On your first day in Bhutan, you’ll arrive at the Paro International Airport. Your private guide will meet you after baggage claim to take you to your hotel in the capital of Bhutan, Thimphu. This gorgeous and unique city high above the world at an accelerated altitude of 7,333 feet above sea level, it may take you a little bit to get used to the change in the air. Take it slow the first day, but enjoy all the sights and sounds around you in this mysterious location. You’ll be instantly immersed in the local customs, watching monks in traditional red robes go about their day.
The morning will begin with a yoga practice outside overlooking the glorious sunrise before you head out for the day. As the former capital of Bhutan, Punakha is a worthy city to explore. After yoga in the morning, you’ll be ready for some more exploring and sightseeing all around this great land. The Dochula Pass offers gorgeous views of the Himalayas that you won’t see anywhere else, totally unobstructed and perfect.
Next Druk Wangyal Lhakhang temple which was completed in 2008 and is a popular tourist spot to visit, along with one of the most beautiful sights in all of Bhutan, the Punakha Dzong, which sits on two rivers and is the best example of Bhutanese architecture you can find.
Then you’ll have an hour long hike to Khamsum Yulley Namgyal Chorten, which is a splendid four story temple. Upon returning to your hotel, you’ll have a nightly yoga class that isn’t too strenuous because of the nature of the day’s activities, giving you quite the workout.
Since the day has a full schedule of hiking, a shortened yoga wakeup is scheduled for this morning. This will allow your muscles to stretch and loosen up for a day of vigorous hiking. The final tour day is a more expansive hike of the Taktsang Monastery (Tiger’s Nest). This stunning locale is 10,000 feet above sea level to present you with an amazing vista you’ll never forget.
After that it’s a short drive to the ruins of Drukgyel Dzong, built in 1647. You’ll finish out the day with a visit to a seventh century Buddhist temple, the Kyichu Lhakhang, One of the oldest and most extraordinary temples, you’ll feel at one with Bhutan when you see the beauty that is surrounding this revered location.
At the hotel, you’ll have the option of just relaxing or joining a yoga class, which is all about slower breathing and simpler movements.
