Popularly known as the “Land of Grand Dragon”, Bhutan is a Kingdom in the laps of Himalayas. The picturesque mountains with unique Flora and fauna give a feel of nature to the trekkers, in addition to several world renowned and breathtaking beautiful Buddhist monasteries. Travel to Bhutan can be planned by air at the only international airport at Paro, which is the gateway to Bhutan, from Delhi, Kolkata, Kathmandu and Bangkok. Bhutan Tour of 7-8 days will guide you through the Bhutan’s nature’s delight and also the rich cultural heritage of the country. After arriving at Paro you will be travelling 55 kms to the national capital Thimphu by road. Local sightseeing at Paro includes Memorial Chorten, the stupa built in 1974 in the memory of Bhutan’s third King, His Late Majesty, King Jigme Dorji Wangchuk National Textile Museum, Folk Heritage Museum, and National Library, and shop for unique Bhutanese handicrafts and jewellery.
