Bhutan Encompassed Tour is an excellent opportunity to explore Bhutanese art, architecture, culture, and tradition. This tour encloses three major cities in Bhutan i.e. Thimpu, Paro, and Punakha. Thimpu provides a close encounter with ancient cultural and historical monasteries, shrines, and monuments. Paro offers colorful characteristics of Bhutan. And, Punakha contains old monasteries and offers a decent opportunity to absorb more about Buddhism. Punakha is the old and Thimpu is the new capital cities of Bhutan.
The most interesting characteristic of this tour is the exploration of the Taktsang Monastery hanging in the upright cliff. This monastery is also popularly known as ‘Tiger’s Nest’. On the way of Thimphu to Punakha is the Dochula Pass at an elevation of 3,140 meters which provides amazing all-encompassing perspectives of the snow-topped mountains towards the north in a sunny morning. The view of Thimpu is perfectly observed from Buddha’s point in Thimpu. It gives the most beautiful view of this tiny capital. Likewise, Punakha Dzong, Kyichu-Lhakhang (oldest temple in Bhutan) are the most attractive and visited monasteries and shrines with their own cultural importance.
The tour starts from Paro, then goes to Thimpu, then to Punakha, and again to Paro; hence Paro is the starting and ending point of this tour. This tour encircling three primary cities is the perfect way to witness Bhutan and its pristine sights and sounds.
