Day 1: Reach the destination and acclimatize
Fly into Bhutan above the beautiful Himalayan mountains.The green wall of hills known as the “Dooars,” or entrances to Bhutan, rises higher and higher as the aircraft flies northward toward the Tibet border. Silvery rivers meander through valleys. Waterfalls tumble down mountains covered in forest, while to the north, the massive snow-capped peaks of the inner Himalayas rise to the heavens. Farmhouses are scattered across the slopes on both sides of the plane. Look down to see Paro Dzong, located on a hilltop overlooking the Paro Chu (river), and Ta Dzong, formerly a watchtower and now the National Museum, rising above it as the aircraft descended into the Paro valley.
Our guide will pick you up at the Paro airport and drive you to Thimphu after you have finished your immigration formalities to the capital of Bhutan. The fascinating fusion of old and new can be found in Thimphu.
