(6 Days - Departs Daily on a Private Basis) Thimphu, Paro
This is the ideal tour for travelers with a limited amount of time to spend in Bhutan. Spend six days exploring the country’s highlights—the Paro and Thimphu valleys—with a private guide and driver, all while staying at the top luxury properties in each location.
Begin in Thimphu, the charming capital of Bhutan. Enjoy comprehensive touring of Thimphu’s many cultural attractions and important Buddhist highlights. Meet local people, learn about local traditions, explore a bustling market, and visit various small museums specializing in textiles, folk heritage, and traditional Bhutanese arts and crafts. Other activities can be incorporated based on your interests, such as a private day hike to rural villages and monasteries, a private Bhutanese cooking lesson at a local home, a meeting with a Bhutanese astrologer, or a private meditation session with monks.
Conclude the tour with three days in Paro, a resort town. Visit the National Museum, explore the surrounding valleys, and visit Tiger's Nest, a breathtaking monastery clinging to a cliff that is one of the most important icons of Bhutan. Other options include shopping for crafts and Himalayan and Buddhist items, a private archery lesson, a biking excursion, or simply relaxing and enjoying traditional Bhutanese spa treatments.
Throughout Bhutan, Artisans of Leisure will arrange for you to experience the best the country has to offer.
