a fertility temple and the Punakha Fortress. The following day, the tour arrives in Paro and visits Druk Wangyal Monastery. One of the last destinations on the tour is the Tiger’s Nest Monastery.
If you are interested in a transnational adventure, which visits the beautiful relics and countryside of Bhutan, while navigating from Northern India this trip is for you.
